Set in Malta, an island, in the middle of the Mediterranean sea, the quintet stood firm, against all the odds, and confrontations such an environment generated.
Beheaded toughened after each clash, and molded into a beast of tenacity and inhuman determination. The first years of existence were plagued with line up shifts, something which persisted till The Demo was being sent to countless underground zines, radio stations, distros and tape traders all over the globe.
It was being made to circulate through all means possible and available at the time. Beheaded started to get a great feedback from the underground scene and a solid contact with the scene outside Maltese shores started taking shape. The first official full length was recorded at Temple Studios in June What Ive Got (Groove Syndicate Remix) - Various - XTC Trax 6 Unforeseen hindrances determined that the CD saw its release in early !
Summer also saw the band embark for the first time outside Maltese shores to play shows in Czech Republic, Slovakia, and Germany. On return from the tour, Beheaded was conscious more than ever that it had potential to rip it up with the big names in the scene.
New material started to outline a more brutal and heavy approach in the songs. Having terminated the deal with X-Treme, the band recorded a 5 track promo CD in The 5 tracks on the promo captured the attention of several record labels. However, the band opted to sign with Danish Label Mighty Music.
Such release left its indelible mark in the brutal underground scene and was again praised in countless publications. The new songs also went down extremely well during live performances. Enter The tour furnished the band with lots of new contacts. Positive reviews cropped up from every where in every country, and countless of interviews were done in numerous underground publications. April and May was the time when the first US tour took place. Such tour included over 20 shows and boasted appearances at the Ohio Deathfest and New Jersey Metal Meltdown, where the band shared the stage with the elite bands of the genre.
On the return from the FTC festival, and in between late and midBeheaded was confronted with a series of unexpected situations, including line up replacements. The band tore its way through it all and ripped to pieces everything that crossed its path. Loaded with an arsenal of riffs, new top notch material started being written. The band decided to terminate the record deal with Mighty Music, and look for better conditions with another label.
With this in mind a new 2 track Promo CD was recorded. The promo disc captured the attention of Unique Leader Records, a highly reputable label within the international brutal War in Iraq - The George W. Bush Singers - Songs in the Key of W scene.
