Their biggest influences include Kiss, Deep Purple, Whitesnake, Thin Lizzy, UFO, Black Sabbath, Rainbow, Dio and Queen.Seven original albums released so far.Their latest album Sane & Insanity (Europe/Japan 2011) went straight to the No.1 spot on the U.S Import chart NEH and reached the "Album of the Year" list at the world's most important site for hardrock, melodicrock.com. In Japan they have a really strong following ever since their debut album charted there in the 90´s.Their song "Showstopper" from the Detonator album was featured in the EA Games video game NHL 2003.They have done several headline tours and also shared stages and tours with bands such as Magnum, Nazareth, Oliver/Dawson Saxon, Michael Schenker Group, Pretty Maids among others.Some of the festival appearances include the major Sweden Rock Festival (attendance record+ named “best band of the festival” by UK Magazine Powerplay), Firefest (England), Rock Over Munich (Germany), Hard Rock Hell (Spain) and Stockholm Rock Out.

Album:

"No.1" is the debut album by Swedish melodic hard rock band "M.ill.ion" originally released in 1992.Having established a firm presence in melodic hard rock over the past five years, the story of "M.ill.ion" goes actually back to the late 80's at which point they were a more glamorous outfit still just as melodic and hard rocking. The line up features lead singer Hasse Johansson, guitarists CT Rohdell and Stefan Wetterlind, bassist BJ Laneby, keyboardist Markus Ydkvist and drummer Roland Christoffersson.The sound of "M.ill.ion" is built on bombastic guitars, melodic keyboards, big drumming and dynamic choruses. I would say that "No.1" draws elements from both the American and European school of melodic hard rock/glam metal sounding very much like a mixture of "Bangalore Choir" and "Europe". One also has to address that "No.1" is a totally uncompromised hard rock record with no shortage of guitar shredding/solos and drum fills (which would often be reduced on albums of that period).It is also important to note that the quality of "No.1" does not slip at any of its 12 songs, all having memorable choruses and infectious opening melodies. Personal favorites include the classic `Sign of Victory', "Lovers", "Live it or leave it" and "Hold me, touch me". Overall the "M.ill.ion" debut is a great choice for fans of "Europe", "Bangalore Choir", "Lion" and "Lionsheart".M.ill.ion was formed like this: After an exciting visit to London and it's Rock 'n' Roll world, bassist B.J. Laneby returned to Sweden with a decision that it's time to form a new band, with the ambition to make it beyond local stardom. He asks lead guitarist Stefan Wetterlind to join and they start looking for hungry musicians with starquality (Source: Welcome To M.ill.ion official site). Raise your glasses high, or isn't it the perfect motive to start a band - be it Classic Metal, Power, Thrash, Black or FM Rock, I don't care? The eventually established band formed its own Million Music label and started rehearsing like nuts! The first demo received positive feedback, leading to various gigs in the Gothenburg area (and not only) and a second demo was on the way. Record deal offers were on the way, leading the band to a contract with Danish independent Bums label. It was time for the act's debut to be recorded in Denmark, additionally mixed in the world famous PUK Studios (Gary Moore, Judas Priest). Let there be… No.1!M.ill.ion hit with full force, no doubt! In the vein of all-eras Europe, early Talisman and with keyboard additions like Narnia at times, this Swedish band really presents full dynamite, a perfect example of Swedish Hard Rock. You don't need to know more: you can imagine the production, you can smell the musicians' skills, you can fantasize Hasse Johansson's vocal harmonies…If your record collection already features The Final Countdown, Total Control, Best In Show, Talisman and Danger In This Game then grab this album! Grab it fast! If not, it's always a nice try to get familiar with this Scandinavian gem!
