    Biography

    The Beginning
    After many successful years with Sabaton the four original members Daniel Mullback, Rikard Sundén, Daniel Myhr and Oskar Montelius decided to leave the band after the recordings of the awarded album "Carolus Rex" 2012. However, they still wanted to play music and together with Nils Patrik Johansson, the singer known from Astral Doors and Lion's Share, they decided to make a new band. Stefan "Pizza" Eriksson was their first choice as bassplayer in this new force, and he accepted their request. Civil War was complete.

    The Music
    Civil War had a record deal before they even had written a single tune together. The deal said: an EP shall be released October 2012. Said and done: The writing process started and it soon was clear that the music was a hybrid between Power Metal and classic Heavy Metal. The EP kicks off with the ultra catchy "Rome is Falling" and continues with "Civil War", "Forevermore", "Custer's Last Stand" and the cover "Say it Right". A good start for the band, even though it was released pretty much in the shadows since the label wanted to save the big campaign for their full length debut.

    The Killer Angels
    The work with their debut album started right away after the EP was released and in June 2013, "The Killer Angels" was shipped out to the stores. Just in time for their first live performance at Sweden Rock Festival. With songs like "First to Fight", "I Will Rule the Universe", "Sons of Avalon" and "My Own Worst Enemy", the band had made a modern day Heavy/Power Metal classic; the reviews were overwhelming and Civil War had proved their capacity to the world. The album reached in August 2013 Gold status in Sweden, an award that goes out to albums that sold more than 20 000 copies.
