Left Hand Solution

Being a unique band, this four-piece band takes influences from all kinds of music that have metal connected to its name and makes a very own special blend of it all. Top this with a clear female voice with both depth and strength and add some gothic darkness and you are getting close to what Left Hand Solution is all about. Left Hand Solution was formed in 1991 by Jocke Mårdstam (guitar), Jörgen Fahlberg (vocals, bass) and Liljan Liljekvist (drums). About one year later they released their first demo, which was given the title “Dwell”.

In 1992 there were some changes in the line-up. The first one to enter was Peter Selin, who jumped in on bass as Jörgen wanted to sing only, but after a couple of months he decided to leave the band anyway. Later on Jörgen formed the now legendary cultcombo” The Kristet Utseende” together with Jesper Forselius. The three remaining members got the idea to try a female vocalist instead and found her in Kicki Höijertz. At the end of this year Liljan was replaced by Erik Barthold. With this lineup just a few days fresh, they entered the studio to record two tracks for the compilation-CD “Metal North”, which was released in 1993 on Massproduktion.

LHS was the band that got most of the attention and in 1994 they signed a contract with Massproduktion for one record. The same year they recorded a demo called “Falling” and in 1994 they signed with Massproduktion for a mini-CD.

    I do agree that Shadowdance and Fevered were sheer doom metal, but I do think that Light Shines Black most certainly has gothic influences. Gothic as in the traditional goth rock sense, kind of like Type O Negative. ;)

    This is not "gothic" in any way, go use your filthy poser tag elsewhere.. This band is really underrated btw. Very original and catchy mid tempo doom.

    Why did so many people tag them as "gothic doom metal" and "gothic metal"?! There's nothing "gothic" in this band and it has nothing common with the real so-called "gothic-doom" bands.

    i love the fact that they stay with perfectly resonable song lengths in most cases...that alone makes them kinda unique on the doom scene

    @ Nox: I honestly have no clue. But it seems as though they've put up some videos and full length songs which weren't present when I last visited this page, so they're not dead...
