Märvel - L.O.V.E. Machine

MÄRVEL takes on the classic "L.O.V.E. Machine" with W.A.S.P. for their second single from the upcoming album "The Hills Have Eyes". It's a well known fact that King, Burgher and Vicar are big fans of early 80's metal in all it's shapes and forms, so they felt it was natural to have the second single come in the shape of a sawblade in the crotch!

Lifted off of W.A.S.P.'s debut album from '84, and of course penned by the mighty Blackie Lawless, "L.O.V.E. Machine" is all you ever wanted and craved from a great rock track, with it's fantastic 'straight to the head' pop melodies, combined with flesh throwing riff coolness. The track has been a regular in Märvel's live sets for some time, and with their re-work, they've added their classic brand of soul, seventies rock and melodic pop to the mix, to make it truly their own.

Behind this power trio we find three young guys from Linköping, Sweden; John Steen, Ulrik Bostedt and Tony Samuelsson who founded the band Marvel during their high school exchange year in Colorado, USA., 2002.

The cover artwork as well as gatefold spread and back of the 12", was created by Anu Bring, a Finnish 32 year old dog loving DTP-operator. She works with ink, markers, coffee, acryl, charcoal and watercolor but the choice for The Hills Have Eyes was ink and coffee. "I start with a pencil sketch, try to get the flow going and then move on to inking or brushing coffee. I amp up the coffee tones with ink or sometimes with black watercolor." Anu says. She's inspired by the art of Niklas Stålvind and Derek Riggs and she get inspiration from comic book art, album covers and most of all music. "Without music there's emptiness. This album artwork project has been very close to my heart as I'm also a fan of Märvel."

Today's cover "L.O.V.E. Machine" is taken from the forthcoming album "The Hills Have Eyes", out September 18:th 2015, produced by Fred Estby and MÄRVEL, and released by Killer Cobra Records. The single cover drawn by Papa Bear. The video was animated by Alfred Lindahl with photo by David Einar and Johnny Lindahl.
