Beaten To Death as you know it today was created in 2010. However, Bartender, Martin and I actually started the band back in 2006. We didn't know what we wanted to do besides play angry and fast. We wanted to mix melodies with blast beats. Other than that we didn't know what tuning, guitar sound or lineup would be.

We had made about a dozen songs and we recorded these two for a compilation album onto which we eventually didn't end up. The project was put on ice shortly after. Since then the recording has just been collecting dust in the archive.

You will probably recognise these songs in slightly different shapes on our debut album, Xes And Strokes. Most of the other songs we made back in 2006 have been picked apart and ended up in different songs over the years.

The demo was step recorded in our old rehearsal space in Steners gate in Oslo, Norway, not live as we do it today. We mixed it in a proper studio, also unlike today.

Of course this is just a demo and it doesn't really resemble what we sound like today, but there's something about the dark vibe on this recording that I really appreciate. Hope you do too.
