MarysCreek courageously blends modern heavy metal with the classic melodies of Scandinavian pop tradition to form a fresh and unique sound. The ambition is to take the best of the two worlds: a heavy rock foundation consisting of fat, distorted guitars and huge drums with a delicious topping of pop-flavored song melodies arranged with multi layered vocals.
MarysCreek was founded by Mats Nilsson & Stefan Halldin in 2004 with the intention to create an outfit blending the modern heavy rock of today with the Swedish tradition of strong melodies catchy choruses. Demo’s where sent to various labels and after negotiations the band signed their record deal with the German major label, MTM. The members of the MarysCreek team continued their work with their debut album.
To supply the bands material with the necessary heavy sound, demon producer Fredrik “Fredman” Nordström (In Flames, Soilwork, The Haunted, Opeth and Dream Evil) was engaged for mixing the album. By September 2006 his work was finished and MarysCreek had their debut album in their hands. “Some Kind of Hate” was released March 24th, 2007 by MTM Music and received great responses and the band toured to support the album. MarysCreek have shared stage with many artists. Among them: Takida, Evergrey, Crucified Barbara, Dead by April, Uriah Heep, The Poodles, Fatal Smile, etc.
After changes in the line-up, MarysCreek is today constituted by Mats Nilsson (v), Peter Bergkvist (g), Roger Blomberg (b), Jonas Hallberg (g) and Stefan Halldin (d). Their new EP ‘Incubic Tin’ was recorded, this time with the help of the two producers Henrik Edenhed (Robyn, Straight Frank, Cesars Palace, Dead By April, etc.) and Sebastian Forslund (Staireo, Night Flight Orchestra, etc.) and release on June 16, 2014 via MarysCreek Recors. The two producers have backgrounds as metal fans but with broad musical experiences from diverse musical contexts, flavoring the sound of the new songs in the best possible way.
MarysCreek new, album ‘Infinity’ was recorded in June/July 2015. The 12 tracks are mixed by Stefan Glaumann (Rammstein, Within Temptation, Europe, Paradise Lost, etc.) and mastered by Svante Forsbäck (Rammstein, Volbeat, Lindemann, Tarja Turunen, etc.). The 1st solo part on the sond “Forever Lost” is played by David Andersson (Soilwork, Night Flight Orchestra).
