"We like to write about dark heavy stuff", says singer Ola Svensson. "We're not trying to paint a picture of a perfect world where everything is smiles and happy faces. The stuff we write about is real, and it’s something most people can relate to". The band took its first baby-steps in the southern parts of Sweden back in 2006, but was reformed in late 2010 when the current lineup was formed and the band released their debut album "The Debt" in the upcoming year. The second album "The Collector" sees the band further developing their own sound with epic tracks like the full out thrashing "A Barren Country and the Walking Dead", the dark melodic "Man O´Mankind" and the adrenaline filled opening track “Machine”. The album was described by Sweden's biggest rock magazine as “ground breaking” and “innovative”. The raw and intense sound followed by the experience of performing over 100 gigs has earned Wasted Shells a reputation as an amazing live band. The band is constantly evolving, with their unique formula creating metal music their own way; the "wasted" way.
