Nirvana 2002

Nirvana 2002 was a Swedish death metal band active between 1988 and 1992. The band was originally called Prophet 2002, but decided to change its name to Nirvana.   However, it had to add the "2002" after seeing an advertisement for Nirvana's debut single, "Love Buzz/Big Cheese", released in October 1988.  Nirvana 2002 was notable for being part of the first-wave of the Swedish death metal movement, and is still considered to be one of the best examples of Swedish death metal.  Throughout its life the band only released demos and rehearsals, the majority of which were recorded at Stockholm's infamous Sunlight Studios.
