BIOGRAPHY

Demigod are a death metal band formed in 1990 in Loimaa, Finland. The band’s debut album Slumber of Sullen Eyes is highly regarded in the heavy metal community. Terrorizer included it in their list of “40 death metal albums that you must hear”, commenting: “It is with this often overlooked classic that one of the greatest love stories of all time unfolded: Florida’s pummeling groove meets Sweden’s buzzsaw guitar work in a union so deliciously evil it could move the hardest of bangers to tears of joy.”

Demigod was a popular group in the death metal underground of the 1990s; however, despite a steady status and a healthy number of gigs, the band split up in the mid-90s. Demigod re-formed in 1998, and was eventually signed by Spikefarm, a sublabel of the major Finnish metal record company Spinefarm, who released the band’s second album Shadow Mechanics.

Somewhere between 2002 and 2006, this co-operation came to an end, and the band recorded the follow-up to Shadow Mechanics without a label. The recordings were finished in the summer of 2006, and the album was released by the band’s own label, Open Game Productions, in 2007. Since late 2007, worldwide distribution has been handled by the Spanish label Xtreem Music, leaving only the Scandinavian market for the band’s own label. Xtreem Music has also re-released the debut album, previously long out of print.

In 2012, Esa Linden and several of the other “Slumber of Sullen Eyes” members took part in several reunion shows. After the string of shows was brought to a close, the band intended to begin writing another album.

Slumber of Sullen Eyes is the debut album by the Finnish death metal band Demigod. The album was released in 1992 on the Drowned Productions label. It was out of print for years but has been re-released worldwide by Xtreem Music in 2006. This remastered 2006 version includes the 1991 demo Unholy Domain as a bonus. The colour scheme of the artwork is somewhat different on the re-release, emphasizing copper and dark brown instead of the red-green-black of the original. As even the re-release CD had become hard to get, it was repressed in 2009.
