Ablaze My Sorrow

A melodic death metal band from Falkenberg, Sweden.

Ablaze My Sorrow was formed in the summer of 1993 by Magnus Carlsson (guitar) and Martin Quist (guitar/vocals). Within a few weeks Anders Brorsson (bass) and Fredrik Wenzel (drums) joined the band to complete the line-up. They released their demo "For Brereavement We Cried" in the fall of 1993 and shortly after Fredrik Wenzel left and was replaced by Alex Bengtsson. After a few months the band entered Höök Studio and recorded the promo track "The Song Of The Dancing Sins" which was an aggressive yet melodic Death Metal song.

In the end of 1994 No Fashion records contacted the band, but nothing happened until January next year where they recorded their second demo, "Demo 95" which contained three tracks. After the release Martin Quist wanted to focus only on his vocals, so a new guitarist was brought into the band, Roger Johansson. They were also signed to No Fashion records. Same year, during the summer they entered Musik Maffian Studios and recorded their debut album "If Emotion Still Burns" which also had the three tracks from their second demo tape. After the release Roger Johansson left the band but was quickly replaced by Dennie Linden.

In 1997 they started rehearsing for their second album, but Martin Quist left the band. Luckily the band found a new vocalist, Fredrik Arnesson, and together they made "The Plague" which was released in 1997. Magnus Carlsson left the band right after the release and was replaced by Anders Lundin. After a few months the band decided to take a break.

A year later the band started to rehearse again, with Magnus Carlsson and Martin Qvist back in the band. But Martin Qvist grew tired of it all and left the band again. Once again a new vocalist joined the band, Kristian Lönnsjö. The band rehearsed a lot and really wanted to make it work.... and eventually recorded "Anger, Hate and Fury" which was released in 2002.

The band split up in 2006.

In 2013 Ablaze My Sorrow reformed with the same line up that recorded the third album ‘Anger, Hate and Fury’.
