‘Deformity’ played on one of the fests before this (97-08-17). I found no track of this gig in the V.V. notes but the band mentioned it in their internet-writings of that time… Perhaps it was announced but never happened?

The band played death-core/metal and were from the H8000-area (Menen/Houthulst/Roeselare). They started in the summer of ‘95, with ‘Bolle’ (Dominiek Defrancq, drums), ‘Wulf’ (Kristof Dewulf a.k.a. ‘Christopher D. Wolff’, bass; also sang for ‘Solid’ for a little while), ‘Lookmulle’ Davy Vanlokeren (guitar; also in ‘Regression’, later bass in ‘Spoil Engine’) and ‘Gaze’ Steven Sanders (guitar; later ‘Spoil Engine’). A “power-throat” was found in the person of ‘Becque’ (Laurent Delbecque; later in the blues-band ‘Smoking General’ with Bjorn Lescouhier of ‘Shortsight’ & ‘Regression’). After a few months ‘Becque’ and ‘Lookmulle’ switched places (the latter sang on ‘Misanthrope’ & ‘Murder’…). Around the end of ’96 they recruted Michael (‘Micha Soprano’ Pintelon; also ‘Congress’) as second guitarist because “they sounded a bit too empty for your average metal-outfit”.

Their 1st release was the Beyond live demo (in Dadizele, ‘96; with Dave/y Vanlokeren on guitar and Laurent Delbecque doing vocals). The CD Misanthrope and the split-7” with ‘Congress’ followed (GoodLife ‘97). Recordings for Murder Within Sin were in spring ‘99 and that got released July ‘99 on Next Sentence recs (Charleroi, Bel) and Blasphemour recs (U.S.).

Early 2001, ‘Lookmulle’ left ‘Deformity’ due to throat-problems, with ‘Wulf’ replacing him as main singer. Promo-talk of that era mentions: “Nevertheless, ‘Deformity’ kept on raging and sees this effort paying off in a record deal with ‘Displeased recs’, one of Europe`s largest metal-labels”…

additions wellcome!…
