Nihilist (1987-1989): a Death Metal band from Stockholm, Sweden.


ormed in 1987 in Stockholm, Sweden Nihilist was the first band what played what would later be called the "Skogsberg Sound" and became one of the most influential death metal bands from Sweden, and after their split in 1989 the membership went off to form Dismember and Entombed.

Having first been influenced by the '80s hardcore and crossover bands, Nihilist were soon introduced to the likes of Death and Kreator; the cross-pollination of influences would soon breed its own virulent new hybrid strain as the so-called "Skogsberg Sound".

Over the years the line-up would feature Johnny Hedlund (guitar), Lars-Göran Petrov (vocals), Matthias Boström (vocals), Uffe Cederlund (guitar), Nicke Andersson (drums), Leif Cuzner (a.k.a. Leffe; guitar), Johnny Hedlund (guitar), Alex Hellid (guitar) and Lars-Göran Petrov (vocals) but they would manage to release only three demos in the form of Only Shreds Remain (1988), Premature Autopsy (1988) and Drowned (1989) before splitting. The Nihilist (1987-1989) compilation followed posthumously in 2005.
