The Nifters was formed in 99 by singer Mats Larsson and guitarist Johan Söderhielm. The early years was spent playing fast an chaotic punkrock. One full length album and three vinyl 7” later the name was changed to simply Nifters. That was the end of the punkrock days. During Easter 2003 the recording of MCD Cognitive Eclipse (released in november 2003 by Black Juju records) began. It was the beginning of a new sound, heavier, darker and more mature songs based on melodic guitar riffs, like the perfect mix between hardrock and pop.
