Interview with Andreas “Adde” Sydow, the frontman of the Swedish Rock/Heavy band, Riot Horse.
By Carla Morton
Greetings Andreas, how things are going?
Hey! Everything is amazing here.
You left Darkane and you decided to create a new band, Riot Horse.
Well, actually I was pretty fed up with music when I left Darkane. During the years in Darkane my creative side got somewhat put in hiatus. I’m not bread on Death Metal and I felt kinda lost in that world, not able to contribute much to the making of Darkane’s music. I became more of an instrument in the hands of Peter and Christofer. That took it’s toll both on me and on them and that was the reason for me leaving in the end.
I spent a few years trying to get my creative side going again. Out of the blue I got a call from a friend asking if I would consider manning the microphone in a band called Riot Horse. The band had been struggeling with keeping members in the band since Neil started it and my friend, who was playing the bass at the time, thought I might be a good fit for the band. His instinct turned out to be exactly spot on! This was precisely what I wanted to do and Riot Horse instantly took of in a way I would’ve never imagined.
Let’s talk about releases, which is the debut one?
Riot Horse has only one album released to this date. “This Is Who We Are” was released in May 2014.
