State of Salazar started in 2010 by five students from the Malmö Academy of Music who wanted to play rock music made for the big arenas. The singer and songwriter, Marcus Nygren, began thinking of the concept of having a band like State of Salazar in 2009 when he wrote a couple of songs that did not fit his metal based band 8-Point Rose. State of Salazar kept a pretty low profile the first two years with a few gigs and recording demo tracks.
When they released their debut EP ”Lost my Way” in the summer of 2012, it spread fast in magazines and blogs and created a flood of praise. The Swedish quintet received a lot of positive critique from all over the world during a very short period of time.
The EP release was followed up by entering the rehearsal room straight away to work on new songs for a planned debut album called “All The Way”. In the beginning of 2013 State of Salazar signed with the Italian record company Frontiers Records.
State of Salazar chose to work with Markus Nilsson (A.C.T, Andromeda, Royal Republic, Deville) as a co-producer, recording- and mixing engineer for the album “All The Way”. The whole process of recording and mixing took place in Sunnanå Studio and lasted for one year.
Fascination Street Studios was chosen for the mastering, with Tony Lindgren (Paradise Lost, Kreator, Enslaved, Katatonia) behind the controls.
For the artwork State of Salazar decided to work with Emil Nyström at Emil Media, who’s a talented photographer and his earlier released series with his daughter was a great inspiration for the artwork.

Soon after the release of “All The Way” keyboard player Stefan Mårtenson chose to leave the band to pursue other things in life. Instead their long-time friend Kevin Hosford took his place as the band's new keyboard player. At this time the band had started working on their follow-up album “Superhero”. Kevin contributed not only as keyboard player but also as lead vocalist and songwriter.
The album is released (again via Frontiers Music) in December 2018.
