CORPORAL PUNISHMENT went through the familiar schedule of gigging and demoing before scoring a deal with local label Spinefarm Records for the 1992 'Profaned Relics' album. The band, comprising former BRAINWASH vocalist / bassist Ali, ex-AIRDASH and GLOOMY GRIM drummer Ykä (a.k.a. Agathon Frosteus) and the OPPRESSION and DIRTY DAMAGE credited guitarist Lare Nieminen, issued two demos and a self financed 7" single before their deal. Nieminen sessioned bass guitar on SACRAMENT's 1992 demo 'Judgement Day'. Second guitarist Markku Niiranen has ties to STONE and AIRDASH.
