Vocalist Bjorn Strid commented

I started playing hockey when I was six and stopped when I was sixteen. I played in a local team called Landskrona, which also featured current NHL athletes. I was chosen among three other players from my club to be a part of Skåne Team in 1994, which featured the best players from the southern region of Sweden. Slowly after that I picked up the guitar and was blown away by the kick playing music gave me. I left my hockey career behind me and focused 100 % on music but always looked back.

Hockey has always been a big part of my life and while living in Toronto for five years, I played a lot of “shinny”: beer league hockey. I also got the chance to get to know Nikolay Kulemin.”
