The last few years ECLIPSE has played sold out shows all over the world including runs in Japan, Australia and America as well as extensive touring across Europe. In addition to their own shows they’ve played the major festivals such as Wacken, Sweden Rock and Barcelona Rockfest (three years consecutively!). Their relentless work has paid off and with their latest studio release Paradigm the band’s audience has grown significantly in both size and diversity. The single Viva La Victoria has been streamed over 15 million times to date and before everything came to a grinding covid halt the band had tours and festivals lined up for the rest of 2020 and 2021.
The band is much loved for its distinctive and eccentric style of music that already left a deep impression on us in 1989 when the debut album "Funk – O Metal Carpet Ride" was released.
Now the Electric Boys are up to date again with their seventh album "Ups!de Down" where they continue to develop their unique fusion of musical styles to make something of their very, very own sound.
The band, which was formed since 1987, made a strong impression early on as pioneers in Swedish black and death metal, within those with the third album "Clouds" (1992) and Grammy-nominated "Wildhoney" (1994) became even more style-forming in the dark rock genres. More information soon.
Velvet Insane rose from the ashes of the bands founder and guitarist Jesper Lindgren’s short-lived and intense career and with the death of a famous Swedish manager who tragically passed away at Nottingham Rock City. Distraught at his death but determined not to quit, Jesper decided to invest everything he had in a new musical direction. With passion for big choruses, melodies and riffs Jesper wrote and recorded demos of songs for a band that, in his eyes would be bigger than life itself. Like a bolt from the blue, Jesper came up with the band name “Velvet In Sane” (now Velvet Insane) during a day at work in the summer of 2013.
