Bio:

Swedish band Spellbound formed in 1983 by Hasse Fröberg, Thomas Thomson, Alf Strandberg, Ola Strandberg and JJ Marsh. The initial recordings are to be found on a compilation album called "Swedish Metal". This was the record that first brought the group to international attention. The debut album "Breaking the Spell" was released in 1984 and was hailed as one of the best records of 1984 by Kerrang Magazine: “Spellbound are without doubt the best metal band Scandinavia has ever produced…in fact, on an international scale they’re one of the most commercial HM bands I’ve hear a fluently melodic yet ballsy and powerful outfit whose debut album embraces both colossal potential and substantial delivery…”Spellbound attracted interest not only in the UK and other parts of Europe, "Breaking the Spell" was also released in South America and the first single Lovetaker was one of the tracks on the "ROCKHARD"-compilation album released in Australia together with bands like Deep Purple, Iron Maiden ,Whitesnake and AC/DC. Japans leading rock magazine Burrn showed great interest in the band with several articles and the album raised the import charts.In 1985 the band went to London to put down tracks for their second album. The group emerged from the studio with some superb material on the album "Rockin..Reckless". Once again the album got enormous good reviews in Kerrang: “Spellbound, a swanky set of sparkling Swedish sorcerers, this album is a cracker - with a message inside which reads: Buy me!”. A video for the first single, the title track "Rockin..Reckless" was shot and the band embarked on a domestic tour to support the new album.In 1990 the band members went their separate ways but in 1995 both "Breaking the Spell" and "Rockin.. Reckless" were released on CD and interest for the band rose again. In 1997 previously unreleased material was released on "Spellbound 1997". The CD included 13 songs among them the progressive rock opus "Paradise Ride". This song would also appeared on "The encyclopedia of Swedish Hard Rock & Heavy Metal" compiled by Janne Stark, among with other Swedish acts like Yngwie J Malmsteen, Electric Boys and Europe.In the early 2001 the band met for discussions for a possible reunion, yet this time without guitarist Alf Strandberg. A promo CD was recorded and released in 2002, including 3 songs: "Drowning", "My poor brain" and "Psychonaut".The band broke up in 1989, Fröberg forming SOLID BLUE and dabbling in covers act HIGHWAY STARS. Whilst Strandberg has worked as a session musician since leaving the group guitarist Jocke 'J.J.' Marsh recorded an instrumental album for a French record label and activated a fun club act FROG. He would subsequently join ex-DEEP PURPLE frontman GLENN HUGHES solo band, first performing with the star at his wedding reception. Marsh featured on the 'Addiction' album and teamed up with Hughes once more in 2002. J.J. Marsh cut his first solo album 'Music From Planet Marsh' under the project heading ALBATROSS, first issuing it at concerts on GLENN HUGHES' Spring 2005 European tour.

Album:

The debut album "Breaking the Spell" was released in 1984 and was hailed as one of the best records of 1984 by Kerrang Magazine: “Spellbound are without doubt the best metal band Scandinavia has ever produced…in fact, on an international scale they’re one of the most commercial HM bands I’ve heard a fluently melodic yet ballsy and powerful outfit whose debut album embraces both colossal potential and substantial delivery…” Prior to this the band had also participated with two tracks on a Sonet compilation, suitably entitled "Swedish Metal". Spellbound was actually signed by Sonet after having won a band-competition where a record-deal was first price. But let's start from the beginning.In May 1983 the bass-player Thomas Thompson and singer Hasse Froberg met in the northern Swedish town Boden. They decided to form a band, found Alf Strandberg and his brother Ola. As a four-piece they recorded their first demo. In December 1983 guitarist Jocke "JJ" Marsh was added to the line-up. The year after, in April, they participated and won the band-competition that lead to the deal with Sonet Records. In the summer of '84 the aforementioned compilation-album featuring Spellbound, Universe, Motherlode and Shed was released. After having spent three weeks in Studio Park the band's debut "Breaking the spell" saw the light of day in July 1984. The album was highly praised in English metal-bible Kerrang! Magazine and received great reviews in the influential Japanese magazine Burrn among others!This one is pretty cool! The songs rocks like a real bad mofo! This is the one to get - Rockin´ Reckless never reched the same level.Cool hardrockin´ songs.Melodic but in the Van Halen and Leppardstyle (pyromania-era)and not in the style of lame bands like Bon Jovi and Poison.
