My HeadBangers please welcome one of the best bands to come out of Gothenburg, Sweden, at least that is my opinion…..
This is from 2014 but it’s as if it were made for today. Now listen to that voice, I have heard a lot of great voices, but I have listened to Evergrey for years they are all over my iphone. I was listening this week and I have been upset over things going on in this world right now, as I’m sure you all know, I post exactly what I think all over my social medias. His voice draws me into the darkness where nothing exists but me following that voice. It is like finding fire on a freezing night. It warms me, it takes me to a place of calm, and I would follow it anywhere, anytime. Just to get it all straight with my HeadBangers there are voices and then there is the voice. Tom Englund is the voice that I would follow through hell. Now on for more…..
“King Of Errors”
This was just released February 24, 2022. They sound so damn good….
Nothing hotter than a band with long hair and leather jackets.
Now for some bio:
Evergrey was formed in 1995 in Gothenburg, Sweden as a progressive power metal band, in contrast to the melodic death metal that Gothenburg is known for. Since then, the band’s lyrics have always been of the darker sort, and the same can be said of the band’s imagery. The Dark Discovery was recorded in 1996 and released in 1998, and Solitude, Dominance, Tragedy was recorded and released in 1999. While those two albums dealt with a variety of ideas, many later albums have been concept albums, dealing with issues like paranoia and alien abduction in In Search of Truth 2001.
Like any band they’ve had members come and go, that’s just how it is. Evergrey has to date released 13 albums. They are here to stay and I am so glad they are. I love all different types of metal my HeadBangers know me, but sometimes you have to take some time away from the Thrash, Speed that I love so much. When the world is in so much conflict, Evergrey, is the band that took me a place and made me forget everything that is going on right now. I needed it so bad, I am one of those people that take things deep inside myself and I have to get it out, and just listening to that voice changed my whole day. I will remember the next time I have a bad day.
Let’s meet the band:
Tom S. Englund – Vocals, Guitar (1995-present)
