Biography

Platitude is the name of multiple artists.

—Platitude was a Swedish progressive metal band that was formed back in 1995, until they decided not to continue in 2008 due to “injuries, lack of time and devotion” according to their website.

Platitude from Sweden secured themselves a record deal with Italian Scarlet Records in the spring of 2002, and their debut studio album “Secrets Of Life” was recorded in the beginning of August 2002 together with producer Tommy Hansen at the world renomed Jailhouse Studios (Helloween, Pretty Maids, TNT, etc. ). The Japanese version was released in February 2003 and within the next months, positive reviews from all over the world came rushing in. According to many, Platitude was the next shining star in the European heavy metal industry. Followed by the great mediatric response, it was time to face the fans.
In May 2003, Platitude joined the Danish heavy metal band Manticora on a European tour. Tommie Lundgren had left the band and was replaced by a new keyboardist/composer named Kristofer von Wachenfeldt. The tour took the two bands to venues in Holland, Germany, France and Denmark. Soon after returning to Sweden, Platitude was, once again, asked to join a headliner on tour. This time supporting UK’s premiere progressive metal band Threshold for two live concerts in Germany. The tour ended with a successful gig at the Sweden Rock Festival in June 2003.

    "We've come to the decision not to continue together as a and. Injuries, lack of time and devotion and also band members spread across the country being the main reasons. Everyone in the band remains good friends and we still get together from time to time." Sad...real sad....

    I really love the demos on the 'Girls Gone Wild Soundtrack' CD I can't wait for the New York-based band to get some good exposure, I'd love to see one of their concerts!

    Yes, I also like them very much, but they're one of those bands that will probably never get to the popularity of even Stratovarius or likes...
