Xtreem Music will soon release a compilation of early demos and EPs from Oppression, with the label commenting:
"Not many people actually knows about the existence of this extraordinary Finnish band called Oppression that lived between 1987-1992 and recorded 4 demos and a 7" EP, but the fact that they never reached a big audience doesn't mean they're not an outstanding band! Never is it too late to discover a great band!
"Xtreem Music is rescuing these recordings and will release them on a CD entitled 'Scars 1988-1990' containing 10 songs (clocking 65 min.) with songs taken from their demos and 7" EP. The music Oppression played was a killer thrash metal pretty much inspired by Infernal Majesty, Dark Angel, & Hobbs Angel Of Death that later developed into a more technical and progressive style, that still retaning the mentioned influences, also adopted inspiration from acts like Mekong Delta, Coroner, and Death Row.
"The release date for 'Scars 1988-1990' is set for March 20th and in the meantime, you can listen to an advance track below." More...

Vol.2: OPPRESSION vs DIAMOND PLATE
