Schematics For Gravity is a post-rock/metal band from Malmö, Sweden, formed by Chris Campbell and Anders Lundgren in early 2010 as a hardcore/metal band. The musical direction changed quickly as drummer Pontus Landgren joined the group and as they got their eyes open for a more atmospheric and post-rock influenced approach to their once very clear metal foundation. The band stayed underground for a longer period of time during their early days experimenting with sounds, influences and members. 

When Martin Nilsson joined on guitar, the band finally had a steady line-up instrumentally and got booked for their first gig. A week before the concert the band still hadn’t found any vocalist, Pontus contacted Erik Silverberg, a member from previous bands and projects who agreed to help the band out until a steady vocalist was found to take his place, but later on decided to stay as a permanent member. 

The current line-up made their first appearance in December 2010 in Malmö Sweden under a different name. After a few gigs to try out their style Schematics For Gravity got the confidence to record and release their first self titled EP for download at Christmas 2011 through their bandcamp-site.

On August 2014 Schematics For Gravity released their second EP, "Absence Of Weight", another solid EP, that makes you wonder why this band is so unappreciated. Pure, raw post-metal vocals and post-rock melodies, that take you a few years back, when every post-metal release could excite you for weeks. In the end, "Absence Of Weight", is one of the best 2014 releases so far.

For fans of Rosetta.
