2016, Tony Niva started singing as a young boy in the mid-80s, inspired by the likes of Ronnie James Dio, Joe Lynn Turner and Geoff Tate. After cutting his teeth in classic acts like Swedish Erotica and Axia, Tony formed his own outfit Niva whose debut album NO CAPITULATION arrived in 1994 (featuring Ian Haugland of Europe/Glenn Hughes fame behind the kit). Despite the quality of this melodic affair, Niva folded shortly afterwards. After graduating from the university, Tony joined Lion's Share long enough to record the aforementioned ENTRANCE- and left the music scene again shortly afterwards. However, in 2011 Tony tried out for the Swedish Eurovision Song Contest with the song ,,Janitor Of Love". The formidable outing ATMOSPHERICAL sees Tony Niva returning to the melodic metal scene who still remembers him so fondly, without compromising his melodic roots. Talk about going in with a bang.
