The original core members of Eternal Fear formed the band in their hometown of Karlskoga, Sweden in the early 1990’s and after a number of band name and line- up changes they settled under the Eternal Fear moniker in 1995.
Between 1995 and 2001 the band concentrated on writing songs, recording demos and gaining live experience on the local area club circuit. With a strong work ethic for writing and perfecting their songs the band finally hit the recording studio to lay down tracks for their first album “Never Ending Existence”, self-released in 2002 the album received good reviews and sold well via the bands website, the album is now only available as a download.
The follow up album “Evil Deeds” saw the band make huge steps in developing their own sound and this album achieved greater media coverage for reviews and further interest in the band throughout mainland Europe. Released in 2007 “Evil Deeds” received strong sales across Europe via the TPL website.
After further writing sessions and live shows in Sweden the band returned to the studio for the recording of “Embraced In Darkness” (2010), further increasing their international profile. In 2012 a limited edition three track ep was released which previewed two new tracks and an exclusive live version of “Embraced In Darkness”. The ep was released by the bands new Italian based label; Sliptrick Records, who they had recently signed to giving the band distribution throughout mainland Europe.
In 2013 the band released their first album “Eternal Damnation” for Sliptrick Records. The album has been the bands best seller and led to the release of two successful promotional videos for the tracks “World Comes Down” and the title track “Eternal Damnation”. This year also saw them touring beyond Swedish shores for the first time including Beermageddon 2013 Festival in Bromsgrove, UK and signing to Viper Music & Promotions with the addition of three further dates in England. A return to the UK took place in October 2013 extending the Eternal Damnation Tour. The show at The Intrepid Fox in London was recorded live and released on CD, “UK Damnation – Live in London MMXIII”.
For 2014, the boys played shows in Sweden, and having built up a core following in Britain they gigged the Shadows Rising Tour pt. 1 in May and pt. 2 in October – 2 shows were filmed @The Box in Crewe and Fixxion Warehouse in Wolverhampton. Mattias Lövdal chose to leave the band in November after 10 years.
So far in 2015 they are recording their upcoming studio album, and in May with Torbjörn Brogren joining as bass player, it has a more weighty and forthright sound. In July the band played a home town gig at the newly re-opened Ella’s Event.
The band are now represented by Bearded Monkey Promotions in the UK.
