But I’ll be damned if this album isn’t pretty fucking sick for what it is, which is merely a compilation of demos from a death metal band who never got the opportunity to record a full-length. Nirvana 2002 apparently started out as Nirvana, until a certain grunge musician took that name from a British psychedelic band. The band eventually broke up without any full length material, and almost 2 decades later, we are left with this compilation, which is one of the few albums I ever bought as a random blind purchase

Nirvana 2002 were simply a Swedish death metal band, no frills added.
