Formed in 1975 as ANIARA by Morgan Dagerstrand - Vocals, Mats Olsson - Guitar / Keyboards, Per-Olof Buhre - Bass, Mats Henriksson - Drums and Carl-Erik Månsson - Guitar. They played heavy rock with influences from UFO and SCORPIONS. When ANIARA split-up; Mats H, Per-Olof, and Carl-Erik formed VANADIS together with the new vocalist Jan Göransson and guitarist Anders Gry Nilsson. With a new guitarist/vocalist the band also got a new sound, now more influenced by THIN LIZZY.

VANADIS recorded the 7" single 'Heaven Can Wait / Do Me A Favor' in 1978 and split-up in late 1979 couse of military service. Carl-Erik Månsson later joined BAI BANG together with STORMBRINGER/PHOENIX members Jonas Langebro and Claes Wallin. Carl-Erik are today active in the band MANSSROCK.
