which was not officially distributed. Then the band played several gigs
together with some local bands in Slovakia.
The second demo "In Embrance Of The Dying" was recorded in 2 days, in March
1993 in Trencin. This demo raised a great interest in the band in the home
underground scene and DEPRESY began to be counted as a member of the Slovak
death metal elite. The demo received positive reviews in several zines in
Slovakia as well as abroad and some songs were presented on compilations.
The band also played about 20 gigs in Slovakia and Czech Republic. The band
has sold approximately 500 copies of this demo till now. In this period the
members of the band began to change their opinions about life and philosophy
and started to focus on the philosophy of darkness and magic.
In March 1994 the band recorded two tracks "Try Not To Breathe" and "Without
Future" at Exponent studio (Slovakia) for a compilation "Wretched People In
The Real World" (Metal Age prod.). They belong to the best of what can be
heard on this compilation. The song "Try Not To Breathe" was then also
released on a CD compilation "Death Metal Made In Slovakia" (Station Master
In August 1995 the band visited Exponent studio again to materialize its
imagination of suffering and pain. The recording took 5 days and the result

The band sold complete first circulation of 400 cassettes on the territory
of Slovakia. This demo is entitled "...And There Came The Tears With Christ"
and got great reviews again and the interest of fans grew up. Therefore the
cassette was re-released in summer 1997 by Shindy prod. in circulation of
1200 pieces. More than 1500 copies of this demo have been sold till now and
it is still spread.
Two songs from "...And There Came The Tears With Christ" demo were released
on compilation CD of Rock Extremum magazine (the most famous metal mag with
