        LACK ROSE was formed in 1990, in Fagersta, Sweden.

         The debut album "Fortune Favors the brave" emerged in
         1993, courtesy of Danish 'Bums Records'.

         In the following years the band continued to produce a
         couple of mini-CDs and demos, while playing lots of gigs
throughout Sweden.


A self titled full length got underway in 2002, with the follow up "Explode" in 2004, both on German 'Shark Records'

Christian Liljegren (NARNIA, GOLDEN RESURRECTION, DIVINEFIRE etc...) then signed BLACK ROSE to the Swedish label 'Doolittle Group' wich resulted in the 2013 release "Turn on the Night".

In August 2015 a new singer joined the band - powerhouse vocalist Jakob ”Jacke” Sandberg.

BLACK ROSE has continuously played lots of live performances, and has also been support act to bands like FATE, THE POODLES, MIKE TRAMP, PAIN OF SALVATION, NOCTURNAL RITES and SOUL SIGN (Yngwie-members).
