  1. Fireside

    Fireside is a Grammis Award-winning rock band that formed in the Swedish Hardcore scene in the early 1990s. After finding moderate success as a Post-grunge/Alternative metal band, yet tiring of playing half-filled venues, Fireside adopted an Emo rock/Pop punk sound in 1998. In 2000, with the release of Elite, the band took a more experimental approach to rock, but 2003's All You Had saw the band return to Emo rock/Pop punk. The band's official website is no longer active and the status of the band is currently unknown.
