Biography

Marcel Jacob was the original bassist in the rock band Europe, and he's also known for having played in the Swedish hard rock band Talisman and with Yngwie J. Malmsteen.

He committed suicide in 2009 at the age of 45 after many years of personal and health issues; the last record in which he played is Expressions by the Swedish rock band Impulsia.

Trivia

"Scream of Anger" was the only Europe song to feature music written by Jacob and is often noted for being much heavier than most of their material.

In the early 2000s Jacob studied psychology at Stockholm University for a few years.
