Formed in the spring of 2016 by Simone (guitar), Sam (former vocals) and Johan (former drums) the band lived under another name, with two other members not included in the original lineup for First Revival. Later on, Simone recruited Daniel as lead guitar and Hasse as bassplayer and backup singer.
Two days after the final member joined, the band entered the studio to record their first single Nothing But Monsters, which was released 1st of May 2016.
During their first year in 2017, the band performed live as much as possible to gain experience and work on their live performance. The 20th of May 2017, their first EP "Hope Has Us Blinded" was released with a releaseparty in their hometown Luleå.
A few months after that in the fall of 2017, Daniel (former leadguitarist) left the band due to personal reasons and they stood without a lead guitar and had to recuperate from the lost of a member.
The same fall of 2017 they recruited Isac as their new lead guitarist. The band continued writing music and playing venues to gain more experience and to spread their name.
In the early spring of 2018 they decided to part ways with their singer Sam because different ideas to were the bands sound was heading into. In April,the same year, they announced that they had a new singer. Hasse the bassplayer and former backup singer, took over the microphone. With the new lineup, the band formed a steadier sound and opened a lot more of opportunities.
In the spring of 2019 Isac quit the band due personal reasons and they recruited Kristoffer as their new lead guitarist.And in the fall of 2019 they parted ways with their former drummer Johan also, due to personal resons and later on they recruited Hugo as their new drummer. Due to the many changes of bandmembers during the years, First Revival has continued writing music and playing live as much as possible. People who know who First Revival is, knows that they are a thrustworthy liveact with a bunch of energy and a unique sound. For those who doesn't know need to find out for themselves. They will not be dissapointed.
First Revivals sound is best described as a mix between 70s heavy metal and a touch of modern stoner metal.
Like a turbo diesel engine with a blues-like groove.
