Introduce Yourselves: PRESSURE

What is the name of your band?


What is the genre of music that you play?

We do a mix of different genres, when we write we always start with the lyrics first and then choose the rock/metal style that fits the lyrics the best in our opinion. I mean it can be everything from classic heavy metal to power metal.

Can you give a brief history of the band of how it came together and where it is today?

We have been around for like 5 years now. We started out as a cover band, touring all over Sweden before we started writing our own music. To be honest we got a little tired of playing other people’s music and we really got our mojo back when we started to write our own songs. All our songs are very closely connected to our lives, so we really have a strong connection to the songs.

Today we have released 2 full length album and reached over 1.5 million streams on Spotify. We are currently working on our third album. It will be the best album so far from us.

What can people expect from your music?

We try to invent our own subgenre of heavy metal that we call Story metal. We try to combine the diverse style that we have into a consistent metal story telling. You can expect elements of power metal, symphonic metal, heavy metal, thrash metal and a little of everything. We are also fronted by both a male and a female singer which gives us endless possibilities.

What is the best release that folks should check out from your band?

Would be the new upcoming release “All The Things”

Info About New Song All The Things

Sweden’s Pressure is back! The new sexy and compelling hard rock anthem "All The Things" marks the new beginning for Pressure and follows the newly released album "In A Dark Heart We Trust" which up until today has over 250k streams.


"All The Things" was written to reflect on the uncompromising urge that passion and yearning can inflict. When you meet someone and your mind tells you one thing, your heart also wants you to slow down but your body needs something else. Forbidden? Bad? no, just the urge that makes you do all those things, both good and bad, that bring life and meaning and passion to your life, because what would life be without some danger, a little naughty, a little dirty and some good experiences? "All The Things" will help you take a leap into some new and exciting experiences. Let’s live life on the dangerous side a bit!

Pressures first album “Path of a shadow” (2021) was the first ever released Story Metal album and was well received both by the hard-core rock fans and by media. A concept album but using different languages, styles, genres and music but managed to tie it all together with a story told from your shadow’s perspective.


Pressures second album “In a dark heart we trust” (2022) was the first album with Olli Violet and was a bit heavier and darker than the first album. A much bigger production and a heavier sound that spans from 80's rock to modern metal.
