Swedish metallic outfit Embraced was originally made up of guitarist Peter Mårdklint, vocalist Kalle Johansson, and bassist Michael Håkansson. Functioning within the guidelines of thrash, the music group eventually shifted toward a far more melodic audio, affected by thrash, loss of life, and the people’ fascination with traditional music. Drummer Daniel Lindberg became a member of in 1995, as do keyboardist Sven Karlsson. The addition of Karlsson allowed the music group to increase its sound substantially, adding synthesized flutes, strings, and choir results to the blend. Embraced documented the Trip Into Melancholy demonstration in 1997; it resulted in a agreement with Swedish metallic label Regain. Embraced performed throughout Sweden, Finland, as well as the metallic haven of Germany, but ultimately realized that efficiently showing their grandiose audio live with only 1 keyboardist was difficult. Embraced didn’t consider multi-tracking a choice, as the purity from the group’s live audio was vitally important. Rather, they added second keyboardist Julius Chmielewski towards the lineup in 1997, with extra guitarist Devor Tepic becoming a member of soon after. Right now seven rockers solid, Embraced joined the studio room to record their debut full-length. Amorous Anathema premiered through Regain in Apr of 1998. At this time Lindberg made a decision to keep the music group; he was changed with Andres Albin. But Albin’s tenure behind the package was short-lived, providing method to Thomas Lejon after just four months. Following this video game of musical seats was over, Embraced started to record its sophomore launch, which found its way to November of 2000. Regrettably, Within was the band’s swan track, as disagreements over path — not forgetting personal musical preferences — tore Embraced aside. Within premiered posthumously in Japan; it presented an added bonus cover edition of Alphaville’s “Big In Japan,” aswell as “Publication of Keys,” an Embraced initial. Michael Håkansson continued to execute with Evergrey as well as the Forsaken, while Kalle Johansson began the hard rock-band Burning Motors. Lejon became a member of the Swedish prog-metalurgists Andromeda.
