Ablaze My Sorrow is a melodic death metal band from Falkenberg, Sweden. The group formed in 1993, released three full-length albums for No Fashion Records through several lineup changes, and received significant exposure among metal press outlets before disbanding in August 2006.

History[edit]

The group first came together in 1993, featuring original members Martin Quist on vocals and guitar, Magnus Carlsson on guitar, Anders Brorsson on bass, and Fredrik Wenzel on drums.[1] The group recorded a demo before drummer Alex Bengtsson replaced Wenzel and guitarist Roger Johansson joined the group, both playing on their 1996 debut for No Fashion Records entitled If Emotion Still Burns.[2][3] After the release of the record, Quist and Johansson left the group, and were replaced by Fredrik Arnesson on vocals and Dennie Linden on guitar in time for their follow-up effort, 1997's The Plague.[4][5][6][7] After The Plague, the group went on a temporary hiatus, and replaced Fredrik Arnesson with new vocalist Kristian Lönnsjö and electronic bagpipist Chris Kojali. [1] In 2001, they returned with their third album, Anger, Hate and Fury.[8][9][10][11] The cover of the album featured artwork by Niklas Sundin, a renowned album cover artist.[12] In 2004, the group played the Swedish 2000 Decibel festival.[13] On August 16, 2006, the group announced it was breaking up. In January 2013 the band reunited.
