HOUSE OF HEAVY, the Swedish band formed by MASQUERADE bassist Henrik Lundberg and P.I.G. singer Mattias Wellhag, has recruited former SHOTGUN MESSIAH drummer Stixx.

Commented the group: "We start to jam on Saturday in Stixx's basement outside of Skövde, Sweden. We are also in the process of recruiting a lead guitarist and things are looking very good at the moment. The plan is to take the show out on the road late summer early fall and to have a new record out this time next year."

Formed in 2006 by longtime friends Henrik Lundberg and Mattias Wellhag, HOUSE OF HEAVY "crafts blistering, arena rock that echoes the late-'80s output of classic metal with a modern twist," according to a press release. "The duo began collaborating after spending years in and out of other bands. Two years of living-room rehearsals, home-recorded demos, and late nights spent just listening to music eventually landed the pair a digital distribution deal with Metal Blade and an international deal with Spiritual Beast Records, resulting in HOUSE OF HEAVY's full-length debut in January 2009."
