Vomitory was formed in 1989 by original guitarist Urban Gustafsson and bass player Ronnie Olson. Under influence of the growing underground scene and bands such as Sodom, Napalm Death, Slayer and Venom, their sound developed quite soon into pure death metal. During the early 90's they spread their name in the worldwide underground scene by releasing some demos and a vinyl 7.
In the mid-90's when the death metal scene began to stagnate, and while all brutal bands Split up or changed their style drastically, Vomitory released their debut full-length death metal explosion, Raped in Their Own Blood, in November 1996 on the Dutch indie label Fadeless records. It was greeted with great respect within the underground scene.
Album number two, Redemption (1999), showed a certain musical progress, but Vomitory also showed that they still stick to their brutal style of death metal and never follow any trends. In October 1999, Vomitory had been grinding death metal for a decade, and celebrated that by releasing a limited 10 picture mini-LP, featuring songs that represented different periods of the ten-year existence of the band.
After two albums on Fadeless records and some smaller European tours, contact between Vomitory and Metal Blade records were successfully established. Now the band was reduced to four members bass player Erik Rundqvist started taking care of the vocal duties as well. A successful European tour as support to Cannibal Corpse and the No Mercy festivals in 2000 passed and in November the same year Vomitory released their third album, entitled Revelation Nausea. The new four-piece line-up proved to be a good formula since the reviews were amazingly good!
Now another chapter has been written in the Vomitory history book. Nine new crushing hymns of death have been unleashed through their fourth album, Blood Rapture. Once again the brilliant production bears the mark of Henrik Larsson and Berno Studio.
Blood Rapture is a step forward in the same direction the band always has marched, so expect nothing but Death Fuckin' Metal!
