Past Five is a five-piece alternative metal band from Borås, Sweden. Since forming in 2015, the band has solidified themselves as a unique and exciting force to be reckoned with!
In 2016 things started to become really clear in terms of the direction they wanted to go creatively. Highly influenced by the early 2000’s alternative rock and metal, Past Five started incorporating several genre-crossing elements to their sound while still staying true to their musical roots. They also released their debut EP Somewhere Between Serenity & Rage, which was produced and mixed by the band themselves.
In 2019, the band had written a bunch of fiery new material, so they connected with producer Christian Silver (Dragonforce, Arch Enemy, Soilwork) who took up the helm and shortly thereafter they entered the infamous StudioMega in Varberg, Sweden to record their next release…
The resulting EP entitled 'Detox.' is (as the name suggests) a musical cleansing of a period of turmoil, despair, and self-destruction. The songs address different subjects ranging from addiction, to suicide, and ultimately a conquering of these toxic destructive situations and relationships. With a wide variety of musical influences this EP is a large step away from their previously more pop-punk oriented efforts. In Late 2019 they had lined up a deal with US-based label Eclipse Records for a worldwide release.
Detox. was released on May 8, 2020… prepare to be cleansed!
