First, SubVision was formed in 1999 by Australian film composer Braedy Neal, who provided cutting-edge music for Farscape, The Crash Zone, and Dreamtime to Dance. Subvision was soon joined by film and TV composer Chris Neal, and radio DJ Toby Neal, to become a total composing service using state-of-the-art technology. They have produced numerous dramatic underscores for feature films, television drama, documentary, television commercials and corporate productions.
Second Subvision, an alternative Pop/Rock band from Linköping/Stockholm, was officially formed on December 16 2002 by Tobias Forge (guitar/vocals), Gustaf Lindström (bass) and Thomas Daun (drums). With the intention of creating emotionally moving, weird and pop driven music, in stark contrast to the threesomes other band at the time, Repugnant.
Repugnant was a Death Metal band formed in 1998 by Tobias Forge. Line-ups came and went by and in 2001 the formation included both Thomas Daun and Gustaf Lindström on their current instruments respectively. The bands turf was primarily in the extreme Death Metal underground circuits. With two demo cassettes and a 7ep in four figure circulations worldwide Repugnant attracted somewhat of a cult reputation. Officially disbanded in April 2004, although the band had not been very active since October 2002, when their one and only album Epitome of Darkness was recorded.
Upon forming Subvision, a year of developing followed creating songs, rehearsing and refining their act prior to making their stage debut on November 8 2003.
Initially, the band went through different stages of imagery and masqueradory, trying to extend the content of the music. In contrary to a result wished for, audiences were confused with the bands´ intentions thus further attempts to enhance the shows with theatrics and such gradually faded away. After all, it was agreed that Subvisions music and words speak louder than any costume worn by their members.
In December 2004, their plastic debut came in form of The Killing Floor EP, a four song cd to introduce the band to the world with. Reactions from the ones who were given it, bought it or wrote about it was very positive.
Throughout the bands history, a problem has been a second guitarist. After episodes with Torbjörn Brynedal or Franz Cedrins filling this vacancy, Martin Persner took the role of fulltime member as guitarist in Subvision in August 2005 (although he actually filled in for a short tour already in December the previous year).
Despite national gigging and minor touring most effort during 2005/2006 was put into the creation of their debut full-length album, So Far So Noir.
By late July 2006, Gustaf Lindström decided to jump ship after almost four years within the group. Replaced by Simon Söderberg.
On August 30 2006, “So Far So Noir” was released in Sweden. Praised within the national press, the album is yet to be released abroad.
