Accession is a Finnish-based, originally Amiga (later console and pc) demo and cracking group. They were formed in late july 1988 by Evil, Moku and XYZ from the former Amiga section of Finnish Gold. DDT was main organizer until his passing in 2019. Their first production was Carrier Command at the Byterapers Grendelparty 1988 in august.
Cracker Journal 16 (october 1989) reported, "Scoopex Finland is born. They are some Accession members, the authors of Heavymania..."
The adverts section of Cracker Journal 18 featured a note, saying "In the last two CJ's there have been two ads from some guys who have claimed to be members of Accession. They are NOT members! Only swappers of us are Adept and Hawkwind!" and it further featured a contact address in Heinävesi, Finland. The advertisements in question was likely one pointing to a PLK in Stuttgart, Germany from CJ16, and an ad for Cobra in CJ17.
