Q: When was Dementor formed and give us some info about all your releases till now?

A: Dementor is one of the oldest active Slovak extreme bands. The band arose in 1988 like three members band. I joined the band in 1991 and we started to work hard on the progress of our musical expression. The first official recording was the demo tape called “The extinction of Christianity” ’92. This stuff contains 9 tracks of fast more technical death metal influenced by Pestilence, Death, Slayer and Celtic Frost. It was sung in Slovak language.

RESILIENT – The Art Of Resilience EP

Released October 2021

The Chilean's EP begins with an exotic intro Sepultura type "the Abyss" where it somehow testifies their Latin American origin. One of those things that relaxes you before the attack.

The EP is released by Diabolical Summoning Records on CD and StumpGrinder on cassette.
