Dark Tranquility


B

y blending melodic guitar harmonies with brutal death metal riffing, Dark Tranquillity is acknowledged as one of the founders of the style of death metal often referred incorrectly as "Gothenburg". Mikael Stanne (vocals), Niklas Sundin (guitar), Martin Henriksson (bass), Anders Jivarp (drums), Anders Friden (vocals) and Fredrik Johansson (guitar) would release their debut, Skydancer, in 1993 on the 'Spinefarm' label that was soon after followed-up with Of Chaos And Eternal Night EP (1995) before changing to 'Osmose' to release The Gallery (1995), Enter Suicidal Angels EP (1996) and The Mind's I (1997). A slight change in style, drifting less into the direction of death metal was the result for the follow-up albums on 'Century Media' now featuring Martin Brandstrom on electronics and Michael Niklasson taking over from Johansson on guitar for Projector (1999), the Skydancer & Of Chaos And Eternal Night US re-issue of the Skydancer CD with the Of Chaos And Eternal Night MCD (2000), and Haven (2000). Their Damage Done (2002) release finally saw them receiving strong reviews.

2004 saw the release of Exposures - In Retrospect And Denial and Lost To Apathy while 2005 would see the release of a new album.
