On their debut "A Serenade of Agony", recorded at Redhouse Studio, Odense, Denmark, 6th-10th of September 1991, Dan Swanö did the vocals using his famous psedonym Day Disyraah. Swanö and Hansen left the band after the cd was released, and then Maceration started changing music style towards groove and hardcore. Maceration made one more demotape in 1995 playing that style, before they split up. Some members continued playing together in the hardcore band Self, that made one cd 'The Sinister Urge' in the late 90'es. The album was originally released by Danish label Progress Red Labels.
