Set Before Us came together as a band in the early months of 2012. The quintet hailing from the suburbs of Stockholm quickly moved on from covers and started writing and rehearsing their own material. 

The basics

The idea of Set Before Us is mainly to present a energetic and inspiring live show. The audience will be taken  on a ride which will include various interactive moments and powerful songs. 

The songs themselves are melodic metalcore with numerous influences from other types of music. 

Set Before Us lyrics aim to inspire and motivate each individual to take control of their fate, destiny and life. The lyrics will tackle various dilemmas and give the audience a spark of deep thought. 


Frequently playing in youth centers and pubs around  Stockholm and its surrounding area the band gained a local following. Set Before Us started recording their first official  single ''Wildfire'' during the winter of 2013. The single was released in the spring of 2014 and recieved positive reviews. A few months later Set Before Us began recording their debut EP ''Voyagers'', which was released in November 2014. With a new repertoire and a growing fan base the band started booking and playing shows covering all of Sweden.  During the meantime they recorded a new single called "Highborn" which would come to be a musical milestone for the band. Frequently touring, Set Before Us have performed in Germany, Belgium, the Netherlands, England, Estonia, Ukraine and Russia. In November 2016, the band released their second EP "Enigmas". 

Set Before Us have released two EPs, "Voyagers" and "Enigmas" as well as a single ''Highborn''. All their music is available on YouTube, Spotify, iTunes and Bandcamp.
