Dutch death metal band Cremation was formed in 1991. The band recorded 4 demo's, one split ep and their full lenght debut album 'Retaliation' in 2002. Retaliation was recorded at Studio Excess in Rotterdam with Hans Pieters (Gorefest, Hail of Bullets etc). Cremation was heavily insdpired by the Flordia death metal scene, and especially by Death. But of course the Dutch way. Guitarplayer and vocalist Paul Baayens joined Thanatos, Asphyx and Hail of Bullets after Cremation split up. The 'Retaliation' re-issue comes with 8 bonus tracks from their demos, completely new booklet design and liner notes from Paul Baaijens.
