Our story


Ledmotiv is an orchestral metal band from Gothenburg: the metal- and symphonic capital city of Sweden. The band was formed and took shape before and during the pandemic of Covid-19. With the desire to build a new and prosperous future for the metal industry, drummer and composer Viktor Hakan joined forces with vocalist Fredrik Vahlgren and guitarist Nils Leufvenius. This line-up is however incomplete, for Ledmotiv is not an ordinary metal band. It is an orchestral metal band, with one goal. To make it bigger, better, and heavier.

Numerous yet-to-be-annouced symphonic musicians will form one of the greatest rock live acts the world has ever seen with Ledmotiv. With the 80s metal bands retiring one after another, the need for a big act to continue the legacy is now. Ledmotiv aim to be that.With the heaviness of bands such as Iron Maiden and Judas Priest, combined with elements of John Williams’ many movie soundtracks, they strive to be something entirely original.Ledmotiv will not stop growing until they’ve reached arena status. If it is conceivable, it is possible.

Ledmotiv have released the single "Master of Simulation" 17th of June, and are due to release their debut album "An Astronaut's Diary".
