Universe (5)

Swedish heavy metal band active from 1982 to 1988. In 2018 reformed with new vocalist under the name Universe Infinity.

Universe Infinity started as Universe in 1982 in Upplands Väsby, Sweden, where hard rock ruled the streets.
The members hailed from several different local bands. After leaving the band Moon, Michael Kling, who founded the band WC in the late 70's together with John Norum, became one of Universe’s founding members.
Hasse Hagman, who played in Joey Tempest's first band, along with Anders Wetterström and Per Nilsson, all came from the band Twilight.
Once Universe got their hands on keyboard player Fredrik Kriström and singer Kjell Wallen, the band was complete.
They played diligently for a couple of years all over Sweden, opening for Nazareth, among many other gigs.
In 1985, the band released its self-titled debut album with songs like "Rollin’ On", "Stories from the Old Days", and "Strong Vibrations".
In 1986, Kjell Wallen left the band on good terms following creative differences and was subsequently replaced by Janne Åström.
With Janne as the new frontman, the band focused fully on a follow-up to their debut album. Several demos were recorded but never ended up in the right hands.
The band dissolved in early 1988 and then had a short reunion for a final big show later that year.
