Bio
The band Spinal Cord originates from the town Busko Zdroj (Poland). Their music and style, which was inspired at first by world famous death/thrash metal bands, slowly evolved and became the band’s own unique style. Spinal Cord began to work on their first three-track promotional demo entitled “A.D.2000″ in Lublin’s Hendrix Studio in April 2000. At the same time, the band had the opportunity to play their first big concert during Behemoth’s Millenium Tour 2000. Spinal Cord played next to bands like Behemoth, Devilyn, and Nomad. In early June, Spinal Cord supported VADER during their live show in Lublin. The recording session for “A.D.2000” was  followed by  two concerts with a Czech band Pandemia and then by another gig in Rzeszow alongside Trauma, Decapitated, and Astarot. In 2001 and 2002 the band was working on the material that was to be included on their full-length album. The recording session took place in November and December 2002 at the Screw Factory Studio in Debica. Its fruits, 11 tracks and an intro, gained an interest of the label  Empire Records. The debut album, entitled “Remedy”, was released on the 25th of May 2003. Throughout 2003 and 2004 the band was busy making lots of live appearances. In 2004 a few important changes occurred, the change of the bass player being the most important one. Novy, well known for his work with Vader and Dies Irae, joined Spinal Cord. In March 2004 the band played a very successful set at the prestigious Metalmania festival. In August, American label CRASH Music Inc. released SPINAL CORD’s debut album “Remedy”. Soon after that, the band started to work on their subsequent album. Today, we can hear the result of that work.
