Mary Beats Jane

Kind of a curiosity here, a relatively unknown Swedish band with an odd name and an un-Swedish musical style, signing to a major label, even winning a Swedish Grammy award, and disappearing after releasing a couple of albums in the 90's. The music here was pretty heavy, post-thrash with vaguely hardcore-ish vocals and some intense riffing, with one similarity possibly being fellow Swedes Transport League. Vocalist Peter Dolving left to join The Haunted (and then left there, and then rejoined there, and then left there again), and he stated that Mary Beats Jane will not be resurrected.
