Metal band from Sweden. Avatar and their followers are the ones who dare to see their full potential, not afraid to stare deep into whatever darkness that comes their way. Founded in the then young Swedish boy John Alfredsson’s mind by the turn of the millennium, they have always stood for relentlessness and determination. With the addition of every new member the energy has risen like a mushroom cloud. Avatar means a God in disguise. Nothing but greatness is accepted. With the blunt force that is metal music Avatar has set out to claim their kingdom; Earth.
The music is as always, rooted in the extreme, with plenty of melodic sensibility and a lust for experimentation. There is a love for intense double bass drumming, riffing and shredding of timeless dimensions alongside rough edges, slow grooves and epic storytelling for the ages.
