LACK ROSE are a melodic hard rock/metal band from Sweden,
with a style of music that has stayed consistent through all

Sweden, between the releases of five Albums.
BLACK ROSE have appeared on the bill for festivals and headlining gigs; been support act to bands like FATE, THE POODLES, MIKE TRAMP, PAIN OF SALVATION, NOCTURNAL RITES, SOUL SIGN (Yngwie-members); and performed gigs as backing band, at different occasions, for KEE MARCELLO (Europe) and JAN JOHANSEN (Ignition, Swedish Eurovision Song Contest winner) and JAKOB SAMUEL (The Poodles).
In the summer of 2019 the band crossed over to the international music scene, completing a Baltic Tour including countries like Latvia and Lithuania.
The latest album ”A Light in the Dark” contains 10 tracks in the melodic hard rock/metal vein. The trademark sound of BLACK ROSE, built on recognizable distinctive riffs, melodic/catchy and powerful choruses, are even more prominent on this release.
The album covers a wide range of songs, from fast, hard driving to mid-paced and heavier tunes.
Two videos, for the songs ‘Hear the Call’ and ‘Sands of Time’, were produced by Mats Vassfjord (220 Volt, Grand Design etc.).
