XYSMA (FINLAND)


The Finnish band Xysma was formed in 1988 in the Southwestern city of Naantali. Shortly after, the band relocates to nearby Turku. The original members of the band were vocalist Janitor Mustasch (Janitor Muurinen), guitarists Thee Stranius (Toni Stranius), Olivier Lawny (Olli Nurminen), bassist Vesa Litti, who would exit Xysma in 1992 and would be replaced by Dr. Heavenly (Kalle Taivainen) and drummer Marvellous Sydney Safe (Teppo Pulli). Xysma was originally called Repulse and is known to have been the first Finnish grindcore band. Initially, their sound was very close to that of Carcass, but through their five albums, one EP, one 7Ē, and one 12" mLP they experienced an impressive sound evolution that saw them toying with genres as diverse as 70ís psychedelic rock, pop, and progressive rock. Their recordings started with the 1989 Carcass worshipping demo Swarming the Maggots, after which they released two more death metal oriented EPís Above the Mind of Morbidity (Comeback) and Fata Morgana (Seraphic Decay). Their first full-length was titled Yeah (Comeback) and was a cross of Black Sabbath and the death metal sound that was being fermented around the time by bands like Entombed, Unleashed, Amorphis and Dismember. By 1992, Xysma had changed musically and releases First & Magical (Comeback) which adds lots of melodies and deeper rock and roll grooves to the songs.
