FURBOWL was formed in 1991 when Johan Liiva left Carnage and hooked up with his old buddy Max Thornell on drums (both would form HEARSE in the 90’s). After a few demos FURBOWL recorded their debut album ‘Those Shredded Dreams’ in 1991, the album was produced by Carnage / Carcass guitar player and long time friend of the band, Michael Amott (ARCH ENEMY), Michael also played some leads on the album. (And not surprisingly Michael asked Johan to join Arch Enemy some years later).
This re-issue contains the legendary FURBOWL debut ‘Those Shredded Dreams’, plus 2 bonus video clips, and a bonus disc with 11 tracks the band recorded before and after their debut album. All in all, a true monument for the most underrated Swedish death metal band from the early 90’s! Re-mastered by Mike Wead (King Diamond / Mercyful Fate / Bibleblack). The album has new (cover) artwork and extensive liner notes from Johan, Max and Michael!
‘Death ‘N Roll before it was invented. Furbowl sure was an unique band, and I urge you all to seek out all of their recordings’ - Daniel Ekeroth, author of ‘Swedish Death Metal’.
