SWEDISH HARD ROCK WITH STYLE!!!
In 2005, Reine, Andreas and Manx decided to start a band that would pick up where their previous band had stopped. H-Can was contacted to keep pace behind the drums. Everything felt right from the beginning and Debbie Ray was a fact.
For several years, the band recorded a variety of songs and played extensively around the country. But it took until 2009 before the first album "Artificial Misery" was released on the American company “Demon Doll Records”. As it was released in physical form only in the United States and was hard to get hands on for the rest of the world, it was re-released worldwide the next year both digital and physical. This time on the Swedish company “Core Shot Production”.
Around the same time in 2010 bass player Manx decided to leave the band and Martin Söderquist took over the job. The gigging continued around the country and in 2012 Debbie Ray released a three track EP called "Rock n Roll Widow". And at the end of the same year different wills and current family situations made the band to take the decision to take a "break" for an indefinite period. And it was long unclear whether there would be any more of the band ...
But in early 2014 the appetite for rock n roll came back. The band rapidly wrote many new songs. In 2016 the deal with METALAPOLIS RECORDS was signed and now “Slave To The System” will see the light of day!!! Inspired by classic bands like Mötley Crüe, Skid Row, Guns n Roses, Backyard Babies and Pantera, it was more than clear in which direction to take their sound, but with a modern touch.
