A band so amazing, you won't wanna stop listening to their songs, you'll get addicted! The beautiful melodies are going to be stucked days in your head. Listen to "Losing You" and I must tell you, it makes me sing and scream along every time I listen to it. Not only Sweden's no. 1 band, but the best band in the world! Just feel bad they are underrated. They are trying to bring something new and people just say it's stupid. Just listen to them before you say anything! DbA rocks!
