Germany's CREMATORY released their debut album, Transmigration, on this day in 1993.
When we started this band off, we never imagined that we would even get this far. When we recorded our first album nobody really believed in what we were doing. But we had seen some success, some fans really liked what we were doing, so we kept going and recorded another album. We took this band further than any of us imagined we would have.
- Harald Heine / Crematory interview, Chronicles of Chaos, 2001
Transmigration was the first of several releases - at least an album a year - until their brief split in 2001. The band returned in 2004 and have since released six albums with a seventh, Oblivion, out next week.
