Before the Swedish group Entombed were Entombed, group members Alex Hellid (guitar) and Nicke Andersson (drums) anchored the band Nihilist, with L.G. Petrov (vocals) and Uffe Cederlund (guitar) in and out of the band for a period of two years. Not even into their twenties yet, the group members recorded a series of demo tapes that were well-circulated around the burgeoning late '80s death metal underground, inspiring plenty of hype. After Hellid and Andersson broke up Nihilist, despite the acclaim, they soon re-formed a few months later as Entombed with Petrov and Cederlund as full-time members. The quartet then record the infamous But Life Goes On demo that landed them a deal with Earache, the then-monolithic U.K. label responsible for introducing the world to grindcore.
