220 VOLT DRUMMER GOES SOLO:
The formidable power pack behind the drums in bands like John Norum Band, Talisman, Zoom Club and of course 220 Volt,
now proves he's not only a drummer, he's also a great singer and song
writer, which he shows in his rootsy, yet fresh, heavy rock solo debut, a
five-track EP entitled Black Cloud.
Peter Hermansson has finally taken
the time to record a bunch of his own songs, in a rootsy, but still
fresh melodic hard rocking vein. Peter is handling lead vocals and
drums, while being backed up on guitar and bass by musicians such as Mats Karlsson (220 Volt), Fredrik Åkesson (Opeth), Johan Niemann (Therion, Mind's Eye, Evergrey), René Sebastian, Michael Hujanen and Janne Stark (Overdrive, Grand Design, Locomotive Breath, Constancia).
Peter Hermansson is foremost known for being the drummer in classic Swedish heavy rockers 220 Volt, with whom he has recorded eight albums (so far). Peter also played with melodic rockers Talisman, featuring the late Marcel Jacob, together with whom he also played in the classic first line-up of John Norum Band, on the album “Total Control”.
The line-up that recorded killer songs such as “Let Me Love You”, “Love
Is Meant To Last Forever” and “Someone Else Here”, the latter which
Hermansson also co-wrote with John Norum. Peter also co-wrote the song
“Counting On Your Love” which features Glenn Hughes (Deep Purple, Black
Sabbath, Black Country Communion) on vocals.
Peter has been highly prolific both as a song writer, singer and
drummer, as well as producer, where he has also worked with artists like
Annie For President, Sunaglare, Tomorrows Dream etc. Besides playing
drums in 220 Volt, he is handling both drums and vocals in the power
trio Zoom Club, also featuring renowned Swedish guitarist/writer Janne Stark and bassist/guitarist Michael Hujanen.
Career highlights for 220 Volt, also worth mentioning, are as support
on Nazareth's 1984 Scandinavian tour, AC/DC's 1986 Scandinavian tour
and recording with Max Norman (Ozzy Osbourne, Bad Company, Megadeth,
Uriah Heep etc) in New York.
