The Murder of My Sweet is a Swedish cinematic metal band founded in 2007 by drummer and producer Daniel Flores. The music is inspired by movie scores, film noir storytelling, and bands like Queen, E.L.O, and Genesis presented with a modern twist and heavy sounding production.
After the release of two albums, in 2015 The Murder of My Sweet reunited with Frontiers Records with the release of their concept album Beth Out of Hell, an album that was described as “almost Wagnerian” in style (Sonic Cathedral) and compared to such masterpieces as Operation Mindcrime by Powerplay Magazine in the UK.
The new album follows on the heels of the previous record with a more straight-ahead songwriting, but still offering the symphonic and cinematic elements the band is now well known for and will surely please fans of the previous albums. Echoes of the Aftermath creates a Nordic sound the members of the band grew up with and takes on issues more in tune with our modern day life.

Since the release of their debut album Divanity in January 2010, and the single that preceded it in 2009 (“Bleed Me Dry”, which reached No. 14 in the Swedish National Singles Charts), female-fronted rock/metal band The Murder Of My Sweet have become amongst the biggest hopes on the European scene. Their individual, easily recognizable and high-value sound, has touched the lives of many fans and with its mix of modern, groovy, hard rock, beautiful melodies, and progressive, cinematic flair. The band, led by singer Angelica Rylin, has secured a remarkable fan base already, far from the shores of Stockholm, where the band was formed in 2007. The name inspired by the 1944 ‘film-noir’ Murder, My Sweet.
