Xysma was Finnish Grindcore/Goregrind/Death Metal/Death 'n' Roll/Retro Rock band found in 1988, at Naantali. The band has been openly granted as the FIRST EVER Grindcore band from Finland. Originally named as Repulse, the band recorded their first demo "On a Cartrip to Sweden" in 1987. The Band was later named Xysma and under their new name, they released their legendary second demo "Swarming of the Maggots" in 1989. In 1990 they got signed to Comeback record company and they released their first EP "Above the Mind of Morbidity" in the same year. By then, Xysma had had more Death Metal influences to their music and the grindcore blasts decreased and the speed slowed down. Later that year they released a 7-inch "Fata Morgana" through American Seraphic Decay label. 1991 ,Xysma recorded their first full-length "Yeah", which was released by the old ComeBack label and recorded in the famous Swedish Sunlight Studios in Stockholm. This album introduced a original mix of Heavy/Death metal/psychedelic rock riffs in the vein of Black Sabbath and occasional Grindcore blasting. Therefore, Xysma can be considered the ACTUAL PIONEER OF DEATH 'N' ROLL, a style , which was later familiarized by Entombed in their 1993 "Wolverine Blues" album. Their second album "The First and Magical"'93 continued loosely the same musical paths as their former album, but now with less Grindcore and Death Metal influences. The name of their second album was sort of a sign of their major changes to be come. the third full-length, 1994's "Deluxe",showed the last signs of Grindcore blasts and Death 'n' Roll. "Lotto" of 1996 presented Xysma's whole new style, Retro-rock. The old days had been left behind for good. After their last album "Girl on the Beach" of 1998 the band split-up.


Discuss this awesome Finnish death/grind band
I really like Above the Mind of Morbidity, it has such ass-kicking riffs
I haven't heard any of their albums though, just the demo and two EPs

These don't sound like very good ambitions when driving...Judas Priest makes people want to go 200 mph, and Realm of Chaos is now an album for ramming shit. You are dangerous, dangerous people.

Sounds like fun everyonce in a while even though I'm not a huge fan of the genre. Kinda reminds me of Rompeprop. and I love me some Romp everyonce in a while. I'll definately check more of them out.

Yes it is too good. This band has always been one of my favorites from the Finnish scene.

Dont go past the demos/eps. Their 'death'n'roll' is complete horseshit, worse than that term itself.
Quote by Ultraussie
I want to try that while playing the opening riff to "Tempting Time".

0-0-0-13-0-0-0-0-13 or something like that alalalala but It;s so heavy and off time and awesome and you could not f**k anyone to it.

posting to remind myself to check them out. Best starting spot lads?

Swarming of the Maggots- basically reek of Putrefaction part 2
Above the Mind of Morbidity- more Carcass worship, but with more death metal in the mix
Fata Morgana- death metal with a sort of psychedelic atmosphere (it's better than it might sound)

...Obviously

Their demos and ep is some of the best grindcore ever played.

Sure, as is that wax cylinder EP recorded by the korean guy and his retarded dog from down the corner, yeah? We get it, you know every metal band in the world. Now start talking sense.

Above the Mind of Morbidity is stellar everywhere...the other EP is pretty twisted, and the demo is disgusting

Love it

But it really is great. And I found out about them last year without help from the forum FYI.

So yeah, anyway, Xysma is the greatest band of the 21st century because their demos and eps showcase ideas that I don't really understand but still talk about in an attempt to make myself look smart.
