It all began in 1993. Being influenced by the Napalm Death, Cannibal Corpse, Morbid Angel, Pungent Stench, Disharmonic Orchestra, Atrocity, Righteous Pigs etc., Beerdegungs Lauten decided to play brutal, very unusual music for Armenia. Doom & Festerdead were previously involved in the thrash metal band called Demon Spirit. One can describe them as an armenian copy of Slayer. After some abortive attempts to play more brutal music, they made a decision to leave Demon Spirit and make their own band. So, they started searching for other members. The metal scene was actually rising in Armenia in early 90s and there were a lot of metalheads that wanted to be involved in a metal band, but it turned out that nobody wants to play grind core/death-metal. Finding a rehearsal room was also a pain in the ass, because in those years Armenia was in very bad condition - no electricity, state of war, etc. But those things couldn't stop Doom & Festerdead to at least go on making their music at home without drums and trying to find a bass player. Finding the second guitar player was quite difficult too, but that worried them less. Soon Timur joined the band as a second guitar player. He was also addicted to death metal, but his stay in the band wasn't long. Then the idea was born to invite Dowen to play bass. Dowen and Festerdead were playing together before in the short-term project "Aggel". The next step was the rehearsal room. A small room was rented at the scientific institution (Armgiprodor), which was outside of Yerevan (it took an hour and a half to get there). That was the autumn of 1993. The winter was dead period, because of no electricity, no transportation and a bunch of snow. The spring '94 came with an excellent offer. The other armenian band Dumbarton Oaks had a rehearsal room in Yerevan, but without recording equipment. Beerdigungs Lauten solved the problem with the equipment and the two bands started sharing the rehearsal room together.
