Heavy Load are a Heavy/Power Metal band from Sweden. They formed in 1976, as a trio, by the two brothers Ragne (vocals and guitar) and Styrbjörn Wahlquist (vocals and drums), together with bassist Michael Backlund.
In 1977 Heavy Load recorded their debut-album "Full Speed At High Level" (released 1978), now with Dan Molén handeling the bass playing. The record company, Heavy Sound Records, went bankrupt after a while (not because of Heavy Load I hope!) and the Wahlquist Bros. formed their own label, Thunderload Records.
After their debut, Ex-Highbrow guitarist was added to the line-up as well as Torbjörn Ragnesjö, replacing Dan Molén. This line-up released the EP "Metal Conquest" and the two full-lenght albums "Death Or Glory" and "Stronger Than Evil" before breaking up. A last try was made in 1985 with the single "Monsters Of The Night", featuring bassist Andreas Fritz, but split up shortly after.

In 1987, the Wahlquist Bros. kickstarted the band again and recorded an album together with ex-UFO bassist Paul Gray and guitarist Patrik Karlsson. The album was never released, though.

Full Speed at High Level definitely is their best, pretty inspired by Priest though. I hope to catch them live at the Keep It True or the Headbangers Open Air some year!

Their album covers are particularly awesome:

Full speed at high level sonds real awesome too, wow didn't know it was released in the 70's. I'm gonna change my opinion to AMAZNG, one of the most underrated and overlooked bands.

Priest fans should hear it.
