FRAME from Gothenburg – Sweden. Hardrock with influences from the 70’s until contemporary. Shaping a unique sound since 1997.
FRAME was originally formed by Robert Westin (vocals/bass), Kristian Kallio (guitars) and Andreas ”Ragge” Ragnarsson (drums) who played together since the early 90’s. The debut album ”Framing our Audience” from 1998 received great reviews from local newspapers and fanzines.
FRAME shortly after expanded to a quartet and released the EP ”A Loco Motive” in the beginning of the new Millenium. The following album ”Closer to the myth than zero” (2003), released on the bands own label Perpetual burn, received a great underground following much thanks to the video from their first single ”Forever Train” that was included in the cult PS3/Xbox game ”The Darkness”. The soundtrack also featured other top acts as: Marilyn Manson and Mike Patton. After extensive gigging around Sweden the band went into the studio again to record the EP ”Bohus Sessions” that was recorded in the legendary Bohus Studios with producer Tobbe Lindell (Mustasch, Europe etc.)
In 2015 Frame released their third EP ”Undead” after which they recruited bassist/producer Johannes Olsson to the lineup. With newfound creativity, writing sessions begun for a new fullength album. The new album ”Circles” released on 25th of May 2019 is undeniably FRAMEs strongest effort so far. It is also the first FRAME album released on Vinyl.
