State of Salazar started in 2010 by five students from the Malmö Academy of Music who wanted to play rock music made for the big arenas. The singer and songwriter, Marcus Nygren, began thinking of the concept of having a band like State of Salazar in 2009 when he wrote a couple of songs that did not fit his metal based band 8-Point Rose. State of Salazar kept a pretty low profile the first two years with a few gigs and recording demo tracks.When they released their debut EP ”Lost my Way” in the summer of 2012, it spread fast in magazines and blogs and created a flood of praise. The Swedish quintet received a lot of positive critique from all over the world during a very short period of time. “This is something that can grow really big.” “...State Of Salazar will undoubtedly be one of the highlights of the genre.” “…this EP is an extremely polished piece of art...” “The performances and the production are superb…” And so on.The EP release was followed up by entering the rehearsal room straight away to work on new songs for a planned debut album called “All The Way”. In the beginning of 2013 State of Salazar signed with the Italian record company Frontiers Records. "I think this is an amazing opportunity for us in State of Salazar and I can’t think of a better record company for us to sign with.", said guitar player Johan Thuresson at the time, while singer Marcus Nygren added: "To be able to release our first full length album with Frontiers is simply a dream come true. I can’t wait for you all to hear these great new songs we’re working on. You don’t want to miss this one when it hits the stores!”State of Salazar chose to work with Markus Nilsson (A.C.T, Andromeda, Royal Republic, Deville) as a co-producer, recording- and mixing engineer for the album “All The Way”. The whole process of recording and mixing took place in Sunnanå Studio and lasted for one year. ”This amount of time in the studio made it possible for us to develop our sound and actually find out who we are, musically as a group.”, says bass player Johannes Hansson.Fascination Street Studios was chosen for the mastering, with Tony Lindgren (Paradise Lost, Kreator, Enslaved, Katatonia) behind the controls. For the artwork State of Salazar decided to work with Emil Nyström at Emil Media, who’s a talented photographer and his earlier released series with his daughter was a great inspiration for the artwork.The result is an album with a lot more band feeling to it. Where every instrument and musical contribution have been worked with more thoroughly, and this has gained a more clean and high class sound. The songs on this album have been written and arranged with the idea that; more is always more! The epic songs are more epic, the heavier songs are even heavier, the groovy songs are a lot more groovy and the smooth songs are definitely really smooth.Considering bands such as Toto, Queen, Journey, Survivor and especially Bill Conti and Vince DiCola have influenced them, State of Salazar have a lot to prove. But they handle all this pressure with their honor intact and their heads held high. There is no mistaking that the band delivers “feel good” music, and it is no wonder, since one of the biggest influences is “training montage” music. This is just one of many reasons why State of Salazar actually stands out from many of the other bands in the same genre.State of Salazar is not a retro band, or a walk down memory lane. They write songs and play music that strives forward and not backwards. Their songwriting, arranging and instrumental performance show that this is a band that wants to develop and contribute to the melodic rock genre. State of Salazar is here to stay.
