Ebony Tears Biography

Minor players in the New Wave of Swedish d**h Metal of the 1990s, Stockholm, Sweden's Ebony Tears were formed in 1996 by guitarist Conny Jonsson and vocalist Johnny Wranning, following the latter's unsuccessful turn at the helm of the even more obscure Miscreant. Then followed three technically competent but creatively rather average LPs: 1998's Tortura Insomniae (featuring ba**ist Thomas Thun and drummer Iman Zolgharnian), 1999's A Handful of Nothing (with ba**ist Lennart Glenberg and drummer Richard Evensand), and 2001's Evil as Hell (introducing yet another new ba** player in Peter Kahm). The final of these albums saw Ebony Tears linking up with Century Media, and replacing the melodic persuasion of the first two efforts with a more brutal d**h metal style, but also proved to be their last attempt when it too failed to advance their floundering career. Parallel distractions with the thrash- and hardcore-tinged Dog Faced Gods didn't help keep them focused, and in the aftermath of Ebony Tears, drummer Evansand enjoyed the most success, as an in-demand sideman with Therion, Soilwork, and Chimaira. ~ Eduardo Rivadavia, All Music Guide
