Dodge

Dodge is a Swedish Alternative Metal/Melodic Metalcore band. It all originated back in ´98 when INHALE was formed. The music was then a mix between nu-metal and hard-core with Swedish lyrics. It didn’t take long before labels showed interest for the band, and in 1999 they where signed to a Swedish production label and the debut-album was recorded. Although many labels considered the album promising it was delayed and didn’t hit the stores until spring 2002. This resulted in a poor sale of the album and a departure of two members, in other words… INHALE split up.
