1. OUTSHINE (melodic, gothic rock/metal, Gothenburg, Sweden)
Outshine from Gothenburg, Sweden, is a heavy, melancholy, dark, hardrock/metal band with some grunge and gothic vibes. The band, or the concept of the band, was formed in the south of Sweden (Smålandsstenar/Gislaved) back in ‘95 by guitarist Jimmy Norberg.

The band started off more as a studio project and they recorded a few demos between ‘98-‘04. An EP was recorded in ‘05 (Memories) that got great reviews, airtime in radio (USA, Sweden, France, etc) and got the band endorsements deals. The first full length album “Bad Things Always End Bad” was released in May ‘07.

Outshine now consists of founder Jimmy Norberg (guitar), Erlend Jegstad (vocals) and Fredrik Kretz (drums). Between ‘04-‘09 the bass has been handled by Thomas Josefsson (Evocation), Simon Andersson (ex-Pain Of Salvation), Richard Martos (Urbandux), Fredrik Carlsson, David Malm and Per Stenbeck (Shifter).

4 US tours has taken place from 2006 until 2009 and Outshine released their 2nd album “Until We Are Dead” April 17th 2009. The album was recorded by Svein Jensen (M.A.N, Transport League, Hide The Knives, Sister Sin, Troublemakers etc) and mastered by Göran Finnberg (The Haunted, Opeth, Dark Tranquillity, In Flames etc) and has gotten great reviews in Swedish and European media.
