Country of origin: Norway
Formed in: 2003
Genre: Brutal Death Metal
The Sickening was founded by guitarist Markspist (ex-Slagmark) & drummer Beist (ex-Slagmark, ex- Blood Red Throne).They got some other members to complete the band: Stig Hansen (Violated, ex-Slagmark), Hans Wik (Violated) & Ola Langli (Cleaver, ex-Panzerskrekk). But due to other commitments, this line-up did not stay alive.
– Over the next few years, more dedication was put into this project and it was decided by Beist & Markspist that once again they wanted to make The Sickening into a full-time band.
