Headplate is a nu metal band from Sweden, which consists members from Engel, Gardenian and Passenger. Here is the official band history: 1993 Danne, n1c and Marcus forms the foundation of the band. Danne on guitar, Marcus on bass and n1c on the drums. 1994 We felt we wanted to have two guitars and Marcus trades his bass in for a guitar. We recruited a new bass player by the name of Heyk. Still we were looking for a vocalist. 1995 We were pretty much living in our rehearsal space writing and creating.
