  • Cocky title, I know! But it'a actually true!

    I'm currently doing the final layout on the new, third, encyclopedia of Swedish hard rock/metal. This time we are talking 900 pages, over 3 000 bands, all colour!
    I've found so much cool information on lots of the obscure old 80s bands, plus, of course the newer stuff. I've also added lots of bands I missed out on before.

    I think I've managed to include all (well... you can never be sure, can you?) the missing goodies. Of course, I've scanned covers, there's a members' index, map, and all the info you need. This time I'm also including a bonus CD with great bands (some with well known members) that never made it on record.

    There is however one band I still haven't heard myself, and the 7" seems impossible to find. Any help would be highly appreciated. The band is Double Deuce: "Soldier In The Sun" (1992).

    I've also seen something about a single with a band called Thunder - "Tyrant's Castle". This is not the same band that released "Party".

    Well, any comments, suggestions etc are always appreciated!

    Hmmm does that 'Tyran't Castle' single really exist? is The Corroseum the only source or is it mentioned somewhere else?

    The last line of the Corroseum's review of Thunder's "Party" is "Let's pray for an even rarer '85 debut hiding out there, hopefully with titles like "Tyrant's Castle", "The Night of the Sacrifice" and the likes." It seems pretty clear to me he was just hoping that they had an older heavy single, not implying that it actually exists.

    That's what I thought too. I think a single with that title would have been made public long time ago if it really existed.

    3000 bands???

    Well, this is an amazing project. Many thanks to the guys who made the job. It seems that Sweden has many heavy metal bands if you keep in mind that its population is about 9.5 - 10 million.

    Will it be available for download?
