Hollingshead

From Sweden comes this rock assembly, stationed in the royal capital of Scandinavia.
It was the brainchild of the highly talented organist and pianist Carl Westholm (Avatarium, Candlemass, Carptree, Krux, Dec Burke, Jupiter Society, Leif Edling, The Doomsday Kingdom).

With the intentions of creating magic and musical witchcraft, Carl began slowly but surely to gather the missing pieces. He joined forces with the skilled heavy-hitting drummer Fredrik Haake (Badge, Meldrum, The Vanity Set, God Is My Co-Pilot, MOA, Roger Manning, Andy Summers, Sideburn), and together the two of them soon teamed up with one of the most accomplished bass players ever created on Swedish ground, Johan Niemann (Evergrey, Therion, Mind’s Eye, Xorigin, Moonstone Project, Tears Of Anger).
