Midnight Sun

Sweden’s Midnight Sunlight released four albums between 1997 and 2001 that epitomized the greater business wing of Euro power metal, at the mercy of the impact of American hard rock and roll and also AOR sometimes. But Midnight Sun’s incessant problems with musician turnover eventually spelled their loss of life, a long time before they will make a name for themselves beyond their Scandinavian backyard. Originally founded in 1996 by Norwegian-born vocalist Pete Sandberg, guitarist Chris Hand, bassist Jonas Reingold, and drummer Anders Theander, Midnight Sunlight were nothing otherwise prolific, though, liberating their 1st three albums in quick succession despite these myriad staff adjustments. For the record: following the aforementioned quartet’s saving of 1997’s Another Globe, 1998’s Above & Beyond presented journeyman drummer Hempo Hilden, and 1999’s Nemesis presented fresh guitarist Magnus Karlsson yet another percussionist in Jaime Salazar. After that, although the second option set and bassist Reingold would stay place for 2001’s Metallic Machine LP, it had been now vocalist Pete Sandberg’s consider jump dispatch, a move that Midnight Sunlight would ultimately not really recover from; regardless of the valiant attempts of his able substitute, Jacob Samuels, the group dropped apart only a short time later on. All the musicians continued to utilize other name rings — especially Sandberg, who later on became a member of German supergroup Primal Dread.
