Get On This:

TRAIL OF MURDER full track listing and artwork for “Shades Of Art”

Bollnäs may only be a small town in Sweden, but it is already well known for its great Heavy Metal bands. Two of them in particular, Morgana Lefay and Tad Morose, have become as famous as many, with huge followings all over the world, but few would think the two bands would find a similar calling…..?

Not so…. After singer Urban Breed parted ways with Tad Morose in 2005, he and former band mate Daniel Olsson decided to start a new band. Not unusual in their home town, really… But, when Morgana Lefay drummer Pelle Åkerlind, who had already worked with Breed in other local band Bloodbound, was added to the line-up, the three-piece really started to gel and tremendous new songs began to take shape, with a debut album on the agenda.

Since they had a singer, a guitarist and a drummer, and all could play bass, the fledgling band didn’t involve any more members at first, and “Shades of Art” (as it later became known…) started to take shape. The songs pretty much wrote themselves, and in the fall of 2011, the guys were ready to enter The Black Lounge (with Jonas Kjellgren (Sonic Syndicate, Scar Symmetry) and the mix and production began.

Only once the record was finished did Trail Of Murder actually start to look for another guitarist and a bass player. Hasse Eismar (guitar), with whom Pelle had played previously, came first and rehearsals commenced, but when Hasse himself posted a teaser clip on his Facebook page, Johan Bergquist, a guy Hasse had done some gigs with before at home, came back and posted the now immortal phrase, “Get rid of the bass player—I want in!” Needless to say, everyone decided to give him a try, and halfway through the first song, it was obvious to all; they’d found their guy.

Now complete, Trail Of Murder are ready to get out there and kick some serious ass!


This is a real signing coup for Metal Heaven, so prepare for October 29th; this band is going to Rock!!
