220 Volt  


220 Volt was one of the earlier Swedish metal bands that formed during the NWOBHM movement, following in the footsteps of Heavy Load (for whom these guys opened at least once). The band formed in the late 70's and after several years of gigging had built enough of a following to win a major label contract, quite rare for metal bands anywhere at that time. They put out a several albums in the early to mid 80's before initially disbanding around 1992, reuniting many years for some anniversary gigs and, eventually, the Made In Jamtland live album in 2005. As evidenced on their early material, their style mixed a bit of NWOBHM rawness with hard rock accessibility. Finally, in early 2013 came the news that the band was back in business.
