Pridebowl is a Swedish and American punk rock band.
Pridebowl was created by Aaron Goulding (vocalist and writer from Newport Beach, California), Henrik, Stefan, Oskar and Martin who are all from Varberg, Sweden. The band took form by the end of September 1994 and within a couple of months their demo tape, titled Ambitious Ways was completed.Pridebowl's vocalist Aaron left for home on December 29. Just before Pridebowl split up many record labels received a copy of the demo tape. Lost & Found Records from Germany was soon to take interest and promised a seven-inch of the Pridebowl demo and scattered exposure. This never happened though.Through Satanic Surfers (who Pridebowl had played with just before Christmas) a demo found its way to the Bad Taste Records headquarters where everyone was very impressed with this young quintet. In March Aaron was flown back to Sweden to start rehearsing and later on recording the first Pridebowl EP Long-Distance (btr 4).
