Bass player Karl Johansson remembers the shooting day: “It was a freakin’ fun day ´shooting this music video! Patric Ullaeus is such a great guy and a true professional. The whole area where we were filming was beautifully spooky and super cold hahahaha”.

Nick Johansson (guitar) adds: “I think this song (We Will Rise) will be perfect to use as our first single because it has all the musical elements that represents TUNGSTEN. It’s guitar driven and heavy but, still melodic and somewhat mystical.”

Anders Johansson (drums: “There are so many bands today playing great stuff but often they tend to sound a bit similar. We wanted to be a bit different to break thru the media noise. We adapted a vibe that we think is a bit special for this song. Using Patric, that I personally worked with before in a HammerFall video recording (One more time), was the obvious choice. He is full of energy and ideas.” 

Mike Andersson (vocals): “This was one of the last songs composed for the album. I was totally in trance when I listened to it the first time after receiving it from Nick (who wrote the song). It was such a great feeling to write the lyric and work with the vocals. The intro is so mystical and enchanting… ´choosing this song as first single was a unanimous decision.”

TUNGSTEN was formed in 2016 by drummer AndersJohansson (ex HAMMERFALL, ex YNGIEW J. MALMSEEN’S RISING FORE) after his sons Karl and NickJohansson had let him listen to some songs they had composed together. Anders“I really liked the songs. My sons are of course younger than me, and the songs were modern metal, like something I could never come up with. At the same time, I could hear melodies that reminded me of Nordic folk music that made me think of the past. The overall impression was catchy heavy metal with both past and future present. I asked Karl and Nick if they wanted to join me in a band and play these songs with me, and I’m happy that they accepted”.
With drums (Anders), guitars (Nick) and bass (Karl), and newly composed songs, TUNGSTEN asked MikeAndersson (CLOUDSCAPE, ex PLANET ALLIANCEFULLFORCE) to do vocals. Mike has a powerful voice and a varied style of singing and was a perfect fit to TUNGSTEN’s music.

“WE WILL RISE”
The recording of TUNGSTEN’s debut album »We Will Rise« took place in the summer of 2018. Drums were recorded at Heptagonstudios and guitars and bass at Harmstudios. Vocals and choirs later added by Mike»We Will Rise« is produced and mixed by NickJohansson.
The music on TUNGSTEN’s debut album has influences from the different backgrounds of the members. AndersJohansson is one of the most skilled and experienced drummers in the metal world with a background in listening to DEEP PURPLE and RAINBOW, but he also has strong influences from jazz and he plays upright bass. The musical talent was passed on to Karl and Nick who praises bands like RAMMSTEIN and MESHUGGAH. Being from a later generation, they bring modernity and current trends to the music. Mike enjoys a wide variety of bands, from BEE GEES to MESHUGGAH, and listens a lot to different singing styles which contributes to the melodic and varied singing on »We Will Rise«.  
The lyrics on TUNGSTEN’s »We Will Rise« also deals with both past and present. Some of them are about fiction and fantasy and tells stories of ancient wars, knights and heroic heroes, whilst others are more realistic and describes everyday life with drama, passion and sorrow, in today’s world.

ARISING EMPIRE
ARISINGEMPIRE and MarkusStaiger, who is responsible for the success of many bands, loved the album »We Will Rise« and a contract between ARISINGEMPIRE and TUNGSTEN was signed in spring 2019. The record company decided to launch »We Will Rise« later in 2019.
The artwork for »We Will Rise«, as well as the TUNGSTEN logotype, were made by the legendary AndreasMarshall who is known for being the creator behind album covers for bands such as BlindGuardianObituaryand Hammerfall. Andreas also created “Volfram”, the man on the album cover who is holding a guiding lantern and a battle axe. The layout for the »We Will Rise« album was put together by RainerKalwitz.
TUNGSTEN recorded three music videos with well-known music video creator PatricUllaeus. The first one to be released was the title track ‚We Will Rise‘.
