70000 Tons of Metal - The World's Biggest Heavy Metal Cruise


Formed: 1990
From: unknown
Last Known Status: Active


The band started in the autumn 1988 under the name Beyond. They released a rehearsal-demo called "Birth Of The Dead" in the summer 1990. The line-up was Dan Larsson - vocals, Johan Jansson - guitar, John Forsberg - guitar, Tomas Änstgård - bass and Sonny Svedlund - drums.

They did some gigs with Beyond until they changed the line-up in the autumn 1990. Dan Larsson (vocals) and Tomas Änstgård (bass) left the band. Johan started to handle both the vocals and guitar and Michael Gunnarsson joined on bass. At the same time Beyond decided to change the name to Interment.

In February 1991, Interment entered the famous Sunlight Studio in Stockholm to record their first real demo tape, "Where Death Will Increase." Tomas Skogsberg did a great work and the tapes were spread around getting very good reviews and responses. At the end of the year, Sonny left the band and instead, Kennet Englund joined on drums.

In 1993, Interment started to fall apart. They did some rehearsals and worked on new songs but the spark wasn't there anymore. However in late 1993, Interment did one more demo recording with some new material, once again at Gorysound with Mr Swanö. On this recording, Johan wanted to concentrate only on the guitar work so Jens Törnroos (Uncanny, Uncurbed) was asked to do the vocals. After the recording, the band split up. Some of the members were already in other bands at the time.

Johan and Michael, played in their punk band Uncurbed, Johan and Kennet had their doom project Moondark (which later became Dellamorte). Michael, Kennet and Johan had a grind/gore project called Pyosisfied while John had several projects such as Astma, Morgue etc.

In the spring 2002, Johan wanted to unite Interment again for at least a re-recording of the old songs but also some new tunes. Everyone was thrilled about the idea, so Interment started to rehearse and was back in business.
