Swedish death metal combo Eucharist released two mid-'90s albums. The first, 1994's A Velvet Creation, featured Markus Johnsson (vocals, guitar), Thomas Einarsson (guitar), Tobias Gustafsson (bass), and Daniel Erlandsson (drums), while the second, 1997's Mirrorworlds, saw them reduced to the trio of Johnsson, Erlandsson, and bassist Martin Karlsson. One of numerous groups with a hand in establishing the very melodic style now known as the Gothenburg Sound, Eucharist didn't fare particularly well in the face of the era's stiff competition, and the result was that its personnel was eventually cannibalized by its rivals. Most notably, original bassist Gustaffsson wound up in thrashers Armageddon, and drummer Erlandsson did time in Gothenburg scene leaders In Flames before settling in more permanently with Arch Enemy.
