Corrosive Sweden is from Sweden and was established in 1997 by Johan Bengtsson, Simon Tengstrand & Thomas Hedin. Like most bands, it was in the beginning a fun thing and the ambitions were not particularly high .

 

In 2000 Christer Ulander joined the band as a lead guitarist. The band recorded the first demo Lost In Fame. The demo contains seven songs which become very popular around their hometown.

 

The following year Corrosive Sweden recorded

a 7 track demo called Someone 's Watching. Corrosive Sweden also got the opportunity to play as a opening act to The Hives.

 

In 2002 the third demo Corrosive Sweden was recorded. The band participated in a large music competition for all unsigned bands in the county.

A second place in the competition gave a gig with the not entirely unknown Samantha Fox.

 

In 2003 & 2004 Corrosive Sweden played with many established acts such as The Hellacopters , Petter & Tad Morose. Many festivals also received a visit from Swedens hardest working band Corrosive Sweden. Daniel Hedin replaced his brother Thomas on drums & the fourth demo, History was recorded.

 

2005 Corrosive Sweden won the music contest

King of Rock which resulted in the first full disc WANTED 2006. The year continued with many gigs, including one as special guest for Backyard Babies.

 

After the WANTED release party 2006 Corrosive Sweden started to record the sequel.

FROM THIS DAY TO ETERNITY (the 3rd chapter) was released in 2008. Lars Grahn replaced Simon on bassguitar and four music videos were also released. With the song UPRISING, Corrosive Sweden became one of 13 finalists to radio Gavleborgs prestigious music prize in 2008.

 

Moreover, Corrosive Sweden was the only metal band that fought their way to this list.

 

In 2009 , the band had many gigs around the country. They also released the live album

LIVE IN DARK CITY for download on the website.

 

In 2010 the band decided for various reasons to cut back on gigs to focus on writing new material for the next album .

 

A little appetizer BIG MOUTH was recorded in 2012 and was released on Sound Cloud.

Johan retired his guitar playing and Peter

"Malcolm" Forss joined as guitarist in the band. SCARS (part 1) was released in May 2013 and SCARS (part 2) in late march 2014.
