DIE HARD (Sweden) Biography, Interviews and Reviews

BIOGRAPHY

In November 2005 Harry (Bass) formed a band with the intention of bringing the spirits of the past back to life. The goal was to play old-school thrash metal in the vein of Venom, Celtic Frost, Slayer, Exodus, Possessed, Sodom and Kreator. One year later, after many line-up changes, a band consisting of Harry (Bass), Hasse (Guitar / vocals), Micke (Guitar) and Nicke (Drums) started rehearsing. In February 2007 they entered studio Hell for the recording of their debut-demo “Emissaries of the Reaper” which was later on released as a 7″ EP by Germany’s Anger of Metal records.
For the rest of the year DIE HARD played in Sweden, Holland and Germany with, among others, In Solitude and Warrant (Ger)
In January 2008 Micke and Nicke decided to leave DIE HARD and were replaced by Hakan (Drums). After a few months of intense rehearsing the trio entered Studio Blueflame to record the MCD “Evil Always Return”. In connection with the release DIE HARD played at Maiden Massacre in Oslo with Watain / Nifelheim / Obscurity. In October 2008 closed a deal with the independent polish label Agonia Records.
To keep the flame burning we record “Mercenaries of Hell” EP it was released in march 2009 and the band toured Germany before once again focusing on writing new material, this time for the debut full-length album “Nihilistic Vision” released on Agonia Records 31st of October 2009. With worldwide good reviews DIE HARD hit Europe again, enforced with session drummer E. Forcas.
In march 2010 Hakan leaves the band and DIE HARD once again enter Studio Blueflame with session drummer Simpan to record the 5 year anniversary EP “Thrash Them All”. In September an extra guitar was added, handled by Simon. DIE HARD celebrates their 5 year anniversary with a concert in their hometown together with Vulcano in our hometown Uppsala.   In February 2011 we went out on a European tour as special guest at SODOM.
