Whoa. Okay. This is probably the best demo from 1992. Everything about Eructation's Demo 1992 is absolutely perfect. Swedish brilliance of the highest degree.

The first thing you'll notice when listening is that the production is flawless. Very clean and full-sounding for a one-demo band, having released this mere demo way back in '92. All the instruments can be clearly heard, and it seems each and every part of this band gets their shot in the limelight throughout the course of this short demo. The guitars are the main highlight with their superb riffing. As you may already know, a lot of old school DM focus on the art of the riff, but Eructation take it to a whole new level (well, at the time). It seems like the basic foundation is built upon addictive riffs and very powerful, energetic hooks. Upon first listen, my mouth dropped open out of sheer disbelief. It just didn't add up, but here it is, destroying my ears as I post.

The bass player also gets his chance at some glory, especially toward the end of "Day of Confusion". He really goes wild with some fantastic bass..ing. In addition to these unheard-of techniques back in 1992, there are quite a few bizarre chunks to the demo. Mostly in the first song, there are these weird robot-like clean spoken vocals and during "Foul Feast", we're hit with this WTF sound effect. Just listen to this shit; my words don't do it justice.

Recommended to the highest degree.



  1. Honestly, the best sounding demo I've ever heard.

  2. Didn't download since I already have this, but it's great to see this gem getting a little publicity.

  3. I downloaded this back in December, and I forgot to thank you for this one. Really amazing demo

  4. Do you know where this demo can be bought? I've been looking forever, definitely my all time favorite

  5. Looks to be loooooooong out of print; sorry, buddy.

  6. I've got to thank you for your great review of this demo. It's amazing to read these words in 2010 (2009) about something that we created in 1992. I'm very happy and flattered that you (still) like it!
    I can "announce" that we have a few more tracks recorded that never got released back then and we are currently working on how we can present them to you. Probably around september. I'll keep you posted.

    Big Thank you.

  7. Tobias! Any news on these new tracks would be fantastic! I'm sure everybody out there who has heard this demo is dying to hear anything else!

    I just realized it's september...

    Are you thinking about releasing them as a new demo?

  8. We have finally been able to put some new tracks up on our myspace-page. The sound isn't as good as you would want it to be...but we hope that you will enjoy them anyways. http://www.myspace.com/eructationswe

    Mattias and I got together last night, for the first time in years, to discuss wich songs to put up on the page. He acctually had a few "new" songs that he has writen the last couple of years, a little tempting to start rehearsing again..!! :)

    1. Nice, any news ? Still wating and hope for a new songs./ Sam
