Anima Morte - Face the Sea of Darkness (IMPORT) (CD) Cover Art Anima Morte - Face the Sea of Darkness (IMPORT) (CD)

2 bonus tracks.

This is pure Italian horror-soundtrack worship at its very best! Incredibly talented, creepy, dark, and haunting. This 11 song debut album is a MUST for fans of Goblin, Fabio Frizzi, and Morte Macabre. These zombies from Sweden have crafted a wonderfully mesmerizing and diabolic piece of work.

Featuring members of Oresund Space Collective.

Bland Bladen are a quartet from Malmö, Sweden who play a KILLER instrumental brand of Space Rock that blends Ozric Tentacles, jamming lysergic Psychedelia, Trance, and Progressive Rock. The music consists of searing space rock with hints of Zappa amidst the Ozric styled space vibe and old time kosmiche prog and heavy rock feel. Absolutely mind-bending and the way the music evolves and builds positive energy and intensity they could have easily gone on for 20 minutes or more and never lost my attention. So chock another one up for the Swedes dear readers. This is 100% totally spaced out rock and prog played by a band with pure psychedelic hearts. You are commanded to check these guys out NOW!

Blowback - Eight Hundred Miles (IMPORT) (CD) Cover Art Blowback - Eight Hundred Miles (IMPORT) (CD)



Blowback display their own style and uniqueness; yet each time I listen to Eight Hundred Miles I discover the sounds of whom they’ve been inspired; the melodies of Witchcraft, the sorrow of Black Sabbath, the vibe of Led Zep and the blues from Hendrix.

Brutus/The Graviators - Split LP (IMPORT) (LP) Cover Art Brutus/The Graviators - Split LP (IMPORT) (LP)

Limited edition of only 300 copies on black vinyl.

Brutus makes clear how classic 70's heavy rock should be played. Influenced heavily by Hendrix, Blue Cheer and Grand Funk Railroad.

The Graviators seemlessly and effectively blends Pentagram-styled doom with a more modern stoner rock edge.

Carpet Knights, The - Lost and So Strange is My Mind (IMPORT) (CD) Cover Art Carpet Knights, The - Lost and So Strange is My Mind (IMPORT) (CD)

Fetures members of Oresund Space Collective.

The music they play is quite unique, incorporating many different styles including post, folk, grunge, indie and progrock elements. One thing that really impresses me is the dynamic nature of the music; it can go from quite soft and somber to psych and rocking in the blink of an eye. I was intrigued on the first play but each time I listen to it I find new things to appreciate. Beautiful intros, many lengthy instrumental passages and a vocalist, who scores his intricate melody lines with sweet yet powerful vocals and manages to enthrall the listener in their world of sound. The use of flutes sounds Jethro Tull-familiar and perfectly harmonizes with the King Crimson and Lucifers's Friend creations dominated by percussion and guitars. Though they use heavier passages, the mostly quiet, calm songs create an almost hypnotising effect.

A CD that I can recommend without a second thought. This is for progressive fans with an ear for the unexpected, where the highly wilfull combination of 70's progrock elements and relaxing waves of feedback form a grand creation.

This is the first album by the Swedish The Carpet Knights, although the band has been around for years and have previously released a few demos. Based on this album, their group's music is guitar-driven 70's styled, rather progressive rock with great vocal harmonies and little psychedelic tinges. Magnus, the singer of the group, also plays some flute, and the opening track "All Be the Same" does sound rather like Jethro Tull. More often I'm reminded of Wishbone Ash, since the guitars are quite high-flown, beautiful and melodic. Also the spirit of King Crimson hovers somewhere above the album, especially when it comes to the vocals, and there's a bit of Gentle Giant in there as well. The music isn't progressive just for the sake of being progressive, although the time is usually other than 4/4. What separates this band from the other Swedish prog bands of the moment is that they don't have a keyboard player.

Chillihounds - Shake Your Skull (IMPORT) (CD) Cover Art Chillihounds - Shake Your Skull (IMPORT) (CD)



"Shake Your Skull" is classic rock for a new generation. Even though the foundation lies steadily upon the heaviness of Black Sabbath and the riffing rampage is similar to early AC/DC, what makes this ten track onslaught unforgettable is the sonically in-yer-face production. To top it all of, the soaring vocals sounds like they belong to the long lost twin brother of Glenn Danzig or Ian Astbury (The Cult), making this a must hear for a new generation of riff loving fans. Even though the focus is set on the crunching sheer power of hard rock, a song like "Evil Mind Blues" pays respect to the laid back feel of southern rock, while the pumping groove of "Heartbeater" is music made for filling dance floors around the world. Nevertheless, what makes "Shake Your Skull" stand out in a crowd is because its filled to the brim with unforgettable choruses you can clench your fist and sing along to.

Divine Baze Orchestra, The - Dead But Dreaming (IMPORT) (CD) Cover Art Divine Baze Orchestra, The - Dead But Dreaming (IMPORT) (CD)



An established name in the Scandinavian progressive scene, The Divine Baze Orchestra has been working on their sound for almost eight years. Their debut "Once We Were Born" received good reviews all over the continent, and now the quintet announce the release of their anticipated sophomore album, entitled "Dead but Dreaming". The lead singer and guitarist Oliver Eek describes the new album as a tribute to H.P Lovecraft, the late legendary fantasy writer. "The lyrics", Oliver continues, "are heavily inspired by Lovecraft's work, especially the "Cthulu"-suite, and deals with themes such as cosmic horror and forces that stand above the power of humanity."

The five members' great musical talent is apparent, with complex arrangements that never limit themselves to genre, but at the same time accurately follows the lyrical twists and turns. "Dead But Dreaming" sounds like no other album in the genre, and marks a big step in the development of progressive and art rock music. A must-have for fans of H.P LOVECRAFT, KING CRIMSON and URIAH HEAP.

Divine Baze Orchestra, The - Once We Were Born... (IMPORT) (CD) Cover Art Divine Baze Orchestra, The - Once We Were Born... (IMPORT) (CD)



The Divine Baze Orchestra could be your new best friends, as they unleash their ten-track debut album, chock full of guitar solos and mellotrons. Apparently the whole thing was recorded in two days, so they're emulating the seventies more than just musically! Most of it was also done live with just a handful of vocal and mellotron overdubs. There is something refreshingly honest about a band doing it the old-fashioned way. The vocals of Alexander Frisborg are certainly distinctive and it takes a wee while to get used to them, but the organ of Daniel Karlsson and the guitars of the delightfully named Oliver Eek are instantaneously impressive, as they fill out and embellish the material. It's an accomplished debut that bodes well for any future offerings. So dig out your loon pants, get your dervish dance on, and make like it's 1972. Man.

The Divine Baze Orchestra manages to mix up a little psychedelic, blues and prog and craft a great sound that not only works on CD, but I’ll bet just rocks in a live setting. You really should check these guys out.

Musically the 10 tracks on Once We Were Born hearken back to the late sixties or early seventies. Think about bands such as early Deep Purple, Uriah Heep and others along that line. These are compositions built on a blues foundation, but then expanded and shaped by some pretty interesting outside influences such as jazz and even a bit of classical. One track will emphasize more rigid blues arrangements while the next moves all over the map. I also have to say lead vocalist Frisborg reminds me a lot of Ray Weston of Echolyn. As a matter of fact some of the tracks bear a distinct Echolyn influence. When it’s all said and done The Divine Baze Orchestra really pack a whollop. This is heavy proggy blues with some cool stuff going on behind the scenes connecting the musical dots. What this means is that these tunes have a lot of staying power. For a first time effort Once We Were Born has a lot to offer for fans of that earthy proto-progressive rock style.

Drahk Von Trip - Heart & Consequence (IMPORT) (CD) Cover Art Drahk Von Trip - Heart & Consequence (IMPORT) (CD)



There is an inherent looseness to the album, undoubtedly as a result of the majority of the music being recorded live. A variety of influences can be heard throughout the 10 tracks, which is mostly in the vein of light psychedelic/progressive rock, albeit with a degree of more ethnic styles creeping in every now and again. Vocalist Susann has a pleasing, if not overly dramatic voice, and you'd be hard pressed to tell that she is Swedish, her diction being nigh on perfect. The album is an interesting and entertaining mixture that crosses and exploits a variety of genres. A very strong debut album.

Drahk Von Trip offer us Heart & Consequences an exhilarating collection of songs which ranges from guitar-driven psych to slower more reflective passages featuring the fine vocal performance of Susann who sounds like Polly Harvey mixed with Barbara Hudson. In fact, the album has the same feel as the debut L.P. by Ultimate Spinach, although has it a thoroughly modern production, which sparkles out of the speakers.

The music is a sort of magical blend of late 60's psychedelia like Jefferson Airplane and HP Lovecraft (with the blues aspect removed and a more ethnic-folk sound used). Some of the tracks remind me a bit of traditional Swedish bands like Garmarna, but playing psychedelic rock. The band use old analog synthesizers, didgeridoo as well as some heavy guitars and great female vocals, which tell cool stories. The bass playing is very cool and very interesting. The material on this CD was recorded live in the studio. It has a great organic sound and great songs.

Faith - Blessed? (IMPORT) (CD) Cover Art Faith - Blessed? (IMPORT) (CD)



Sweden's Faith play heavy, gloomy doom. However, parts of the music can be perceived as symphonic, other parts as progressive metal and one important ingredient is folk music that certainly adds to the diversity of their material.

With Blessed?, the band steps further towards a unique mixture of doom metal, progressive with influences of Swedish folk music. This is close to a masterpiece, mixing CANDLEMASS with HEDNINGARNA, but always with a heavy approach, and one foot in the 70's doom scene!!
