Heavy Load is widely regarded as the band that started the whole Swedish heavy metal wave with their first album in 1978. In addition, they are regarded as the first viking metal band in the world. The band was founded in the depths of midwinter 1974-75 by the two brothers Ragne Wahlquist (vocals, keyboard and guitar) and Styrbjörn Wahlquist (vocals and drums). In 1978, Heavy Load released their first album entitled "Full Speed at High Level", and after expanding the line up with a second guitarist, they founded their own recording facility, the famous Thunderload Studios, along with their own label, Thunderload Records. On their own label, they released timeless Heavy Load classics, such as "Metal Conquest" (1981), "Death Or Glory "(1982) and "Stronger Than Evil" (1983).
Finally, these albums will be reissued by No Remorse Records, and after the deluxe reissue of "Stronger Than Evil" in 2018, the time has come for "Death Or Glory".
