Stockholm is built on 14 islands that are linked by 53 bridges. Linked together and often in musical harmony is the city’s many bands. One of these bands are Desolator that was originally going in a doom/death direction, but changed into an old school death metal band after some full band rehearsals. After many long and hard considerations, the name Desolator was approved.
Desolator’s debut EP Spawn Of Misanthropy is now re-issued. Therefore, Spawn Of Misanthropy now gets much better distribution and many more get the opportunity to hear their music. The then unnamed Desolator was formed in early 2009 when guitarist and vocalist Joakim Rudemyr and bassist Jonas Bergkvist started jamming in Sollentuna, Stockholm. After a few rehearsals the guitarist and vocalist Stefan Nordström joined in. The band played its first gig October 16th 2009 at China Station, Haninge/Stockholm. In 2012 the drummer Victor Parri joined the band.
