    Janne and Pelle played together in different bands since childhood. Their most well-known band being OVERDRIVE, with whom they recorded one 12" EP and two albums before splitting up in June 1985. Janne and Pelle (who was then lead singer but after their split-up, switched over to playing bass) decided to carry on and form a new band. In December 1985 they were accompanied by drummer Paul Gustavsson who had just left the band HIGH VOLTAGE. His claim-to-fame is two recordings with heavy rockers MERCY with one 12" EP and LP. The band now had a complete rhythm section and also a new name: OVERHEAT. They now started rehearsing and writing material and in November 1986 (when the band was completed with a singer) they had already written almost 30 songs! The singers name is: Gernot Iverson and he is, like Paul also an ex-HIGH VOLTAGE member. Now the band was complete and in May-June 1987 they recorded their first demo Vol. 1, which was produced, arranged, mixed, engineered, recorded and performed by the band. This demo has the songs: "Fight to the Finish", "Realm of Freedom", "L.J.M.S.", "I Do Believe and High On You". It was recorded in a barn with a four-track Tascam porta studio. The songs are mostly written by Janne Stark and arranged by the band. This limited tape was not sent out to very many Metal Fanzines (if any).
