Since their humble beginnings in Karlstad, Sweden, back in 2011, Eyes Wide Open have become one of the forerunners in the Swedish metal scene. With clear melodies and catchy riffs they deliver an immense sound as they lead the way in the melodic death metal genre.
Spring 2012 saw the release of their debut EP Revelations which was followed by their first album Aftermath. Their music is aired on radio channels globally and Eyes Wide Open have gained a loyal following of 50K+ fans and counting!
The band built on this success with the release of the single “Blindead” which they supported with multiple performances across Europe including the headliner slot at the Swedish Metal Invasion tour in 2016.
2016/2017, E.W.O come back to life with the highly anticipated third and final part of their pre-announced album trilogy. Erik Engstrand has stepped up as the band’s new vocalist to cement Eyes Wide Open as a cutting edge entity. With Erik leading the way and the band at it’s peak they are about to unleash a full force melodic death metal album.
E.W.O reach for the sky and extend their hand to the world… And So It Begins! Which, coincidentally, is the name of the new album – due out on September 1st. In the meantime, enjoy this cracking old-school computer game style lyric video for the song “Death of Technology”.
