2.) The swedish Stillborn :
It all started in early 1984, when Kari Hokkanen and Petter Bryneson met Ingemar Henning. Kari and Petter were about to form a band, and they needed a guitarist to get started. Henning, who had been playing the guitar for only a year, accepted the offer to be in the band.
.....They made one obscure gig under the name The Cranium, before they realised that they needed a second guitarist. They met Erik Sandqvist at the legendary Einst?rzende Neubauten concert in Gothenburg 1984, and since he owned a Fender Twin Reverb, he could consider himself hired.
.....They made a lot of local gigs, some in Denmark as well, during 1985-86, and released their tape Tounge the thong (yes, it's misspelled) in 1985. It was made in 100 numbered copies, and became rare immediately. Petter left the band in 1986, and Peter Asp took his place as the drummer.
.....Soon they started to record what would become their debut Necrospirituals (released 1989), they didn't have a contract yet, but a deal was signed with Radium in 1988. Necrospirituals divided the critics in two halves; either they loved it, or they hated it. Nowadays, Necrospirituals have become a real cult-record. Songs from it have been covered by Paradise Lost and Entombed, amongst others.
.....Stillborn did a concert at the Hultsfred Festival in 1989, but soon after that the lead-singer Kari left the band. To replace Kari booth as a singer and as a bass-player, Henrick Karlsson and Sami Miari joined the band. The new line-up did a concert at the Berlin Independence Days festival in 1989, but soon after that Erik also left the band.
.....When Kim replaced Erik, the final line-up were complete, and the record company (Radium) they were signed to, was sold to MNW Record Group. They released The permanent solution 1991, and State of disconnection 1992, both recorded in Silence Studio, located in the deep Swedish forest.
.....The band did a lot of concerts, such as Popkomm, Cologne 1991 and Roskilde Festival 1992. They also did a couple of European tours.
.....In 1994 when the plans were to make a fourth record, things didn't worked out as expected, and Stillborn were history. But the members weren't history: Sami, Kim and Henning formed Colossus, together with Messiah Marcolin (Candlemass, Memento Mori), and Peter continued with Mary Beats Jane.
