Facebreaker were formed in 1999, following a conversation between Janne, Roberth, Mikael and Jonas. They had similar music tastes and decided to start a brutal and straight-forward metal band. A few rehearsal-sessions later they added lead guitarist Janos to their line-up. Facebreakers first demo “Use Your Fist” was recorded at a local studio in the beginning of the new millennium.
In March 2001 they went back to the studio to record a promo demo called “Hate and Anger”. 2002 U.K. based Rage of Achilles Records got hold of their promo and offered the band a deal. A Rage of Achilles compilation album called “Conquest For The Empire” was out in April, featuring Facebreaker along with other new signings on the label. In September Janos quit the band due to lack of time. Fortunately they knew a guitar-player named Mika and a line-up change took place.
In June 2003 Facebreaker’s promo demo “Hate and Anger” was released on seven-inch vinyl. In July the band entered Black Lounge Studios to record their first full-length album “Bloodred Hell”. “Boodred Hell” was released in the beginning of 2004. It achieved great reviews and feedback all around the world. Unfortunately Rage Of Achilles went out of business somewhere between late 2004 and early 2005 and “Bloodred Hell” was never given the right amount of exposure it deserved.
Without a record-deal Facebreaker made a new promo demo and started to work on new material. Facebreaker got several offers from interested labels but finally choose to work with Singapore based Pulverised Records. 2007a new record-deal was closed with Pulverised Records and in July the band went back to Jonas Kjellgrens Black Lounge Studios to record their second full-length album “Dead Rotten and Hungry”. 2008 Facebreaker released “Dead Rotten and Hungry” through Pulverised Records. The album is being licensed to Cyclone Empire for a limited edit. vinyl release. Facebreaker plays Party San Open Air in Germany and is getting enthusiastic feedback.
Facebreaker did their first European tour in 2009 and an amazing show at the With Full Force-Open Air Festival in Germany in front of more than 10,000 people. In September, “Bloodred Hell” is being re-released by Cyclone Empire with additional bonus tracks. A new worldwide record deal was signed with Cyclone Empire at the end of 2009.
On the first of January 2010 they started to record their third studio album called ”INFECTED”. This time they choose to work with Jonas Kjellgren at Black Lounge Studios and Peter Tägtgren at ABYSS studios.
“INFECTED” was released in October that same year. The release was followed by gigs and festivals all around Europe, and they did a massive show at the mighty Summer Breeze festival in 2011.
In 2012 they started to work on their upcoming fourth album “DEDICATED TO THE FLESH” and in January 2013 they entered Mr Plec’s The Panic Room Studios to record the drums. The rest was recorded in Slowly Rotting Studios and Crypt of Death Studios in their hometown Finspång and in Mars they went back to The Panic Room to do the mix and mastering. The result speaks for it self, a maximum assault of zombie death metal anger. Released in Europe 28.06.2013 through Cyclone Empire Records.
