Nirvana 2002 was a swedish death metal band formed in 1988 in Edsbyn, Sweden. The Nirvana 2002 monicker came from two earlier names of the project: The first was Prophet 2002, then changed to Nirvana. A little bit later the band from Seattle called Nirvana released its 1st 7”EP on SubPop, so they added the previous suffix 2002: this was long before most people had heard of Nirvana and Kurt Cobain. They appeared on the legendary CBR compilation Projections of a Stained Mind with the track “Mourning”. In 1992 the band had some offers for an album by Deaf and Necrosis Records, but then they took different ways and split-up; In 2001 a CD with all their material was close to being released by Relapse, but nothing happened. On 26 jan 2007 they played their 1st gig ever in the release party of the Swedish Death Metal book. Erik couldn’t be there and he’s been replaced by the old friend of the band Robert Eriksson of The Hellacopters. In 2009 the “Recordings 89-91” CD was finally released through Relapse. In 2010 Erik Wallin from Merciless joined the band as second guitar for some live shows.
