Avatar was formed in Gothenburg, Sweden, in 2001 by drummer John Alfredsson and guitarist Jonas Jarlsby, who at the time were performing in separate bands. Their debut album, Thoughts of No Tomorrow, was released in 2006 and peaked at No. 47 on the Sweden Albums Top 60. Avatar’s second album, Schlacht, was released in 2007 and reached the No. 27 spot on the Swedish albums chart. The band’s musical influences include Marilyn Manson, Iron Maiden and Ozzy Osbourne, forming their unique sound that has been described as avant-garde metal.
Most recently, Avatar released their album Avatar Country in 2018. They launched a Kickstarter campaign for ‘Legend of Avatar Country,’ which was described as a “film featurette based on the album Avatar Country by the band Avatar.” They exceeded their $50,000 goal by raising more than $110,000. This featurette has yet to be released.
