What are your names? Who plays what?
Jakob "Jacke" Sandberg – vocals
Thomas Berg – guitars
Anders Haga – bass
Peter Haga – drums/keyboard
Where are you from? The band is from Fagersta, Sweden.
What's your style of genre? Melodic hard rock/heavy metal.
What are your songs about?
The lyrics on the album are inspired by isolated personal events or historical events.
Some of them are deliberately positive, and some of them deliberately negative,
to make the album have both “light” and “dark” perspectives
The framework for the songs had been done for a long time when vocalist Jakob Sandberg joined the band.
The writing process was at this point basically trying to make the lyrics and melody fit the already existing songs,
and we adjusted them accordingly to fit the lyrics and vice versa.
Who does the composing and writes the lyrics? For the latest album "A light in the dark" Peter and Anders have written the music and Jacke has done all the lyrics and vocal melodies and harmonies.
Have you done any covers live? Yes, we've played songs by Yngwie, Mr. Big, Iron Maiden, Talisman etc.
What was your latest gig? We had the release party for the new album here in our home town.
When did you start to sell merchandise, and what do you have for sale? We've always had merch and we sell t-shirts, keychains, posters etc...
