Metalite was formed in Stockholm, Sweden in 2015 when Edwin Premberg [guitar] met Emma Bensing [vocals]. The goal was to write and record melodic and memorable metal songs with a modern and fresh sound.
Edwin and Emma started to co-operate with the Danish producer Jacob Hansen [Volbeat, Evergrey, Amaranthe] and songs started to take shape. During 2016 Metalite found three experienced musicians that agreed to join the band: Lea Larsson [drums], Robert Örnesved [guitar] and Robert Majd [bass].
Metalite‘s debut album “Heroes In Time” has been released on October 27th i2017 n Europe and North America through Inner Wound Recordings.
