Now based in NY, Swedish technical death metal band Armageddon are re-releasing their classic album Crossing the Rubicon later this year. Produced by Fredrik Nordström at Studio Fredman in Göteborg, Sweden, Armageddon’s debut album was originally released in May 1997. Celebrating its 20th anniversary, Crossing the Rubicon really generated waves when it came out, probably one of the accomplished Swedish metal debut album ever released , as Christopher remembers:
The creation of the whole project was a collaboration between me and Michael (Christopher’ brother now playing in Arch Enemy). We are both sci-fi fans. The album is a concept album about the destruction of the planet, and the escape and subsequent adventures of the earth’s survivors. Apart from the obvious metal influences, we were also looking towards bands like Yes and Rush for the conceptual progressive rock feel of the 70s—hence our decision to give each member a solo track. Michael and I were less than thrilled when the movie Armageddon came out a year after Armageddon’s debut. It was also a crap movie.
