The band was formed 1978 in Kolsva, Köping as ROTTEN RATS but soon changed their name to ACHILLEUS VREDE or shortened just ACHILLEUS. The band recorded around 8 demos, a 7" and a compilation LP through their active years (1978-1993). ACHILLEUS sound engineer was Lasse Andersson who wrote the song "Piccadilly Circus" for the 1985 Eurovision Song Contest.

When the band falled apart Patric, Björn, Sören, and Juba formed the psych/prog rock act DARXTAR. Swedish readers can find more info about ACHILLEUS at the following sites: Achilleus Vrede Story or mrmarten.blogspot.com.
