Lithium was formed in December 1998 in Stockholm, Sweden. The members, Johnny Hagel & Carl Nilsson have both been members of other bands in the past.
Johnny Hagel is more known with two of his former bands, Tiamat & Sundown. He was one half of Tiamat during their most successful period and he recorded and wrote material for both the Wildhoney and the Clouds album. With Wildhoney, Tiamat was nominated for the Swedish Grammy-award 1995 and with over 100.000 copies sold of Wildhoney and tours supported both Black Sabbath and Type O Negative as well as headline tours both in Europe and America, Tiamat established themselves as one of the biggest band from Sweden. With Sundown he recorded and co-produced the album Design 19, and they supported Paradise Lost on their European tour -97.
Carl Nilsson has been the driving force of the band Moth and they have been one of the leading industrial bands in Sweden.
Lithium made their live debut at a sold out Tantogården/Stockholm and two weeks after that they played in front of 25.000 at the M'era Luna festival in Hildesheim/Germany.
Lithium has finished the recording of their first album. The album is recorded in the Modern Art Studio (Therion - Secret of the ruins) and it is produced by Johnny Hagel/Carl Nilsson and mixed by Sami Karpinen (former Therion drummer).
Expect an album full of diversity and superb song writing. The ambition is to create industrial music with a futuristic spirit…
