Abramis Brama - Dansa Tokjavelns Vals (IMPORT) (CD)



After their gig at DIST 2000 I know that Abramis Brama are an incredible live band and after listening a couple of times to their debut album I´m also a fan of their studio stuff. I know that most of you don´t understand Swedish... I don´t understand more than a couple of words of Spanish, but I still really like Natas from Argentina... so don´t let the language scare you off...

I finally took the chance of buying both [Abramis Brama] albums and damn are they ever good. As in "That feeling you had when you first heard Kyuss" good. This music is fresh and the riffs highly inventive. Like Natas singing in their native tongue, Abramis brings the non-Swedish-speaking-listener, most Americans I'd imagine, to a very foreign place (the best of what desert rock is about). Not being able to understand the lyrics & song titles adds a very rich dimension. The singing is more an instrument and great sounding syllables.

Abramis Brama - Live! (IMPORT) (CD)

Includes a bonus track!

Recorded live between December,2005 through June, 2006, in various cities such as Stockholm and Oslo.

This live album contains their best songs and gives you a very good impression of what these guys are about on stage. For those who didn't see them playing on the Roadburn festival in 2006, this is an absolute must have. The sound of this live album is fantastic and you almost can feel the great live vibe of these bearded Scandinavians. 'Kall Som Sten' seems to be one of the favourite tracks because every drunken Swede is singing along during the chorus. Do not expect any new sounds because Abramis Brama sound like a mixture of Grand Funk Railroad and Soundgarden, partly because of the vocals. Nevertheless they manage to create their own sound. I strongly recommend this album for every hard rock pub owner so that their customers will run to the shop to get their own copy.

Abramis Brama - Nar Tystnaden Lagt Sig (IMPORT) (CD)



This album is filled to the brim with great tunes like ”Kall Som Sten”, ”Svart” and ”Kom Gör Mig Klok”... Plenty of blues based heavy groove, you´ll dig it if you like stuff like November and Black Sabbath or basically anything good in this style done during the 70´s. But don´t think it´s just a retro trip, if you like the more modern side of stoner rock you´ll probably like this one also... It´s an album so good it´ll break any barriers of time and space...

Great songwriting, musicianship, and production. Powerful vocals that actually don't sound too much like John Garcia. Great guitars that aren't robbed of their power by being all fuzzed out. Powerful, articulate rhythm section, too. If there was any justice in the music world, this band would be ruling the radio waves right now... I can't remember the last time I heard an album so full of killer riffs. The "stoner rock" album of year so far, in my book.

Abramis Brama - Smakar Sondag (IMPORT) (CD)



This disc “smaks” their other platters (great as they are) right in the nuts. First of all, the band has upped the ante on a couple fronts. They replaced drummer Fredrik Jansson with Trisse of Grand Magus. Plus, they’ve added a 2nd guitarist, Rob Johansson from fellow Swedish maulers Backdraft. With those…ahem…minor adjustments taken care of, Abramis Brama proceed to plug in, turn up and blow their last (and quite good) album “Rubicon” into dust.

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.

Anima Morte - The Nightmare Becomes Reality (IMPORT) (CD)



Swedish instrumental quartet ANIMA MORTE plays music inspired by the classic Italian horror and giallo soundtracks made famous by Goblin, Fabio Frizzi, Ennio Morricone and many more. With their roots in classic progressive rock they make perfect use of Hammond organs, Mellotrons and Moogs to create a creepy and haunting atmosphere. Anima Morte is finally back with the follow-up to the cultclassic album 'Face the Sea of Darkness'. This time they take their '70s inspired progressive horror rock one step further. Together with producer Mattias Olsson (Anglagard, White Willow), they delve deep into dark atmospheres and intricate experimental arrangements without loosing the track of strong musical themes. Highly recommended if you enjoy the music of horror movies past, but also classic prog acts such as King Crimson, ELP and Rick Wakeman.

Bland Bladen - I Grevens Tid (IMPORT) (CD)

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)



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.

Burning Saviours - Nymphs & Weavers (IMPORT) (CD)



It can’t be a coincidence. Some of the best old school hard rock and doom bands of today’s scene come from Sweden. It seems that Swedish people know how to raise their children with the right musical principles. Burning Saviours, along with the great Witchcraft, are among the bell-wethers of a scene that is full of talented bands.

Having enriched their sound with influences by Uriah Heep, Wishbone Ash and Deep Purple, Burning Saviours continue to pay homage to favorites like Black Sabbath, Jethro Tull, Pentagram and Bang, composing music capable of standing the test of time. High composing skills, monumental guitar work, total development of musical skills and influences, they are all here. Pentagram should be proud of the fact that such a great group was named after one of their songs. His Majesty Bobby Liebling must be crying out of joy for his offspring.

Like bands like Black Sabbath, Uriah Heep, Deep Purple, Warhorse, Pentagram, Jethro Tull, and Grand Funk Railroad?

This album features nine tracks of good hard rocking fun, chock full of enough retro guitar riffs, organ, and the occasional flute to satisfy most lovers of early 70's hard rock. Frontman Fredrik Andersson handles lead vocals, acoustic guitar, flute, and organ. Ultimately it's the thick and meaty riffs of Henry Pyyjkkö (who also delivers some tasty solos) and Mikael Marjanen that really make this album, giving these songs a heavy and doomy vibe at times that pushes all the right buttons. This is the first release with a new line-up, so hopefully the personnel changes settle down as this band seems to have all the talent to make a run at the retro hard rock market.

Burning Saviours - Unholy Tales from the North (Grey) (IMPORT) (LP)

Limited edition on grey colored vinyl. With alternative artwork!

Unholy Tales From The North is Burning Saviours fifth album. This is nothing new and revolutionary. This is just pure retro sounding doom. This album is a bit heavier than the previously released albums, but fear not - it still has that typical Burning Saviours sound to it.

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.

Chair, The - Self Titled (IMPORT) (CD)



Even when The Chair’s music is built from a simple form of old school hardrock mixed with a few heavy bluesrockers that are like live jams but without the usual jam improvisation, they are in fact very effective with it, and despite a portion of simplicity it feels as if nothing else is needed as an addition. The slow headbanging drives, screaming vocals, simple riffs, the occasional dooming distortion and a few electric solos, and songs: everything sounds on its place, from the hard rock inspiration to the podium rockers of an effective live band inspiration. Suddenly, the last and longest track is more psychedelic, while keeping the core of a rocker, this is expanded with some psychedelic riffs and evolution. For those who like some old school hard rock enjoyment into a podium rocker context this should be very enjoyable.

When one American Singer-songwriter, four Swedish instrumentalists, and a massive array of heavy grooves met up, melted down, and gave the sounds and songs their textures, The time for the new lifestyle had arrived...at last. This is 70s Hard Rock, sometime between then and into the future. A tap on the back, a reminder of what Hard Rock sounded like in the beginning, and why it sounded at all. A recommended album for friends of KAMCHATKA, LANCE LOPEZ, MOUNTAIN, JOE BONAMASSA and other heavy bluesy hardrockers.

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.
