Frontiers Music Srl has signed another new band from Sweden, Fans of the Dark. The band was formed in the summer of 2020 with an intention to mix the melodies and approach of classic and melodic rock with elements of the great metal music of the ’80s.

“I had written an album basically on my own during the pandemic,” says Freddie Allen, drummer and main songwriter. ”But I had Alex [Falk] in mind all the time and I knew that he wanted to do this. His voice is just an absolute monster and I thought it would be interesting to hear that voice singing on top of some really great songs driven by guitars, bass, and drums. That was the start of it.” 

The last two pieces of the puzzle to complete the band’s lineup were Robert Majd (Captain Black Beard, Metalite, Nighthawk) who came in on bass and Oscar Bromvall (Palace, Code Red) on guitar. Mixing and mastering was handled by Mike Palace (Palace, Kent Hilli).

“Now, all we want to do is record more albums and in the future play these songs in front of a live audience and really put on a show,” says Freddie. “I have confidence in the material, and in our abilities as songwriters and performers. 2020 was the worst year in the recent human history, 2021 has already been a lot more hopeful, and I know that 2022 is going to be even better. So, bring it on!”
