The Story of Cell 9:
Early 2015 in Sollentuna just outside of Stockholm, Torbjörn was, as always writing new material and
had his longtime friend and old bandmate from the 80´s, Niklas, coming over to fix one of his basses.
He was asked to bring a working bass in order to put down a track or two on songs in the works.
What they did not know was that it was the beginning of CELL 9.
A little later the first rehearsal was done with Thomas Weinesjö on drums, the trio was in place and the
recordings took place immediately in this live environment.
Both Thomas and Torbjörn were former members of Veni Domine, also joined forces in bands such as
Audiovision and Nubian Rose. Bands like Grand Stand, Saviour Machine, Hero, etc. had one or two of
the brothers on board. Niklas on a side track during this time playing with various acts around and
switched on and Torbjörn feels fortunate to be reunited with his old-time friend.
The recording sessions took place at their rehearsal place which is room number 9 aka “CELL9”,
where Veni Domine recorded their last efforts as well, produced and mixed by Torbjörn alongside
with Thomas and Niklas.
From a producer’s point of view, Torbjörn adds, “I wanted to have the feeling
of a band playing. A little old school perhaps but the foundation is “live” takes and some
overdubbing. This is where we´re coming from, a live set.”
In September 2016 they had their first gigs in Jönköping, Stockholm and Västerås supporting Narnia on their ”mini tour” celebrating their 20th anniversary as a band. CELL 9 will look for gigs and keep on recording as they go along.
