This band's profile is 'invisible', meaning that it's much less prominent on the site - either because it's incomplete, or maybe doesn't entirely fit MS format.
|When something is going on in one's head for a long time and when it haunts your dreams.... It's time to do something about it. As with Abruptum that was such a phenomena, around 1987 the plans were beginning to form in the mind of IT who wanted to give the world a shock with starting the evil war.
But it was not until the start of 1990 that Abruptum was born and then with the heep of the psychopath known as ALL. They released the demo "Abruptum - 90" at that time, but it showed to be nothing of the planned. So they kicked-out the bassplayer, EXT, who showed to be so afraid of the result of that demo that he joined the nearest church. The fact of the fate of the bassplayer gave IT and ALL a new push.
Later the very same year recorded "The Satanist Tunes" demo. Their demo is a great kult demo these days and it showed people what evil is when put on tape. Indeed they have shocked the world.
Abruptum also managed to put out a 7" EP which was called "Evil" and just to remind people of their existence they did a hard job with mail and interviews.
Things were going well but the curse sank it's teeth into Abruptum and ALL began to drink seriously and had to quit the band. IT went on alone and found EVIL who was just the perfect man to do the job beside him. They gave the world something to think about with "Orchestra of Dark" demo and also recorded a song called "De Profundis Mors Vas Cousumet". Abruptum had been in contact with Euronymous of DSP Records and Mayhem for awhile and he wanted to release their first album, they recorded it and got amazed (just as all the true maniacs around) of pure evil of the recording. "Obscuritatem Advoco Amplectere Me" was it's name and it was a kind of a "Veni, Vidi, Vici" thing which really messed up peoples heads.
Euronymous was killed by a traitor and with the release of their second album "In Umbra Malaitae Ambulabo in Aternum in Triumpho Tenebrarum" they buried "Deathlike Silence Productions". That second album is a strong sign of dark age that is on the way and that Abruptum will never die.
They have already released "Vi Sonus Veris Nigrae Malitaes" digipack.
The absolutely most evil band in the world are for one not be too big for words.
Abruptum was an avant-garde black metal and dark ambient band from Sweden formed in 1989 by IT (aka Tony Särkkä), All (aka Jim Berger), and Ext. IT had already planned to create the band in 1987, but it wasn't until 1990 that he found the right members to do it. The same year, they recorded their first two demos. After the release of the first demo, they sacked their bass player Ext. After the release of a 7-inch EP simply called Evil in 1991 (later re-released by Psychoslaughter), All began to drink heavily and was forced to leave the band. IT then found a new member in Evil (aka Morgan Steinmeyer Håkansson) of Marduk. Around this time, IT reunited with All to form the side project, Vondur. At the time, IT was one of the leaders within what was called the Satanic Black Circle, part of the Swedish Black metal scene.
Abruptum was signed to Euronymous's label Deathlike Silence Productions, on which they released two albums. Euronymous noted them as being "the audial essence of pure black evil", and IT considered Euronymous to be "a true ally." After Euronymous's murder, they would contribute the opening track to the compilation album Nordic Metal: A Tribute To Euronymous.
IT left the band and the black metal scene altogether in 1996, following numerous threats made to him and to his family. Evil kept Abruptum going and released material on his own record label, Blooddawn Productions, until 2005 when he announced that he had ended Abruptum.
