Group History (part 1)

Kefrens was a Danish demo group, originally founded by Razmo, Metallion and Mellica in 1987 under the name The Starlight Project (TSP). In 1988, they changed their name to Kefrens.

When Kefrens died, danish coder Promax (Rune Gram-Madsen, ex Atomic Team) left the demo scene to work on his assembler ASM-One...and today ASM-One is the most used assemblers among demo coders! Also Metallion had some utility projects; his IFF Converter was widely used among demo coders at the time.

1988
Razmo contributed music to Freedom Force's "Demo 2" [10/88] in October.
1989
At least three megademos were released by the group this year, from number 5 (February) to number 7 (September)! This is undoubtedly a record, and one that will remain for all time.


  • Kefrens died. R.W.O (1st group), S.L.L (ex Bamiga Sector One, both new 02/90) and Seen joined Rebels. However, after 14 days they both left and formed Hydronic together with 4 other ex-Kefrens guys. Then, of course, Hydronic became the new Kefrens. I believe Razmo may have spent some time in Genozide also. Danes Icronite (old handle Burger) and Milkshake (both ex Atomic Intelligence) joined Rebels, but immediately moved on to Anarchy. Deflex joined Arcane. Toxic founded his own little crew; Serious Soft. Neon changed his handle to Hitman and joined Dexion.
  • Danish members Detron (code, 09/89), Jaeger (swap), Metallion (code, 09-11/89) and Nightlight (music, ex Atomic Team) remain groupless after the split.
  • Danes Maestro (music, 12/92), Orion (code) and Slash (gfx, ex Daniax, new 12/90) all left to join Flash Productions. This trio was largely responsible for the demo 'THE WALL' (12/90). Maestro later returned to the new Kefrens.
  • Original founder and coder Mellica was kicked mid 90.
  • Danish coders Gizwiz (ex Bounty) and Murphy joined Crionics 06/90.

The second incarnation of Kefrens was born in the last months of 1991 by a.o. S.L.L and R.W.O from the old Kefrens.

1991
Danish swapper Hawkeye/Static Bytes joined the group in December.
1992
Danish musician Maestro (ex Flash Productions) joined Anarchy, while the group's Norwegian board 'THE PYRAMID' was kicked out around January.
1994
Dane Mellica (Kim Byrresen) left the scene. Danish graphician Blizzart joined Passion. Danish graphician R.W.O (ex Hydronic) joined Balance late this year. Danish multitalent Airwalk (ex Rednex old, new early92-04/93) formed Polka Brothers. Pretty soon, Dice (music, ex Upfront), Vention (code, 12/91), Laxity (code music) and Zinko (ex Majic 12, new 07/93) all teamed up late 94.

  • Danish musician S.L.L (Steen L. Larsen, ex Hydronic) left the scene to work with real music in his own studio.
  • Swedish sysop Princip ('INTERCHANGE', ex Crystal) was kicked, since Kefrens decided they only wanted Danish members. He moved on to Ministry.
  • Danish coder Kelic got kicked.
  • Danish sysop Krueger ('PYRAMID INN', ex Awesome, 12/91) joined Spaceballs, but it's still a Kefrens board.
