Dark Tranquillity



Dark Tranquillity is a melodic death metal band from Gothenburg, Sweden. Starting in 1989 named Septic Broiler, they have had a fairly stable line-up from the beginning, unlike many bands in the genre.

In 1993, Anders Fridén, the original lead vocalist, left the band to join In Flames. Mikael Stanne, formerly playing rhythm guitar became the vocalist, with Fredrik Johansson taking over the guitars. Mikael also recorded vocals with In Flames. However, contrary to popular belief, he was never a full member of that band; he was a session vocalist and sang to help out the members of In Flames.

In 1998, before the release of the album Projector, Johannson left the band. Keyboardist Martin Brändström and bassist Michael Nicklasson were added to the line-up, and Martin Henriksson switched to the guitar. This album was nominated for a Swedish Grammy Award. Their next albums were Haven (2000), Damage Done (2002), Character (2005) and Fiction (2007).

In 2008, Michael Nicklasson departed and Daniel Antonsson joined the band as full time bassist.

Dark Tranquillity is known to be a pioneer of the Gothenburg Metal sound alongside bands such as At the Gates and In Flames. Anders Jivarp has been the drummer since the band was formed.
