Cemetery Of Scream - Biography
The band Cemetery Of Scream is one of the pioneers of "atmospheric doom metal" in Poland, and their music holds a respectable position on the international music scene, too, which is confirmed by the good sales figures of the band's albums released abroad and by warm receptions to its gigs from foreign fans. The group's beginnings date back to 1992, when their first line-up was formed. In April 1993, the musicians recorded their debut material "Sameone" (released on Croon Records in Poland, and on Wild Rags Records in the USA). In January 1995, after a few gigs at major metal festivals, the band released its first full-length album called "Melancholy" (on Croon Records in Poland, and on Serenades Records in Europe). Still, in the same year, the renowned European label Nuclear Blast placed Cemetery of Scream's "Anxiety" video on the "Beauty in Darkness vol. I" video compilation. Cemetery of Scream were featured with bands such as Lacrimosa, Tiamat, Love Like Blood, and Therion. In 1997, guitarist Andrzej Oleszkiewicz was replaced by Pawel Góralczyk (formerly of Hellias), and with this re-formed line-up, the band launched their second album "Deeppression" (on Croon Records in Poland, and on Serenades Records in Europe). April 1999 saw the band releasing their mini-album "Fin de Siècle", which was a preview of their following album "Prelude to a Sentimental Journey". This album ("Prelude to…") was recorded at the end of the year 2000 and premiered in February 2001 (on Mystic Production in Poland, on Hammer Muzik in Europe, on Doom Records in Latin America, and on Irond Music in Russia). Several months later, Cemetery of Scream began working on the tracks to their current album "The Event Horizon" (released in July 2006).
