Freedom Bleeder was a stoner rock band from Uppsala, Sweden with a sound similar to desert rock bands like Kyuss and Unida. The band was formed in 1995 in Uppsala by Johan Haag, guitars, Henrik Renstrom, vocals and Gustav Grusell, bass, with the intention to play heavy rock inspired by bands like Kyuss and Monster Magnet. Soon raw, heavy rock could be heard from their rehearsal room , which was located in an old industrial building. The band soon recorded a demotape, on which old friend Kim Nordberg played the drums. Later the band has recorded a couple of more hot rockin' demotapes. Kim was later replaced by Johan Hedman, who has now been replaced by the local drummer Andreas Wiil. A split with Mugwumps would follow in 1997. The band signed a record deal for two fullength albums with the Londonbased label Yperano records. In fall '99 another change in the line up took place when Andreas moved from Uppsala. He was replaced by Peter Hedberg, who immediately recorded the Breathing single with the band in 2000.

An album would finally come in 10 Out of 10 in 2003, though it's unknown if the band is still active or when exactly they disbanded.
