Together with the obvious brutality and groove found in bands like Bolt Thrower, Grave or Edge of Sanity the material was also injected with more diverse ideas derived from the sound of bands like Satyricon and Sepultura thus creating something not entirely prone to be labelled old school death metal. During this process the need of a capable bass player arose as the material would benefit greatly from playing beyond the usual simplistic basslines of much brutal music. Invited into the project was then Johan Berglund from Swedish modern metal act This Haven, as he had the talent and chops to add the most challenging basslines. Inspired by such greats as Death and Sadus he went to work and during a few weeks added his amazing work. From the start of this project the legendary musician and producer Dan Swanö (Edge of Sanity/Nightingale) was enrolled to produce the album as well as play the drums. As needed most drumming has a touch of old school brutality but the material at times also called for an almost jazz inspired style which Dan handled without any problems.
The material on the album displays the evolution of old into new within the somewhat limited scene of extreme death metal. This album is for sure the epitome of simplicity mutated with superb craftsmanship. From http://www.mascotrecords.com/ There are at least four other bands named Demiurg along with the new Johansson/Swanö project. A Czech death metal band from the late 90s. A German gothic black metal band with two demo releases to their name. A Polish raw black metal outfit with current and ex-Moontower members: Belial (vocals, guitar) and Amaimoon (guitar, keyboard, drums programming). Formed in 1999 at Walbrzych (Poland). A Russian thrash/death band with only one full-length release. Read more on Last.fm.
