Deadline (DLN, 1989-1993)
Deadline was originally a Norwegian group, which eventually developed a Finnish section that became more successful than the main group. The Norwegian members were coarrangers of one of the earliest editions of The Gathering. Later the Norwegian part of Deadline merged with main Gathering organizers Crusaders, and these Norwegian members probably went along: Freaky Angel (confirmed), Jellyfish (code), Mike (confirmed), Shady (confirmed), TDK.

- They cooperated with Crusaders on the invitation for The Gathering 92 [01/92], and coarranged the party with them in april. The finnish section was born by Mellow-D and Doc.X from Razkels in the spring. Nutcase, Roland and Visage joined from Eremation. They released several productions before the end of the year; "1st Intro" [08/92], "Mustro" [09/92], "Notelines" [fall/92], "Dentro" [10/92] and finally "Xmas Intro" [12/92]. By this time the Norwegian section had stopped releasing stuff altogether.
- The finnish division died in the spring of 93. Many members - at least Dionysos (code, fall/92-), Bad Karma (swap pack music), Nutcase (code gfx music, spring/92-) and Xendi (gfx swap, 08/92-) - joined Balance between june and october. Information that Bad Karma joined Atomic (old) seems to be incorrect. Sysop Roland ('SATISFICTION', ex Eremation) stayed independent until he closed his board in 95, and graphician Visage (ex Eremation, spring/92-) also decided to stay independent. Both have now returned to Amiga-scene in Mandel Bros in the year 2000! This group also features Nutcase.
- Finnish coder Lopez left the scene.
- Finnish coder Flashburn was kicked.
- Finnish musician Mellow-D bought a PC and left the Amiga scene 10/92. He joined Sonic PC sometime between 01 and 06/93.
- Finnish HQ, graphician and swapper Xendi (08-10/92) joined Balance.
- Finnish coder, graphician and musician Nutcase (02/92-) left 04/93 and stayed independent for two months, then joined Balance 06/93.
- Finnish swapper and packer Casket (old handle Tatu) joined Legend.
- Norwegian musician Jason joined Kefrens.
- Norwegian board 'THE PYRAMID' got busted.
- See Deadline/Reviews for personal reviews for these releases.
Born (1989, 07.08, ECS Demo)
- "Valeria Part 2" by n/a
- 20th in the Digitech - IBB Summer Conference '89 demo competition. This intro signalled the birth of the group, and the names behind the text in the intro was Tile and Jesus - so these two are probably the founders?
