MINDFUEL


Hailing from the rockin' land of Sweden, MINDFUEL is releasing their debut album “In Your Mind” on Blue Topaz Records. Combining elements of Hard Rock, Thrash and Power Metal, Mindfuel has created a new and undeniably awesome sound for rock fans around the world.

Due to the rising popularity of their sample tracks with radio and internet rock stations around the world the guys have hastened the release of their first album. Positive feedback includes comparisons to legends of rock and metal like Iron Maiden, Helloween, Testament, Dream Evil and Manowar.

The band, which includes Markus Kinell on guitars/bass, Magnus Westman on vocals and Magnus Göransson on drums, started as a project in February of 2008 when Markus and Magnus met through a mutual friend. Magnus agreed to put some vocals down on a song that Markus was working on and they fit perfectly with the music. After exploring their similar tastes in music and views for the direction of a possible band Magnus agreed to join the project full time. From there they recruited Manus Göransson, a drummer Markus had worked with a few years prior. When Magnus G joined all the pieces were in place and the three began churning out the incredible songs that would become their debut album under their new name... MINDFUEL!

Mindfuel invites you to listen to the masterpiece of 11 hard and melodic heavy metal songs that form the album "In Your Mind."
