In Sweden, singer Krister Linder is more known as the guy who disappeared. Since his national career started off with a blast in the late eighties, he’s been making it anything but simple to track him down. Back in those days he used the pseudonym Chris Lancelot, but after a massive movie-soundtrack hit with his band at the time, Grace, he shaved his head, changed his name again and immediately formed a new group called DIVE together with band-member/producer Erik Holmberg. DIVEs perhaps most memorable track Captain Nemo, was discovered and interpreted by Brittish singer Sara Brightman who released her own version on single, album, Best Of-Compilation and live-album. But instead of pursuing their path, DIVE released their third and perhaps best album in 1994 and then vanished.
While some were still waiting for DIVE’s fourth album, Mr. Linder had stopped singing and begun to produce instrumental works for limited editions on small labels. He put out electronic music under names like Tupilaq, Yeti, Society, Illuminum, Godkingpriest and Solaroid while consistently changing aliases for each new release. Then, occasionally his voice would make guest-appearances on others’ tracks. Apparently he had left his bat-cave or whatever to do vocals with fine underground artists like Cari Lekebusch, Peter Benish, Cotton Ferox, Omnimotion and Vacuum. But those who liked the sound of him never knew where he would pop up next or what he’d call himself.
Now, 12 years after DIVE Mr. Linder suddenly turns up as himself, with a label of his own and a fresh, self-produced album. Songs From The Silent Years is a collection of gems from one of the most beloved, lost sons of Sweden.
His song Dare is used as a soundtrack on Metropia.Movie directed by Tarik Saleh.
