Nightscape - Biography

This band's profile is 'invisible', meaning that it's much less prominent on the site - either because it's incomplete, or maybe doesn't entirely fit MS format.


It all began back in the year 2000 when Simon and Jocke ended up in the same class at the same music college. One day they got together at Simon's house and started jamming. Jocke made up some riffs and they decided to arrange it on a computer. They were pleased with the result and that's how they got the idea to start a band.

As Jocke's primary instrument was the guitar, he took the place of lead guitarist. They needed another guitar player in the band, so they invited Simon's younger brother, Pontus, to join. Simon grabbed the keyboard at first but as he had such good vocal skills he soon changed and took the place as the lead singer. But they still needed a drummer, bass player and a keyboard player to complete the line-up, so they started to look around at their school and found Tyler (drums) and Stefan (bass) in their class and they joined the band. Now they only needed someone to take place as a keyboard player so Jocke talked to one of his friends who had a death metal band, and he introduced Jocke to their keyboard player Markus who later joined the band. They now had a full line-up and the band, known as Nightscape, was created.

After several years of rehearsing, live gigs, hard work and a single demo, the band built up a reputation in Sweden that was enough to capture the interest of Lion Music, who released the band's debut album, Symphony Of The Night, on September 11th 2005.
