Style Hard Rock

Profile Former school mates Victor Olsson and Dino Zuzic once had a funk rock band together which ultimately went up in flames after school graduation in 2005. From the ashes rose an idea to form a heavy rock band where all their rock and metal influences could be combined into one bowl of steaming rock n’ roll soup! They soon found reinforcements in bass player Magnus Carlsson, drummer Gustav Elowson and vocalist Martin Jonasson.

In 2007 a demo was recorded and released on myspace. Due to lack of time, drummer Gustav Elowson had to leave the band in early 2008. But the band soon found a new drum basher in the form of National Drum solo Champion of 2008, Anton Roos. They went on by playing gigs at several different venues in Gothenburg, which gave them a growing fanbase.

In early 2009, they recorded and released their second demo. In the spring of 2010 Martin Jonasson decides to leave the band, due to personal reasons. After searching across the nation to find Martin’s replacer, it became clear that there was only one guy who had the skills for it. His name was Tobbe Jansson. Together they felt stronger than ever and recorded a new self produced demo (released early 2011) and started doing concerts again.

In January 2012, SAFFIRE entered the legendary Studio Fredman (In Flames, The Haunted, Spiritual Beggars etc…) and began recording their debut album “From Ashes to Fire”. The recording went on during the spring and early summer and in June they came back to the studio to mix the album. At the controls were no other than Fredrik Nordström and Henrik Udd. The album was later mastered at the world famous Fascination Street Studios by Jens Bogren (Opeth, Symphony X, Soilwork etc..). In november 2012 SAFFIRE signed a record deal with Inner Wound Recordings. The album will be released May 17th in Europe and North America.
