David Henriksson Date of birth: 1977

I started my carrier as a metalsinger in the band Deepsea from Bjurholm.At the time I was fourteen years old, and heavy metal was the best.
When I went to college, were I studied music, I sang in two bands.
Their biggest influense was bands such as Black Sabbath and Led
Zeppelin.
After that I became leadsinger in a band called Crimson, and we played good old rock´n roll in Bars and Restaurants..

In 1996 I met a girl from Uppsala. So in -97 i gathered my belongings and moved to Stockholm. I started singing in the band Insania, who had been searching for a vocalist for quite some time. A few month later we had a record deal. During my 4 years in Stockholm I participated on two records with Insania; World of ice -99 and Sunrise in riverland -01.
One of the greatest moments with Insania was when we opened up for Saxon at Klubben in Stockholm in 2001.
In the beginning of 2002, life changed enormously for me. During a major depression I decided to leave Insania and Stockholm for my hometown in the north of Sweden, never knowing if i ever was going to sing in a metalband again.
After living up north for a while i decided to start playing as a Troubdur, so i needed someone to help me record a few songs. I got in touch with Marcus, who i knew slightly since my highschool years. After recording a few times, we decided to start writing our own material.
And here we are three years later, after getting my life back together, gotten married and had a son, We´re finally ready to release our first album –Evil Days.

Magnus Öberg Date of birth: 1973

Instrument: Bass and backing vocals

Born in the early seventies up in the northern woods and raised to the sound of Abba

and Beatles. I started playing electric guitar in school and started a band with Marcus

Elisson called RAMM. The bassplayer quited and we couldn’t find a new one so I

started playing bass instead of guitar. My first bassheroes was Steve Harris, Geezer

Butler, Neil Murray and Paul McCartney. As I grew older I started to listen to more

diverse music and began to love Jaco Pastorius and Stanley Clarke too.

My biggest influence right now is Francis Rocco Prestia of Tower Of Power, he’s the king

of bass! I’ve lots of basses through the years but now I have found the holy grail, it’s

a Fender Jazzbass -70 Candy Apple Red that sounds like heaven!

I have never played on a better bass so I’ll keep this forever! My main amp is a

Marshall and I use Hartke cabinets, no pedals, just growl…

I have always loved music and it’s a big part of my life, can’t live without it. Great

concerts I have been to: Black Sabbath -91, Eagles -02, Toto -08.

I’m addicted to pizza and I like red wine too…  Favourite movie is The Shining by

Stanley Kubrick.

I have played with lots and lots of people through the years and I’ve met some cool

people on the way!

Some of the people I’ve played with: Brolle Jr, Daniel Lindström, Fredrik Fagerlund,

Carolina Miskovsky, Erica Baxter, Mickael Hujanen.

I’m studying to be a dentist and i live in Umeå with my girlfriend Zahra.
