Pound was formed in 2004 in the town of Borlänge, located somewhere near the middle of Sweden, by four guys with a great passion for music. It’s original members were Stefan Gustavsson, Janne Korpela, Mika Itäranta and Martin Haglund. Having played together a few years in the pop/rock band Universal Puppies, the guys felt that they wanted to put a harder edge to their music but still keep the great pop melodies - Pound was the result. In 2005 they released their first ep “Phantom killer” which received great reviews. The music was heavier than before but Stefan was still the main songwriter so the great melodies were still present. A few months after the release of “Phantom Killer”, Martin and Mika decided to leave the band to play full time with Astral Doors. Fortunately, during this time Stefan had gotten in touch and played with drummer Samuel Granath who was asked to join the band. Samuel in his turn had recently played with bass player Christian Larsson who was introduced to the other guys. After a jam full of good vibes, Chris joined the band. The band began to work intensively on writing and recording songs and also performed live on several different locations in Sweden. Pound began planning on the making of its first full length record and needed a suitable producer. Fortunately the band had gotten in touch with the famous American rock singer Tony Harnell, who was asked to produce the album. Harnell accepted and Pound's first full-length album "Stardust, lies and holy water" was released in april 2009. Seconds sind vier junge Träumer, die die Herausforderung angenommen haben ihren eigenen Sound zu kreieren!Rund um die zwei weiblichen Powerstimmen, machen harte Töne, funkige Klänge und eingehende Melodien "Seconds" zu dem, was sie sind."
