Our Debut Album “Off Line” Returns: A Blast from the Past with Stellar Collaborations and Rave Reviews

Hey there, rock enthusiasts and die-hard fans of NERVED! We have some incredibly exciting news to share with you. After nearly two decades, our highly acclaimed debut album, "Off Line," has made its triumphant return to all major streaming platforms. We couldn't be more thrilled to bring this timeless gem back to your playlists and introduce it to a new generation of rock aficionados. We had a blog post just a few months back about this album, since it was made with a complete different lineup of NERVED.

NERVED's first lineup back on all streaming platforms.

NERVED 2004. Emil Gammeltoft, Marcus Hanser, Magnus Stenvinkel and Björn Lundberg.

Let's take a moment to reflect on the magic that is "Off Line." Released back in 2004, this album was our first foray into the world of music, a wild and electrifying journey that marked the beginning of our musical careers. "Off Line" showcases the raw talent, relentless energy, and unapologetic rock spirit that has come to define NERVED's sound.

What makes this album even more special are the collaborations we had the honor of featuring. The album boasts appearances by two extraordinary musicians who added their unique flair to our music. The first is Kalle Moraeus, a Swedish violinist, composer, and entertainer of great renown. Kalle's musical prowess elevated our tracks, infusing them with a layer of depth and richness that we could have only dreamed of.

The first album

But that's not all! We are incredibly honored to announce that the late Manny Charlton, the legendary guitarist for Nazareth, made a special appearance on our version of "Expect No Mercy." This iconic song, originally created during Manny's time with Nazareth, holds a special place in rock history, and having him contribute to our rendition is a dream come true. Manny's talent and influence shine through, adding a touch of authenticity and paying homage to the roots of this incredible track.

Speaking of covers. On Off Line we also did our own version of The Cardigans "Paralyzed" - a version that we still are very proud of and also started our "tradition" if doing our version of of popular pop song. Followed up with "Glorious" on Finally Nerved (2008) and of course "Electric" that recently passed 900k streams on Spotify!

Upon its release, "Off Line" received an overwhelming response from critics and fans alike. Mattias Kling, the esteemed music journalist from Aftonbladet, showered the album with praise, highlighting its infectious hooks, powerful riffs, and memorable choruses. Jerry recognized our ability to seamlessly blend different rock influences, creating a cohesive and captivating sonic experience that resonated deeply with audiences.

Janne Stark, a revered figure in the rock music scene and a contributor to Sweden Rock Magazine, echoed Jerry's sentiments. Janne commended "Off Line" for its impressive songwriting, exceptional musicianship, and authentic rock energy. His words affirmed our passion for creating music that speaks to the hearts and souls of rock enthusiasts.

But what truly sets "Off Line" apart is its timeless appeal. Even after all these years, the album continues to strike a chord with fans from all walks of life. Its ability to captivate listeners with its hard-hitting soundscapes, engaging lyrics, and undying rock spirit is a testament to the enduring power of our music.

I Love You – here is where it starts

On Christmas Day 2004 a large part of the Swedish population stops chewing on their Christmas chocolate. A TV commercial from Save the Children makes it clear how domestic violence looks in the eyes of the victim - the child. Many still remember the day when they first saw it, as well as the sequels.

This is also the first time people get to hear "I Love You". Written and created by Marcus Hanser, who was the master mind behind the idea of the TVC. Nerved's bass player at that time, Magnus Stenvinkel, and their common friend Richard Tedenholt played big part of the creation of this film. It was shot in a basement - a true low budget production. Many more TVCs was to follow - the campaign was a success. The first time the song was published as a whole was on the album Finally Nerved.

As we close in to 15 January 2018, the five year anniversary revisit to this special song is a fact. We have created a playlist on our YouTube channel where we have gathered all the TV commercial "I Love You" has been the soundtrack to. And of course the magic/tragic music video made by Amrit Forss to the revisited version. Go here and enjoy them all!

Fun fact. I Love You remixed by Dumb Dan hit the UK Dance charts in 2007. Find them here!


Nice words from Side 33

Nice words are always nice to read. Obviously Mads Kornum who runs the danish site noticed our performance on Copenhell, despite the early hour.

"Last but not least, Swedish Nerved deserve a few words along the way. Just showing up in a suit and with a singer in something that could look like an alternative take on a wedding dress creates attention. The nerves remained within the clothes, and they managed with a solid symphonic round of metal rock in the European top class - not unlike a band like Nightwish - to emphasize that Copenhell is actually a place where there is much more than nostalgic pleasure - there is also plenty of nourishment for curiosity."

Thanks. And thanks Henrik Hildebrandt for great pics.

The first album

Off line – our first album

Have you ever heard this one? Our first album "off line" was released 2004. The line-up was, besides Marcus, singer Emil Gammeltoft, Magnus Stenvinkel hitting the bass and Björn Lundgren on the drums. It contained twelve track and just with the later ones it had a couple of covers (the Nazareth classic "Expect No Mercy" and "Paralyzed" by the Cardigans) as well as couple of guest artists. In this case legendary Manny Charlton and Swedish all-star-musician Kalle Moraeus. And just like the following albums it also had a few electronic tracks.

Considering that "off line" was totally self produced it actually got pretty good reviews.

"Swedish band NERVED delivers a real musical ball-punch" /Janne Stark, Sweden Rock Magazine (SE)

"...the potential herein is more than enough." /Mattias Kling, Aftonbladet (SE)

"...NERVED from Sweden will hit your stomach with a heavy punch. "Thomas Klaner/ Bright Eyes Magazine (D)

The artwork was done by David Östlund and all photos by Mårten Levin. The CD is pretty rare, and it was a long time since Sony Music removed it from all streaming platforms. But you can find it on Sound Cloud, just follow this link.


Heaven at Copenhell

The premiere for the new line-up became at the Gehenna stage at Copenhell. And what a blast it was! Amazing crew, lovely audience and even great weather. Keep an eye on our instagram feed for images. And such magic to finally be alive again. Thank you Copenhell!


We add Adde

And here he is - our new drummer Andreas "Adde" Larsson! One of Sweden's most hired freelance drummers within metal and hard rock. But as it came out, he was looking for a band to call his own.
- I was looking for a band with a sound like Rammstein and Muse. All of a sudden my friend Peter "Tintin"  Jörgensen (the Swedish lighting engineer legend) told me that NERVED was looking for a new drummer. I checked them out ang BANG fell in love with their music immediately.
Adde are usually on several albums every year. You might have heard him with Red Wolf, Urbandux, Destiny, Deth by Audio, Man Machine Industry, and Massive Audio Nerve ...just to mention a few. You can see him in action here.
We are proud to add Adde to NERVED. His skills, beat and passion will add dimensions to our music. To enter the stage on Copenhell on June 18 will be a sheer pleasure!
- On my bucket list was to be a part of a band that I love, as well as play on Copenhell. As I join NERVED I kill two birds with one stone.
