THE DAHMERS_Photo by Mikey Lennartsson_edited.jpg

The dahmers

They are skeletons with attitude – a Swedish rock’n’roll horror sensation that’s creeping up on you since 2015 when their first EP was released. In a tornado of influences like garage punk, classic rock and 60's pop The Dahmers truly are a Frankensteins monster of music. This is a band who's going their own way with colorful contrasts but still keep the main essence of what they are all about. With catchy tunes that gets stuck to your brain like a leech they suck you in to their music and to a world filled with darkness. Their lyrics and aesthetics have a big inspiration from classic horror movies, but you also find emotional exposures about frustration, solitude and alienation amongst other things in their songs. A new killer EP will be out early 2023, so you will have to keep looking over your shoulder and under your bed for a while. The Dahmers are not sorry.

DJERV


Djerv spawned out of the bands Trelldom, Animal Alpha and Stonegard as they entered the international rock and metal scene in 2011. The sound of Djerv is different and can best be described as dangerously catchy aggressive rock wrapped in a black metal veil. Their self-titled debut album was engineered by Daniel Bergstrand (Meshuggah, In Flames), mixed by Matt Hyde (Deftones, No Doubt) and it received massive critical acclaim. After only two days in sale, the album crashed into the official Norwegian sales charts at an impressive #8. They were also the highest newcomer and #3 on Norwegian Artist Charts. Combined with heavy touring Djerv also have done some memorable collaborations. For example, vocalist Agnete Kjølsrud did vocals on Dimmu Borgir’s “Gateways” in 2010, a track that in 2022 has over 12 million streams. In 2013 Djerv released the track "Get Jinxed" together with League of Legends/Riot Games, and in 2022 this track has over 200 million streams across platforms. The band went under the radar for some years after this, but in 2019 they did a long-awaited comeback at the Tons of Rock festival in Norway. Since then, they have continued their journey and there is lots more to come!

LACKLAND

Lackland was formed during the summer of 2022 when Rickard Alriksson (Nasum/The Accidents) and Anton Strand (Seigmenn) realized that the Swedish music scene lacked something, so they decided to form the band that they wanted to hear themselves. They started to jam and published a video on social media, which caught the attention of their friend Martin Westerstrand (LOK/Lillasyster) who asked if they needed a singer and there you go - Lackland was formed. “We are the band that you would get if Lemmy would have joined Bad Religion” says Martin when asked to describe their style – classic hardcore punk with a touch of dirty rock. Their first single and video “WWe Are The Ones Who Won’t Forget” that is released on November 1st is just the beginning. More singles, videos and a full length album is coming up, so watch out!

Candlemass

After almost 40 years in the business and a couple of millions albums sold, Candlemass hardly needs any introduction. When putting out their classic debut album "Epicus Doomicus Metallicus” in 1986 the general opinion is that the subgenre known as Doom Metal was born. The band has been rewarded with a Swedish Grammy 2006 and 2020, and their international status was cemented when Candlemass also was nominated in the category “Best Metal” at the 2020 Grammy Awards in USA. Together with Ghost they are the only Swedish rock/metal act that has achieved this. Ever. The new killer album “Sweet Evil Sun” will be released on November 18 through Napalm Records.

VELVET INSANE



Velvet Insane is a 3-piece gang of rockers that reinvented glam rock by mixing the pop harmonies of the 70’s with the heavy sound of today.

SISTER

Sister was formed in 2006 and became known to the masses in 2009 when they released their first full-length album “Deadboys Making Noise”. Since then they have been touring around the world and released four more albums. The latest one is called “Vengeance Ignited” and was well received by the press when it came out in 2021. The fans also loved it, as you can see by looking at the digits on all streaming platforms. Another thing worth mentioning is the song “Would You Love a Creature” from the album “Hated” (2011) that all of a sudden became a hit single after being featured in the Netflix series “Peacemaker” (2022). Sister have big plans for the future and it’s an honor to have them in the Republic 66 family!

eradikated

They started their musical journey 2012 at the age of 9-11, influenced by bands such as Exodus, Slayer and the early years of Metallica. After hundreds of hours spent in their rehearsal space they named the band The Generations Army and started to prepare for world domination. In 2015 they joined forces with the drummer Calle and together with Elvin (vocals/guitar), Ragnar (lead guitar) and Erland (bass) the current line-up was complete.

After two studio albums (Still Screaming + Voices and Visions) and loads of live shows the band played in front of thousands of metalheads at Sweden Rock Festival 2019 (at the age of 17-19) and the show received a 9 out of 10 in Sweden Rock Magazine. Pumped with self confidence the band released the show as a live recording + video (Pure Swedish Kött – Live at Sweden Rock Festival) on all digital platforms and started to record a new album. Then covid-19 hit the world.

During the pandemic the band evaluated their past and thought about their next move and decided that a rebirth was necessary. Let’s put it this way: You ain’t seen nothing yet. The Generations Army is dead, long live The Generations Army. Chapter 2 has begun. Prepare yourself for ERADIKATED – harder, faster and meaner than anything you’ve ever seen or heard. The future of thrash metal is born.

knogjärn

 

Knogjärn was formed in 2015 and is a development of the band InSpite. The name was changed when they decided to go exclusively with Swedish lyrics. Knogjärn is known for their uncompromising and heavy sound with emotional and aggressive lyrics, all backed up with powerful drumming. They are also well known and loved for their energetic live shows, so if you have a chance to catch this band on stage – don’t miss out. Their latest single “Aldrig Mer” has raised the bar for the band and shortly a new awaited full length album will be released. 

Sweden rock festival

Sweden Rock hardly needs an introduction, but it’s well worth mentioning that the festival has a history that goes 30 years back in time. Both as a festival and a brand, Sweden Rock is nowadays an institution that many competitors use as a benchmark when it comes to quality, experience and last but not least – the loyalty among the festival's visitors.

When it comes to the brand, Sweden Rock has been very careful and specific when their name or brand has been used on external products. No matter what kind of merchandise that is being launched in the name of Sweden Rock the quality always needs to be high end.

EMILIA LINdBERG 

“I believe that with a great amount of passion you can make any dreams come true.”

I am passionate about becoming a force of nature within the art world and making sure my name will be remembered. Something I am willing to fight for.

My art features women drawn from imagination and inspiring women in my life. As a young girl my father often brought me to his job at the Royal Opera where I spent my time dreaming about the vibrant people, fantastic clothes and amazing art. Dreams that later became real in my paintings.
