We Are To Blame

We Are To Blame (Metal) - Sweden

What happens when the joy of Astrid Lindgrens wonderful stories intertwines with the melancholy born from the endless nights north of the Arctic Circle? Music. When Johan Karlsson posted an ad for a pop vocalist for a metal project, Alice Hartvig was both interested and sceptical. Although she was an experienced vocalist, she had never been involved with metal music before. After a quick discussion and a demo recording however, it was clear that she was the perfect fit for Johans vision and We Are To Blame was born.

Together with guitarist Urban Granbacke they began to write the beginning of We Are To Blames story. Marrying the vocal lines and melodies from pop with the massive foundation of metal, they aim to bring a fresh perspective in a familiar voice. With strong lyrical themes that lie close to their hearts, they want to bring music that moves the listener.

The band's sound is influenced by power metal, melodic death metal aswell as progressive metal. Utilizing both symphonic and electronic elements in combination with Alice's vocals, with a strong focus on providing each song with its own identity.
