Twins Crew - Biography




The first version of Twins Crew started out in the fall of 2005. Twin brothers Dennis and David Janglöv, Magnus Lind, Jonas Hultberg and Pontus Duvsjö, who all went to the same high school at Nynäshamns Gymnasium decided to start a heavy metal band. The first name of the band was Lost Spirits, but after the first show at Tumba Twins MC they decided to change the name to Twins Crew. The band members went their separate ways upon graduating in 2005.

Dennis and David packed their bags and went to Hollywood, CA to attend the famous Musician's Institute. They attended the 1.5-year program at GIT. Both David and Dennis graduated with Honors in 2007. During the last month of their time in Hollywood, they put out an add for musicians to a heavy metal band on a Swedish music site. Through the site they met Andreas "Lillen" Larsson (Skandal, Biggus Diggus) who knew a guitarist by the name of Hammar who was also a capable bassist.

The band performed live for the first time at Ubbes' 40-year anniversary party on the 4th of July, but it wasn't until late July that they met up with Uno, who had gone to school with the twins during their childhood and could play drums. Twins Crew officially became a band in August 2007.

The first EP, "Twins Crew", was recorded in January 2008 at the Deep Blue Studio over a period of two days. Most of the songs were recorded live. The EP was released in March of the same year and received great reviews worldwide. The band performed several live shows throughout 2008, perhaps the most notable being their opening for Iron Maiden during a concert at the Stockholm Stadium, July 2008.

Their second EP, "Twin Demon", was recorded in January 2009 in Standstraight Studio and was released in March.

The Recording of our first album "Judgement Night" took place in July 2010 in Deep Blue studio Nyköping, Sweden. The album was recorded during a of four weeks period and engineered by Nicko DiMarino who also recorded with band such as Steelwing and Malison Rogue.
The album's artwork is designed by Carl-André Beckston at Beckston Media Arts (EDGUY, House of Lords, TNT) and mastered by Mike Lind at Masterplant (Body Count, DIO, The Poodles).
Judgement Night received great reviews worldwide and was picked "album of the month" by several webzines and magazines.

Twins Crew made our first tour outside Sweden in 2009 in Germany and Austria. The tour was successful and they made a lot of new fans in the area. The Band has also supported the Japanese band Loudness, MILLION, Paul Dianno and was invited to play the largest indoor Heavy Metal festival in Sweden, House of Metal in 2011.

In November 2012 we went into the studio to start recording our 2nd album "The Northern crusade".
This album was also recorded in Deep Blue studios and the same people was involved in the making as the previous album.

Nicko Dimarino who previously have played with bands such as Sabaton etc joined the band shortly after the recording session was done. Nicko has been involved with the band from the start since he made all the keyboard parts on all of our albums so it was a natural step for the band.

Twins Crew signed a record deal with the Italian record label "Scarlet Records" in the beginning of 2013 for the release of their second album. The release of the album is set to July 31..

Twins Crew believes that the New Testament in the book of heavy metal is yet to be written and we would be loud and proud to be a part of it.
