Please tell us about the history of your band and its members
The band was founded in late November 2011. I (Daniel Reese) wanted to start a side project, apart from DARK LEGACY, to write my own music.
I started to write "Dagen då Kriget Kom" [the Day when War Came] and "Gryningstid" [Dawn Time] at an early stage. When I started writing, I wasn't shure about what kind of sound I was looking for. That became more clearly when I joined up with Daniel Tjernberg and read his awesome lyrics and heard his ideas.
Third in line to be written was "Bombräd" [Bombraid]. With that song and "Möte med döden" [Meeting with Death] I thought that the sound was pretty nailed from that point; A mix of heavy, easy and melodic metal with swedish lyrics.
How would you describe your style?
As I said before, metal that is heavy, easy and melodic. A core in the writing process is that the music can't be to complex.
Which bands influenced your music?
My influences music wise have been My dying bride, Katatonia, Opeth and Iron Maiden to name a few. Daniel writes orchestral music with his brother Mikael and doing soundtracks and experimental music, so he have those references basically, but within metal he listens much on bands like Unleashed, October tide, Hypocrisy, Edge of Sanity and more.
Why should a metalhead buy your albums?
Good question... To listen to something awsome. To get something that is a new sound but with an oldschool feel.
What have you released so far and how were your releases received by the public/media?
Jordevandring is our first release and hasn't been reviewed yet. It will be released on January the 27th.
Do you play live as well?
We would like to play live but the current state of the bad doesn't allow it. We're a few members short at the moment.
What plans do you have for the near future as a band?
We've just started to work on a second album and that's what I will focus on during the upcoming months, apart from the release of our first album.
Where can we listen to your band and where can we buy your stuff?
Jordevanring will be released digitally on Itunes, Spotify, Wimp and retailers like those in 27th of January. Until then you can check out the music video for the title track, "Jordevandring" [Earth Walk] on YouTube.
