Profile The band was formed in 2007, at first as an offshot of BALTIMOORE, but soon enough the band felt more like a new and fresh unit with no history and only a future!  Björn Lodin, who also recorded/mixed/mastered and produced this first BALLS album “Chameleon”, has a vast and exciting history starting in the 80s with the band SIX FEET UNDER and later a long career with BALTIMOORE.

Micke “Nord” Andersson, has recorded and toured with numerous high profile bands/artists such as ROXETTE, JAMIE WALTERS, BJÖRN SKIFS etc, produced bands like THE RASMUS and written songs with the SCORPIONS, not forgetting his own tribute to the blues based seventies in the band NORD. Janne Stark, has a rap sheet including bands like OVERDRIVE, LOCOMOTIVE BREATH, ZELLO, MOUNTAIN OF POWER etc. .. When auditioning drummers and bass players their choice fell on Robban Bäck and Björn Lundqvist, two young, hungry and musically outstanding guys!.. Robban Bäck is currently playing with melodic rockers ECLIPSE and has also been found in PREY, BLACK LADIES and BILLION DOLLAR BABIES.

Björn Lundqvist also plays bass in the band SKYRIDE. In December 2008 Björn decided to leave the band. A replacement hasn’t been announced yet. The band has now been put to permanent rest. Stark is working with Guts, Constancia and Overdrive, Bäck with WET, Eclipse and Billion Dollar Babies, Lundqvist with Billion Dollar Babies, while Nord is doing studio work.
