PAGANIZER started out as a four piece in late 1998 when Rogga and former drummer Jocke decided to start up a new band playing some old school Thrash/Death. Rogga and Jocke got in touch with some friends for guitar and bass playing (Dea and Diener) and recorded their first demo just a month later. That demo led to a deal with Malaysian label Psychic Scream Entertainment and PAGANIZER went on to record their debut CD "Deadbanger" which was released 1999.

However, PAGANIZER had lost their concept since Rogga was busy with other projects and didn´t write the music so the debut ended up being a bit too retro Thrash. During 2000 drummer Jocke left PAGANIZER due to a back injury and the band was more or less put on hold until Psychic Scream wanted another CD. Motivated once again Rogga got in touch with a drummer from another local band and in three weeks had written and recorded a new album. This time Rogga wrote 95% of the music again so the Death was put back in the Metal. After recording the CD Psychic Scream got into censorship trouble in Asia and the CD was delayed. PAGANIZER decided to search for another label with the consent of Psychic Scream. The search ended when PAGANIZER was introduced to Forever Underground Records.

Now with a secure line-up and a new record label PAGANIZER´s second album "Promoting Total Death" was unleashed on June 26th, 2001. PAGANIZER began writing new material for another full length almost immediately after the release of "Promoting Total Death". From July 2001 to April 2002 PAGANIZER wrote new material and refined their sound aswell as added a fourth member to the band. With the addition of a fourth man PAGANIZER´s sound became more complex, more full and more brutal. The band´s third release "Dead Unburied", was recorded at renowned Sunlight Studio and released in summer 2002 again through Forever Underground. This album shattered all their previous material and earned them much needed attention from the underground leading them to a deal with the newly created label XTREEM MUSIC (ex-REPULSE Rec.) for the release of their 4th opus.

PAGANIZER-Mastermind Rogga hat mit "Scandinvian Warmachine" ein feines Album rausgebracht, das old schooliger und schwedischer kaum sein kann. Grund genug, den Tausendsassa mal auf die Pelle zu rücken und nach dem Stand der Dinge zu befragen.


Carnage Junkie - Cover
PAGANIZER-Mastermind Rogga gehört zu den Leuten, die entweder zuviel Zeit haben oder extrem fix im Studio sind, anders sind seine regelmäßigen Veröffentlichungen nicht zu erklären – nach DEMIURG
Into The Catacombs - Cover
PAGANIZER mal wieder. Nix Neues aus dem Hause Johansson, was sich aber in diesem Leben nicht mehr ändern wird. 13 Songs schwedischen Death Metals gibt es diesmal, nichts anderes war zu erwarten.
Murder Death Kill - Cover
PAGANIZER. Der Name steht für kompromisslosen Old School Death Metal. Einfach, roh, brutal. So wie Schwedentod sein muss. Keine versteckten Power Metal-Riffs, kein cleaner Gesang, nix da!
No Divine Rapture - Cover
Alle Jahre wieder kommen PAGANIZER mit einem vorzüglichen Album um die Ecke, so auch dieses Jahr.
