In October 2008 the band played their first chords, after Hasse had handpicked musicians he thought would suit his idea of a group, namely Thomsson on bass and Ola Strandberg on drums. These two gentlemen had played with Hasse during the eighties in the Swedish hardrock band Spellbound. To complete the band, he also hired new faces Kjell Haraldsson on keyboards and leadguitarist Anton Lindsjö. The singer/guitarplayer/songwriter already had a handful of songs he wanted to record, among them “Only my Blood”, “Fallen Empire” and “Song for July”. The band worked on the material up until May when they entered Mountain High Studios in Tierp, which actually is a school they managed to rent for five days during the Ascension Day holidays. Sound engineer Petrus Königsson had scouted and picked the place for its “perfect” studio and control rooms. As Hasse said: “We just put up our amps and drums and Petrus put up everything he brought for the occasion like microphones, preamps, computers and God knows what and off we went. I knew it was some sort of gamble to record like this instead of a real studio but at the time I was looking for something else. I had this vision of us doing like the big bands in the seventies, who sometimes were recording in hotels, castles, cinemas you name it, with mobile studios to get away from the usual studio routine. Now when I listen to the result I feel like a winner, as I think it’s a strong debut album”. “FuturePast” (Reingold Records) was released in August 2010 and was followed by gigs in Sweden, Norway, Germany, Holland and Belgium.
