Zebeck is an instrumental Metal/Fusion project led by guitarist Thomas Frisk.
The first band was formed in Malmö, Sweden in May 2007 with Jens Wall on bass and his brother Hannes Wall on drums.
In late 2009, the band recorded a 10-track debut-album entitled "Emancipation".
However, Jens and Hannes were asked to leave the band shortly thereafter when we realized we were drifting apart musically.
In the fall of 2010, drummer Rickard Langnesund joined Zebeck, followed by bass-player Anders Lindskog in early 2011.
The first album was released in May 2011 when Zebeck's second line-up made its live debut.
In december 2011, Anders was replaced on bass by Yeison Leidhammar.
Since 2013, Zebeck has been docked in Stockholm undergoing several more member changes, including Demian Andersen on Bass. During this time material for a second album has been taking shape and Zebeck is now ready to set sails to reclaim its mediterranean origins in Nice, France.
Stay tuned for the coming album with Pierre Dor on drums and Alexandre Bedetti on Bass!
