Earlier this year the four members Daniel Myhr, Daniel Mullback, Oskar Montelius and Rikard Sundén decided to leave the band SABATON. But the will to play music never left them so they decided to start a new band. It didn't take long before they had completed the line-up with a bassplayer and vocalist. Stefan "Pizza" Eriksson (VOLTURYON), a longtime friend of the guys since the SABATON-era and Patrik Johansson (ASTRAL DOORS), one of the most respected singers in the genre joined the forces and the band was founded. So when you mix six guys, equally divided between the two rivaling cities of Borlänge and Falun...you get CIVIL WAR!
