This band started out in Gothenburg by Feffe and Matte in late 2008 as a two piece who wrote a few songs together that were influenced by some of their favorite bands like: The Melvins, Black Sabbath, The Jesus Lizard and Poison Idea. But t wasn’t until early 2009 when the two-piece grew in to being a four-piece when Ulf and Peter joined the line up, and gig requests started dropping in.

And from then, the band released one album, three 7” vinyl singles and done a good number of live shows. In May 2010 they released their self entitled debut album. The album has received several positive reviews and ended up in the absolute top of the Swedish review charts of 2010 with an average of 4.2 out of 5.

In March 2012 their bass player Ulf Lundén decided to leave the band and was replaced by Jonas Rydberg. And now this band is released their second album at the end of August.

And I just have to say that these chaps surprised me with this record. It has so many layers that they do a wonderful job at creating different moods. One time you will be listening to a good solid hard rock song and later on you have these awesome atmospheric songs like Dark Tranquility makes. And every one of them sounds so different and original.
