The third record sounds like Tungsten should sound; tight, hard and incredibly well-played metal with influences from both old and new. Folk music and industrial metal can be heard mixed with hard rock and sing-along choruses. The single "The Fairies Dance" from the debut album "We Will Rise" has reached 3 million listens on Spotify alone.
Tungsten consists of the highly qualified Anders Johansson (ex. Hammerfall, ex. Yngwie J Malmsteen's Rising Force blah) and his two sons Karl and Nick Johansson on bass and guitar. The lead singer and frontman is Mike Andersson who, with his strong and varied voice, makes the band complete.
Tungsten was formed in the summer of 2016 by Anders Johansson (ex Hammerfall, ex Yngwie J. Malmsteen's Rising Force) after he heard songs that his sons Nick & Karl had written. He asked if they were interested in starting up a bond with him. Singer became Mike Andersson (ex. Cloudscape, ex. Fullforce). The debut album We Will Rise was released in 2019 and the sequel Tundra in 2020.
The band has done appreciated live shows a couple of times in Gothenburg and Stockholm and headlined a festival in Germany. The record label is German Arising Empire Records.
So welcome to Skellefteå Summertime Tungsten!
