After cooperating with Roasting House Production "The World is Listening" was released in 1999 for the world to hear. The album was very well received when launched in Europe and after replacing drummer Hedener with Johan Helgesson DEBASE once again confirmed their reputation as being charismatic metalengines with an astonishing ability to conquer the stage. The stage is where they prove themselves as the tight, confident, hardworking band they are and if you haven't experienced DEBASE's live perfomance, you haven't really heard DEBASE. After supporting Alice Cooper during the "Brutal Planet" tour in summer 2000 DEBASE returned to Roasting House for the second album "Domination" which was released in fall 2001. The opening track and first video, "Stoneage 2K" is a strong statement of the cynical way we treat each other and our planet.
This strongly proved that Debase was really true metal and though high expectations were built-up no one was disappointed. The great response followed by "Domination" reached its climax in November that year when DEBASE toured Scandinavia warming up for Judas Priest and as usual the five piece combo delivered. Six months later it was time for another European crusade, tearing up the roads with Canadian thrashers Annihilator. Having roared 30 stages in 10 countries and newly signed to Sanctuary / Noise Records, the time had come to record their third studio album, "Unleashed".
This unstrained manifesto truly confirms their strength and skill, giving meaning to what ´s been referred to as DEBASE-metal.
