Sideburn is a Classic Hardrock/Doom/Blues/Progressive band out of Stockholm, Sweden.

In the beginning (1997) there were Morgan Zocek (guitar player), and Tor Pentèn (Drummer) who met each other in a club in Stockholm. They shared the same musical vision and influences (bluesy hard rock) in bands like Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple, Rainbow, The Cult, and Kyuss among others.


They had a bass player who had played with Morgan in his previous band Rooster, so they began looking for a singer.

The name of the band came up when Morgan read an article in a music magazine where some band was called Flaming Sideburns (or something) and Morgan edited the name to Sideburn and grew his sideburns even more, and that was it. Sideburn did some gigs in the Stockholm area with different singers.

The band got their recording contract with the Italian label 'Beard of Stars /Vinyl Magic' and recorded the debut album "Trying To Burn The Sun" in two weeks in the spring of 2001 and it was released late Jan/Feb 2002.

At the end of June Sideburn started the recording of their new full length album "The Newborn Sun", at XTC productions studio with Ulf Wahlberg as a co-producer.

Sideburn have signed a new record deal with Buzzville Records (Belgium) and the new album The Newborn Sun” was released in the beginning of 2007.

In May 2010 the new album "The Demon Dance" was released worldwide.

They released their 4th album, the critically acclaimed “IV Monument” worldwide on Transubstans/Record Heaven in Oct 2012.

Expect heavy guitar attacks, and intense solos backed up by a steady rhythm section that we could hear in classic bands such as DIO& UFO and powerful vocals that carry on the spirit of Ronnie James Dio/Ian Gillan!
