On May 25, Swedish metal band MARIONETTE was crowned the winner of the Gothenburg finals of the international music contest Emergenza. The group will now head to Stockholm to play the Scandinavian finals, which will be held at Debaser on July 16-17. The Scandinavian finals will feature the best bands from Stockholm, Gothenburg, Malmö, Oslo, Helsinki and Copenhagen. Two acts will win a trip to Germany to play the international finals.Inspired by the beauty of Japan and the roughness of European metal, MARIONETTE was born during the second half of 2005. The purpose was to mix elegance and darkness, beauty and rawness, fast, pumping riffs with sad, beautiful melodies to creat a very own style of music. MARIONETTE played its first show in October 2005 and has played many concerts since. They made it all the way to the finals of Sweden's biggest music contest, MusikDirekt, and ended up in top 20 of about 700 bands. They also won the music contest Goteborgstalangen and made it to the Partillerocken finals. For more information, visit www.marionette.se.
