Biography

Höör, Sweden (1995 – present)

There exist two artists named Skyfire:

1. Skyfire is a Swedish band heavily influenced by and , and later in their career elements had also been implemented with the highly acclaimed Esoteric album released in 2009. They were formed in the town of Höör, Sweden, in 1995. Thus far, two of the founding four members of the band have remained in the lineup: Andreas Edlund, Martin Hanner, Jonas Sjögren, and Tobias Björk.

The main songwriters of Skyfire are Andreas and Martin, but alas, none of these four members had any singing talent. When they decided to record a demo, the band contacted Mattias Holgrem of Embracing who was found to be amicable to the idea. The resulting demo, recorded at TMS Recording in Hässleholm during December of 1997, was entitled Within Reach. The band was ambivalent about the result and changed their sound accordingly for a second demo.

For this demo, known as The Final Story, they found a new singer in Henrik Wenngren, a diminutive man with a large voice who lived far removed from the rest of the band. Still, the resulting sound was infinitely preferable. The demo was heard by a friend of the band’s, Patrik Lindgren, a member of the band Thyrfing, who sent the demo along to the label Hammerheart. They were signed by Hammerheart for two albums.
