The Quill are often referred to as a stoner rock. They are influenced by late 1960s and early 1970s bands such as Black Sabbath, Deep Purple and Led Zeppelin, but also sound like stoner metal bands such as Monster Magnet, Kyuss and Corrosion of Conformity. The official The Quill MySpace states they sound like "groovy hard/heavy rock" "Determination – no other word is necessary when it comes to describing The Quill. The Swedish four-piece has been around since the nineties and have so far released six acclaimed albums: “The Quill” (1995), “Silver Haze” (1999), ”Voodoo caravan” (2001), ”Hooray! It’s a deathtrip” (2003), ”In triumph" (2006) and “Full Circle” (2011). The core of The Quill consists of the two mainstays, guitarist Christian Carlsson and drummer Jolle Atlagic (ex. Hanoi Rocks, The Real McCoy Band). The two musical motors, whom together formed the band in the early nineties, have always worked with one single goal - a determination to show audiences all over the world the sheer quality of The Quill. In 2010 they teamed up with new singer Magnus Arnar (ex. Ground Mower, Soul 78) to fill the vacant vocalist spot. In mid 2012 the lost son Roger Nilsson (ex. Spiritual Beggars, Firebird) returned to handle the bass guitar after having spent 7 years exploring other musical journeys. The Full Circle-campaign of 2011-12 saw The Quill yet again touring extensively all over Europe and also, for the first time, in the US. Having toured and shared bill with a variety of bands, such as Black Sabbath, Deep Purple and Monster Magnet, there’s no stage The Quill fear to tread. Known for their high-energy, take no prisoners attitude they always deliver a live-show leaving audiences grasping for air. Finally, a new chapter in the musical gospel of The Quill has been written and is titled “Tiger Blood”. The album will be released through Metalville in 2013 and the band is ecstatic over the times to come. The songs will have a wider range, live shows will be more explosive and touring will be more intense. Did we say determination?"
