IMMOLATION (USA/NY)


Anti-Christian Metal band IMMOLATION was created in Yonkers, New York during February 1988 by frontman Ross Dolan, drummer Neal Boback and two erstwhile RIGOR MORTIS members, guitarists Robert Vigna and Thomas Wilkinson. Two demos, in July 1988 and June 1989, ensued prior to the July 1991 'Dawn Of Possession' album and the recruitment of drummer Craig Smilowski. These tracks had been constructed under the guidance of Harris Johns at Musiclab Studios in Berlin for Roadrunner Records. 'Dawn Of Possession' quickly found appreciation on a crowded market due in main to its convoluted and writhing unorthodoxy, pinch harmonics, atonal riffing and abundance of minor keys forming up a disturbing avalanche of unpredictability.

The first demo was released in summer 1988. It was recorded in June at a local studio called SleepyHollow Sound in Dobbs Ferry, NY and only had two songs on it.

This was recorded at the Loft in Bronxville, NY in the summer of 1989 and featured 3 songs.

This demo had a high gloss pro-printed cover that also did not feature any lyrics, and the first few hundred tapes were pro-dubbed as well. After the first few hundred, we started photo copying and dubbing them ourselves. -Ross
