Their debut MCD Demise The Crown was released through the small Swedish label Heathendoom Records and earned them their first positive reactions. In 1996 they finally found drummer Petter Ter-Borch who added the last missing piece to define their musical vision. After two years of intense rehearsals they finally felt comfortable enough to release their mini-CD Focus which received excellent reviews in national magazines and fanzines. Even though the first labels approached the band they decided to take their time to find a suitable partner.
After finally signing with Century Media Records in 2001, relocating from their original hometown Bollnäs to Gothenburg and also renaming the band MARBLE ARCH, they were more than ready to start pre-producing their debut album with Finnish producer Anssi Kippo (Children Of Bodom, Entwine, Lullacry). Around the same time Johan decided to fully concentrate on his duties as a vocalist and frontman, but the vacant bass-spot was quickly filled by then-session musician Jesper Bagge (who became a permanent member after the album was recorded). In the end of May they sequestered themselves in Lappeenranta, Finland to record Another Sunday Bright in Anssi Kippo’s Astia Studio. During the recording, Tanja Lainio from Lullacry stopped by to add some female backing vocals to some of the songs which only cater the dark and melancholic vibe of this rock album.
It might take a few turns here and there, but afterwards Another Sunday Bright will without a doubt be a fellow friend – and not only for your darkest hours. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
