Eucharist was a Swedishmarker melodic death metal band which released two albums in the 1990s.


Eucharist's first album, 1993's A Velvet Creation, featured Markus Johnsson (vocals, guitar), Thomas Einarsson (guitar), Tobias Gustafsson (bass), and Daniel Erlandsson (drums), while the second, 1997's Mirrorworlds, saw them reduced to the trio of Johnsson, Erlandsson, and bassist Martin Karlsson. One of numerous groups with a hand in establishing the very melodic style now known as the Gothenburgmarker Sound, Eucharist didn't fare particularly well in the face of the era's stiff competition, resulting in personnel eventually joining rival bands. Most notably, original bassist Gustaffsson wound up with the power metal band Armageddon, and drummer Erlandsson did time in Gothenburg scene leaders In Flames before settling in permanently with Arch Enemy.

Eucharist was founded in Veddige, a small city about 40 km from Gothenburgmarker, Swedenmarker sometime around 1989. A demo which was released in 1992 became a classic in the metal underground. It was titled Greeting Immortality. The same year, Obscure Plasma Records released the Greeting Immortality 7" (without consent of the band), and in 1993 the band recorded a song named "The View" for a Deaf Records (Peaceville Records) compilation album called Deaf Metal Sampler. Afterwards, the band suddenly split up.

But soon after, Wrong Again Records asked them to re-unite and sign a deal, which they also did. Eucharist entered the studio and recorded their debut album A Velvet Creation, which was released in 1993, but the cover was somewhat misprinted in the wrong color. In the summer of 1994, two songs, "Wounded and Alone" and "The Predictable End" were recorded for a compilation album released by Wrong Again Records entitled, W.A.R. Compilation vol 1, released in 1995.

Eucharist split up again and some members started playing in other bands. Daniel for example did the drums on two tracks on In Flames' EP Subterranean. In 1996, Marcus and Daniel started working with Eucharist again and they were instantly offered a deal by WAR Music (a new label risen from the ashes of Wrong Again Records) and the album, Mirrorworlds, released in 1997 was the result. But again, after a short tour in early 1998, Eucharist split up.

In 2001, A Velvet Creation was re-released on Regain Records on both CD and vinyl. This time remastered, and with the two songs from the W.A.R. Compilation session as bonus tracks. The cover was also printed in the correct color, but this time Markus Johnsson's name was misprinted as Marcus Johansson.
