A doomy death metal band from the south of Sweden, THE GARDNERZ was formed in the middle of 2008 by Wilhelm. In late 2008 Francisco joined the band and our debut album started to take shape. A longtime friend of Francisco, Juan Pablo was recruited to do the drums and after a long time of searching for a vocalist Niclas stepped in to the picture. Commented the band: "Blending slow and heavy riffs with melodies distorted and clean, we try to create our own slice of metal. Taking influences from all over the musical spectra, but keeping a solid metal foundation. Mixing technicality with simplicity to get such a varied album as possible. The lyrics deal with philosophical ideas and random rants about the strange ways of man, covering topics such as: the fallacies of religion, the rat-race of our over-consuming life style, the hypocrisy found in the writing of history, how a seemingly insignificant event shapes a man's entire life." THE GARDNERZ inked a deal with Abyss Records recently. The band's debut album, "The System Of Nature", is due in early 2011. The album was mastered by Dan Swan at his Unisound studio.
