Nihilist


Nihilist were a five-piece death metal band from Stockholm, Sweden that were around from 1987 to 1989. Nihilist are perhaps best known as being the band that would eventually change their name and become known as the legendary Entombed. However, in the first few years of their existence, up until Entombed's debut Left Hand Path, most of these guys recorded a handful of demos and one 7" under the moniker Nihilist. Though the production here isn't near as sharp as it would later become, the band's roots definitely show through. For one, their recordings are usually the ones used to pinpoint the origins of the "buzzsaw" guitar tone. A ton of hardcore and metal bands have come to make this distinct sound, or as I like to call it, HM-2-core. The influence this band and their counterpart had is clearly apparent here. Not to mention the music here is pretty decent, keeping in mind that these are just demos from a band just getting its start. Enjoy.
