  1. Heed

    Heed is a Swedish heavy metal band founded in 2004 by ex-Lost Horizon members Daniel Heiman and Fredrik Olsson. They were joined by drummer Mats Karlsson and bass player Jörgen Olsson, and began recording on their debut album The Call. It was released in Japan in October 21, 2005 and in Europe the 14th of June the next year. When The Call was completed, Jörgen and Mats left Heed because their musical visions and goals collided with those of the founding members. Fredrik and Daniel started looking for new members and soon found Tommy Larsson and Ufuk Demir. They also added a second guitarist, Martin Andersson.
