Artist Biography by

Swedish doom metal band Kaptain Sun formed in 1998, but had its origins in an earlier, more death metal-leaning outfit named Clandestine (Entombed fans take note) which vocalist/guitarist Anders HÃ¥kansson (aka Andy Wong), guitarist Martin Lindholm, bassist Rickard Gustafsson, and drummer Marcus Hamrin first put together in 1993. The group's stylistic transformation started to take shape following the guitarist's departure in late '97, and, after a brief contribution from one Martin Fairbanks, full-time six-stringer Andreas Svensson (aka Andrey) arrived in time to record 2000s Trip to Vortex E.P. Three years later, Kaptain Sun finally released their full-length debut in the shape of Rainbowride.
