Bio:

Midnight Sun was formed in Summer 1996. Still under the name of Tranquility the group gave a series of club shows all over Sweden and - after changing the band name to Midnight Sun – recorded their debut album, Another World in the ´Roasting House` Studio. The CD was released in in Japan, Sweden and Germany in 1997 and received brilliant reviews in BURRN, Young Guitar, Music Life, etc. Their follow-up work, Above & Beyond was released a year later and showed, with the help of two guest musicians, drummer Hempo Hildén (Dokken, Slash, Glenn Hughes Band) and the brilliant guitarrist John Norum (ex Europe), the band in the style of the heroes of melodic hardrock´s á la Rainbow, Deep Purple and Yngwie Malmsteen. BURRN awarded Above & Beyond 89 from 100 possible marks and this was reflected in other reviews all over the world. For their third album, Nemesis (also awarded 89) Midnight Sun changed the line-up again. In the place of guitarist Chris Palm came the young, talented Magnus Karlsson who had already made a great name for himself for his fabulous playing in numerous other Swedish bands. Karlsson's fancy playing left a permanent mark on Nemesis and often led to comparisons with Malmsteen and even to Iron Maiden.New to the band is singer Jakob Samuel who has replaced shouter Pete Sandberg. "There were no personal problems between Pete and I," Reingold explains. "It was just the right time to go our separate ways. It's a bit like a football team - you have to change the players now and again to stay competitive. Even if such a shake-up means taking a certain risk." After Sandberg left Reingold contacted his old friend, Jakob Samuel who travelled down from Stockholm and who put all doubts aside at the very first rehearsal session together. "He was steaming!", Reingold recalls, still impressed. "His singing just blew us away." Guitarist Magnus Karlsson, who joined the band for the recordings of the last album, Nemesis has become an especially important part of the current Midnight Sun lineup. On Metal Machine, Karlsson can demonstrate all his talent. His precise, rhythmical way of playing and his clever solos prove him to be a brilliant instrumentalist, who enhances Metal Machine as much as he does on his own new Last Tribe album, The Ritual. Completing the current lineup is drummer Jaime Salazar, certainly one of the best and most popular Swedish drummers of the day and also a member of the Scandinavian progrock elite band, The Flowerkings. Majestic Keyboarder, Richard Anderson was invited to play as guest musician and although keyboard parts on Metal Machine are few and far between, Richard can be heard during his brilliant solo in ´Distorted Eyes`. The eleven tracks of the new album were produced by Anders Theo Theander (Majestic, Pain Of Salvation etc.) in the Swedish ´Roasting House` Studios! .

Album:

"Midnight sun" is a technical/neoclassical hard rock band from Sweden best known amongst enthusiast as the group through which guitarist/songwriter extraordinaire Magnus Karlsson (`Primal Fear', `Allen Lande')made his professional debut while also having in their ranks, at some point, Jakob Samuel (`The Poodles') and Jamie Salazar (`Bad Habit').Still this early line up of their debut album `Above and beyond' (1998) finds band leader and bass player Jonas Reingold joining forces with guitarist Chris Palm and drummer Hempo Hilden and singer Pete Sandberg. Objectively one can make out that `Above and beyond' is an album produced in the 90s as it does not have an outstanding production; still the material more than makes up for that. Foremost the musicians are true virtuosos making extensive use of their technique without causing the album to sound complicated; instead they use progressions and neoclassical elements to make their compositions even more infectious and catchy.On a personal level, I managed to get a copy of the album in early 2009 and it definitely became one of the albums I played the most that year. A conclusive view on the album would indicate that `Above and beyond' is melodic, emotional and personal- still in terms of technique, there is a lot to be heard beyond the first play; in particular the rather inventive bass lines hidden under the lead guitars as well as the complex blend between bass and drums. Favorite tracks include `Reality', `Keep on pushing', `Deception of evil' and `Don't get me wrong'.Overall `Above and beyond' is an incredibly memorable album that manages to engage the listener directly while challenging one to come back for more detailed/analytical listening.
