Swedish Melodic Death Metal Band ‘Solution .45’ to Release ‘Nightmares In The Waking State – Part II’ on August 26th., Cover Artwork & Tracklist Revealed


solution_45_859Swedish melodic death metal band Solution .45 will release their new album “Nightmares In The Waking State – Part II” worldwide on August 26th via AFM Records. The album will be available on CD, limited vinyl, as well as most digital platforms.

The cover art (below) was done by Par Olofsson. The layout and design was done by Seiya Ogino (Ogino Design) and Christian Älvestam.

Solution .45 formed in late 2007 as a conceptual entity, but never blossomed into fruition until fall 2008, when Christian Älvestam (Unmoored, Miseration, Torchbearer, ex- Scar Symmetry), Jani Stefanovic (Miseration, Essence Of Sorrow), Anders Edlund (ex-Solar Dawn), Rolf Pilve (Stratovarius, Essence Of Sorrow), Tom Gardiner (Essence Of Sorrow, ex- Mors Principium Est), and Mikko Harkin (ex-Sonata Arctica, Kotipelto) recorded an 8-track demo with Thomas “Plec” Johansson (Scar Symmetry, Watain) handling production-duties.  Being impressed with the unfinished demo songs, Germany’s AFM Records and Japan’s Marquee/Avolon Inc signed the band to record deals in 2009. With these in place, Solution .45 went back to “Plec’s” Panic Room Studios to finally record their debut album. Entitled “For Aeons Past”, and released in March 2010, Solution .45‘s first full-length effort was unanimously praised by critics and fans as a triumphantly infectious, yet meaty release that the metal scene needed.

The long awaited sophomore effort “Nightmares in the Waking State, Pt. I,” has been released on November 20th 2015 via AFM Records. Our review can be found here.

The band is comprised of: Christian Älvestam – vocals, Patrik Gardberg – rhythm and lead guitar, Jani Stefanovic – rhythm and lead guitar, Rolf Pilve – drums.
