Heavy Load

Heavy Load formed in 1976, as a trio, by the two brothers Ragne (vocals and guitar) and Styrbjörn Wahlquist (vocals and drums), together with bassist Michael Backlund.

In 1977 they recorded their debut-album "Full Speed At High Level", with Dan Molén on bass.

Former Highbrow guitarist Eddy Malm joined the line-up, and Torbjörn Ragnesjö replaced Dan Molén. This line-up released the EP "Metal Conquest" and the two full-length albums "Death Or Glory" and "Stronger Than Evil" before breaking up.

Another attempt was made in 1985 with the single "Monsters Of The Night", featuring bassist Andreas Fritz, but they split up again shortly afterwards.

In 1987, the Wahlquist brothers kickstarted the band yet again, and recorded an album with ex-UFO bassist Paul Gray and guitarist Patrik Karlsson. This album was never released, though. « hide
