The Band: Who are Pressure I hear you ask? Well if you had to tag them with a genre the one that fits best, then it’s ‘melodic rock’ but they’re so much more than that. Hailing from Stockholm, Sweden and with vocalist Olof Jönsson you can always guarantee soaring, athletic and committed vocals. Together with a twin guitar sound coming from songwriter and lead guitarist Simon “Siirpo” Forsell and Emil Salling. Their work often focuses and embraces the pressures felt from everyday existence. Their lyrics ably demonstrating that there are two sides to every story – the good and the bad. Every song has a double meaning and they truly see music as a tool to handle the different pressures thrown at us from the modern world.
The band began their journey together in 2018, and since then they’ve worked tirelessly developing their sound and live performance. Their aim? To make memories with their fans and to an epic musical soundtrack.
A quote that can summarize their lyrics is: “How can you tell a story about life if you haven’t dared to live life to its fullest! ”
Pressure is all about every story, every moment, every Pressure!
“They are pioneering what they are calling Story Metal, which is combining heavy metal with elements of melodic rock, with a lot of focus on vocals in a way to convey a story within their songs,” – First Angel Media
