Album Notes
is a new Swedish hardrock band with influence from the 1970-80 metal / hardrock sound like Rainbow, Judas Priest etc.
It all started as a project by Carl Månstrand early 2009, then ended with 3 new bandmember and a cd ” Hell (with) the King.” Se the reviews from radiostations*!

Carl Manstrand/vocalist and guitarrplayer!
Drums Håkan Hansson!
- The bassman is an old friend of my and very proffesional (a genius), Fredrik Appelgren ,
Rickard Hoerberg play sologuitar and comp.

Carl’s own history is this!
–“My background as a musican started early when I was 16. I bought my first guitar and after 2 months I had composed my first song, a blues. Mike Bygdemark, Kenth Bostrom and I started a band named The Duke, later we called us Moonrock. We had some gigs in Stockholm. - Two years later Mike and I started a band called Stormwarning (Count Raven, today) with Dan Fondelius. I quit after 3 year , instead I played with the drummer Jens Bock with a homestudio a couple of years …

- I think I composed 250 songs in different genre. At least 20 of them were very good! Then I quit all composing, I was tired of it. About 10 years after quiting (only played little in my home) Jens Bocks brother Jimmy called me at the phone, he wanted a bassplayer. I thought it could be cool to give the music a new chanse ! And it was! Since then I had been involved with the music again!- I realy love fast riff, nice powerful songs. One style i like to compose is also crazy punk, ”just let it out” sound. Dont keep your feelings inside you. Life is to short. - Lets hope for a rocking future

Fredrik Appelgren history. He have been involved in many bands over the years, with Swedish music celebrities in all sort of genre etc. And performed in Globen - one of the famous musicplace in Stockholm. And on TV a several times in the program “Kvällsöppet”! He started his carrier at the age of 15. He can play various of instrument like, piano, horns, viola, guitarr etc!

Rille(Richard Hoerberg)started playing guitar at age 12. After a year or so he started to put a band together with some friends. That band was the foundation for the Trash-speed metal band Appendix, who teared together a couple of demos and a split EP during some busy years in the eighties and early ninties. The band broke up and a time of coverband and troubador playing started. After some time he decided to try his luck in the great land in the west together with one of the Appendix guys. After a couple of years there he finally moved back home.

Since January 2010 many lyrical radiostations (20-25) over the world have written to us and want our cd to play On air. Half of them called us first! To be totally unknown I believe it’s great!

We was the number one choice at European Klassik Rock (E.K.R) radiostation in February with our song Classica, voted by the listener. Won over Europe, Tokio Hotel and other 50 famous band.

Their Music I Thought Was A perfect Fit To Be Featured With Tonights Guest Joe Lynn Turner.”

Rush on Rock (
ManStrand – ManStrand (Self Released)
Think back to a time when 70s rock and metal ruled (i.e. the 70s) and this fabulous retro-fest will take you there. Fueled by flared jeans, long hair and a love of the pounding riff, ManStrand’s magnificent music fuses Sabbath with Rainbow and Whitesnake with Deep Purple to satisfy any fan of truly classic rock.
Singer songwriter Carl Manstrand has revamped five tracks from his prolific past and thrown them together with seven new compositions. Significantly fellow guitarist Richard Hoerberg is credited with contributing to opening duo Come On and Classica and these two tracks blow the following three out of the water.
It seems Manstrand (the man, not the band) might have found the yin to complement his yang in the shape of Hoerberg. It’s a potential match made in metal heaven and promises much for the future.
On the strength of this debut, ManStrand’s follow-up – already in production – should take the Swedes to the next level. That time can’t come soon enough.
rushonrock rated: 9/10 Man-na From Heaven

I think our music-style are inspired by Deep Purple, Judas Priest, Jimi Hendrix, Rainbow, The Sweet, Rainbow, UFO etc.

We are now recording our next CD which will be classic hardrock style 1970-80!
And together with Mr Bryan from USA (lastname I dont know, didnt asked him yet) , a sound-ingeneer who had worked with Michael Jackson, Rising Force (Yngwie Malmsteen) etc, the sound will be perfect!!
Best regards
Carl Månstrand
