DIE HARD is an old-school thrash/death metal outfit form Uppsala, Sweden. In November 2005 Harry (bass) formed a band with the intention of bringing the spirits of the past back to life. The goal was to play old-school thrash metal in the vein of Venom, Slayer, Sodom, Possessed and Celtic Frost.
One year later, after many line-up changes, a band consisting of Harry, Hasse (guitar/vocals), Micke (guitar) and Nicke (drums) started rehearsing. In Febrary 2007 Die Hard entered studio Hell for the recording of their debut-demo "Emissaries of the Reaper", which later on was released as a 7” EP by Germany’s Anger of Metal Records.
In January 2008 Micke and Nicke decided to leave the band and were replaced by Håkan (drums). After a few months of intense rehearsing the trio entered Studio Blueflame to record the MCD "Evil Always Return". In connection with the release of "Evil Always Return" DIE HARD played at Maiden Massacre Festival in Oslo, with Obscurity, Watain and Nifelheim - before once again focusing on writing new material. Band's debut album entitled "Nihilistic Vision" was released by Agonia Records in the summer of 2009. After warm reviews, the group emerged on a full-scale European tour with genre's legends, Sodom.
In 2012 DIE HARD returned with a new EP entitled "Antichrist" and a brand new album "Conjure The Legions". The current line-up includes: Harry (bass/vocal), Simon (guitars/vocal) and Perra (drums).
