EMBRACED (SWEDEN)


Embraced was formed in 1993 by guitarist Peter Mårdklint and vocalist Kalle Johansson. A few weeks later Michael Håkansson joined them on bass. They started out making music that was more in the vein of thrashmetal and continued doing that for about 2 years. During that time they made about 35 live appearances in the south of Sweden, Germany and Switzerland. But they felt that they wanted the music to progress into a more melodic form of metal and to be able to do that they knew that they had to do some line-up changes. In the middle of 1995 they got a new drummer ( Daniel Lindberg ) with an ambition to take the bands music to a higher level and they felt that they now had taken the first step in the progress of creating something new and unique. Later on that year they came in contact with a pianist ( Sven Karlsson ) and everything worked out great when they started to play together. They now knew that they were starting to make real progress in their strife on their new creation and their new strong material was taking form. In the summer of 1996 they changed their name to Embraced to show that they now were a new band performing different music. The fall of 1996 they spent in the rehearsal studio working on new material which later led to the recording of the demo " A journey into melancholy " in the spring of 1997. It was this demo that led to the contract with Regain Records. After the release of the demo embraced started to spread their name in the Swedish underground scene and the response on the demo was great, both in fanzines and by people and other bands. It was sold in about 450 copies. During the fall of 1997 they continued and ended the work on their debut album and in November that year they went to studio Fredman ( Gothenburg ) to record the album " Amorous Anathema ". The album was released on Regain Records in April 1998.
