Swordmaster History:
In the summer of 1993 a band called Swordmaster was formed during a wild metal party in Gothenburg, Sweden. After the usual line-up problems they signed a deal with Florida based label Full Moon Productions and recorded their mini album "Wraths Of Time" in the spring of 1995.

In 1996 they signed a new deal with the French label Osmose Productions.
In January 2000 the band played a show at Kafé 44 in Stockholm together with Merciless where they gained attention from the label LED Recordings (Hellacopters a.o.), a label backed up by Universal.

The band signed a new deal and changed musical direction completely, from brutal black / death metal to a black form of industrial metal.
They also changed their name to Deathstars.

The drummer Nicklas Rudolfsson didn't want to take part in this and therefore left the sticks to former Dissection batterist Ole Öhman.
