Theory in Practice
1995
Sweden
Music group
Theory In Practice was formed in July '95. After a year of rehearsals and gigs, they recorded a demo in the Abyss Studio.

The demo, called "Submissive", got splendid reviews and the group got offers from various record companies. Theory In Practice signed a contract with Pulverised Records and began to work on a full length CD.

After the debut album "Third Eye Function" (recorded at Sunlight studio in Stockholm) was released, Johan left the band because he wanted to study music.

Released in 1997, the album received positive thunderous reviews in all the press. Johan's departure didn’t tarnish the band’s enthusiasm in getting better musicians and getting ready for the second album "The Armageddon Theories", recorded in 1998. The new opus showed improvement in creativity as well as production. Henrik then took the vocals duty and Peter played all the guitars.

In 1999, "The Armageddon Theories" was released and awoke the interest of many European labels. The band decided to switch to Freanch label Listenable records which eventually re-released the second album with a new packaging. ‘The Armageddon theories’ received critical acclaim worldwide and amounted comfortable sales.

In 2001, Theory In Practice was striking again with a new crusade: "Colonising the Sun". Peter and the band produced the album in his own studio Hangar 18 in Sweden. "Colonising the Sun" shows the band even more mature than ever by incorporating classical music influenced arrangements and a somewhat more melodic however more straight forward approach. With closing the album with a surprising Spark cover, the band shows their passion for 70s music and prove to be good entertainers. Because their music speaks for itself, they don’t need anything else than letting the music speaks….like good musical entertainers.

In December 2002 the band officially announced an extensive break.
