While Festerday's debut album was released in 2019, their history dates back to their formation in 1989. They puttered around until 1992, releasing a few demos in the process, before putting the band to bed. Several of the members came together several years later and became ... And Oceans, an eclectic black metal band that lasted until 2005, at which time they morphed into the industrial-inspired Havoc Unit. That band, too, ran its course, and in 2013 Festerday was revived. The aforementioned debut, Iihtallan, goes straight for the jugular old-school death metal style, with grindy low-tuned guitars and gore-inspired lyrics (presumably a nod to Carcass, an influence and the source of their band name).
