Musical artist

Stonelake is a heavy metal band from Lund, Sweden, formed in 1984. They are currently unsigned.

History

In August 1984 guitarist Jan Åkesson and singer Peter Grundström got to know each other after a mutual concert. Jan played guitar in a band called Ravage and Peter was a singer in a band called Whitelight. Their meeting led to the conclusion of Jan's work with Ravage and he became a new member in Whitelight in the fall the same year.

The musical style of Whitelight was initially melodic hard rock. Main influences among many where: Deep Purple, Led Zeppelin and Bad Company, but later on, "newer" bands (English and American) such as Whitesnake, Van Halen, Journey, Toto, Riot, Wrabit and Dokken. The band did many gigs and demos, in hope of getting a proper record deal, but no such offer was ever made.

In 1987 Jan decided to leave Whitelight and went his own way. He wanted to try his own wings with a tougher; more guitar oriented style of music. Peter stayed in Whitelight but Jan wasn't replaced with any new member, instead band name was changed to Kee Avenue. Jan established a new band called Why Not and later he also established new bands like Perfect Stranger and Dr Blue. These bands did really successful gigs and recordings in different places.

Kee Avenue split up in 1991 after the bass player and the keyboard player left the band. The band never found anyone tho replace them. After this breakup Peter played with different band, mostly cover bands. He kept on writing songs. 15 years after the two played together, Jan called Peter on the phone. He thought that it was time for a "reunion". After a good meal, a few beers, the interest grew to once more form a project. The result of this was Stonelake.

Style

Stonelake mix guitardriven riffs with soaring vocal melodies.
