When the night fell dark once in late summer of 2009, an idea secretly sneaked into the mind of Lars Tornberg, full-blooded musician since his early days.
Already having participated in lots of different music projects, it now seemed to be just the right time to found his very own band – and to create something that would move the people, something that would guide them to meet their innermost self. That was the moment when „Saphenous“ was born.
What started out as a female fronted gothic rock project, characterized by rather soft tunes with a majority of German lyrics, soon began to change its shape. Caught in the tides of time which helped the music to evolve and to unfold, the sound of the seven-headed band slowly merged with other musical influences, covering the different backgrounds of every band member. By reconciling different genres as thrash, folk, death, power and classical music, the „rock sound“ had to give way to a more „metallic“ style, which now leads the band to call its genre melodic metal. Some might even find similarities to the early work of bands like Nightwish, Within Temptation, Epica or Edenbridge, but it is and always will be paired with Saphenous' very own unique signature which makes every song special and every gig a memorable experience that shouldn't be missed.
