Sometimes in life you have to make a change. And sometimes you have to make a whole bunch of changes.

So it is that JIRM is born and stands where once stood Jeremy Irons And e Ratgang Malibus.

Having dropped the cumbersome moniker, the Swedish heavy rockers embark on a new era with Surge Ex Monumentis – marked as much by a tightening of sound as name.

For their rst record as JIRM, the Stockholm-based four-piece of vocalist/guitarist Karl Apelmo, guitarist Micke Pettersson, bassist Viktor Källgren, and drummer Henke Persson cast o the shackles of expectation entirely. eir style is no less expansive, but it’s become entirely their own, a driving mind meld between psychedelia, classic metal, heavy rock, and individualized realms beyond. Surge Ex Monumentis brims with newfound energy at the same time it benets from the lessons JIRM have learned since rst getting together in 2004 and releasing albums like Elefanta (2009), Bloom (2011) and Spirit Knife (2014), a record Mass Movement crowned, “a blissful mixture of Soundgarden at their grooviest and Pink Floyd...a terric album of sunny day, top down, cruising music.” With as much progressive force as raw sweat behind them, JIRM has never been more themselves than they are on Surge Ex Monumentis, and even as they redene who they are and what they do as a band, they remain singularly powerful in their delivery and completely unmistakable. e seven-track oering was captured at Puch Studios in Stockholm, Sweden, mixed by Oskar Lindberg at Svenska Grammofonstudion in Gothenburg, Sweden and mastered by Chris Gooseman at Baseline Audio Labs in Ann Arbor, Michigan.


"Dark Rock"... Where elements from the 70s and 80s hard rock and occult/shock rock is weaved together to a personal sound and style. Romantic and melancholicmelodies get a grotesque edge from the scary and obscure face of rock music.Silhouette's debut Die the Fire which is released on November 13th, containsof six tracks that unfolds in a dynamic explosion of psychedelic details, long freaky pieces and a great interaction between lapsteel guitar and true hammond rock organ.Die the Fire was recorded during winter 2013 in a rented summer cottage surrounded by cold, barren dunes close to the North Sea. During the recording there was also DIY ongoing, which was everything from technics and production to practical things as dragging gear and setting everything up. The recording was performed partially separately but all drum and bass is recorded together like the track The Great Orange Sky which was recorded live with the full band.The release was intended to be an EP with a bit more stuffing than normal EPs. The choice of songs on the record was made based on the opportunity to present the listener with a wide range of silhouettes, different musical themes and shades.Lyrically it stretches widely but the general atmosphere is carried by melancholic and bleak themes. Silhoutte grapples with chaotic forces and actions in life and tries to express this through lyrics. Realisation of and uncertainty in relation to life and death, magic and general supernatural and astrological phenomenons are all topics that underpin the bands music.On stage, Silhouettes universe is presented effectively and atmospherically. The dark and occult themes are effectively in play together with the band's hard, atmospherically full and melodious progressive sound. The bands first live appearance was when they opened Metal Magic Festival, Fredericia, in the summer of 2014. Besides this the band has performed Festiwal Legend Rocka,music competition in Poland of the summer 2014 summer and have also performed at various shows during 2015 such as the Mono Goes Metal festival and Kolding Kulturnat.During 2016/17 the band made alot of exciting shows, counting support for Dewolff at Schaubude Kiel in Germany, a 12 day European Tour in May 2016, and several well known locations in Denmark afterwards ie: Pumpehusets Byhave/Vinterbyhaven and "Blastbeasts" "TheNewShitShowcase". Silhouette has thus far delivered hard hitting performances during 2017. Proving the continueasion of making Silhouette a better, at shows such as Metal Cafe in Kolding, and Metal Magic Zero. In the summer of 2017. Silhouette, made up by Tobie (lead vocal, bass) Tommie (drummer, vocal) Stefan (guitar, lapsteel, vocal) and Eric (organ/keys, guitar, vocal), started backin 2012 when Tobie and Tommie got together and started writing songs. It is a band with a common background in Fredericia and Kolding, they are all friends who are gathered around a journey of the soul and an idea of how rock music should sound and be interpreted.
