Evergrey at Muziekgieterij

A melodically charged, dark progressive/power metal unit based out of the decibel-rich city of Gothenburg, Sweden, Evergrey was founded in 1995 by guitarist/vocalist Tom S. Englund.

The band issued a pair of well-received LPs, The Dark Discovery and Solitude, Dominance, Tragedy, in 1998 and 1999, respectively, before making their mark with 2001’s lauded alien abduction-themed concept album, In Search of the Truth. Recreation Day and The Inner Circle saw the band continuing to explore complex narrative themes, and in 2005 they released their first concert album/video A Night to Remember.

The band tapped esteemed producers Sanken Sandquist and Stefan Glaumann to helm their sixth studio album, Monday Morning Apocalypse. 2007’s Torn debuted at number four on the Swedish charts, and the following year saw Evergrey ink a deal with Steamhammer/SPV, which would go on to re-release the band’s entire back catalog, helping them secure an international fan base.

Their first new outing with the label, Glorious Collision, dropped in 2011, followed by Hymns for the Broken in 2014 and the Storm Within in 2016, both of which were released via German metal label AFM.
