Power Trip - Executioner's Tax (Swing of The Axe)


"Nightmare Logic” with the Texas hardcore thrashers POWER TRIP takes the 1st place on the Tune Of The Day's TOP 50 album list of the Best Albums 2017.

"Nightmare Logic” is the second crushing, soul mangling, neck bustin’ release. It's a record full of raw energy from start to finish, great structure, powerful rich tones and fearless riffs with a massive attitude. With hooks and tightness rivaling greats like PANTERA or PENTAGRAM and production by the esteemed Arthur Rizk, "Nightmare Logic" punishes fans not only sonically but with pure songwriting skill. This is an excellent album with great songwriting skill, the lyrics reflects human suffering, devaluation of human life by those who’ve gained power through money and politics.



This is the BEST thrash album in 2017.

POWER TRIP show their skills and prove they are here for the long haul.

Sólstafir - Ísafold


"Berdreyminn” the sixth album release from the four Icelanders SÓLSTAFIR reaches the 3 place on the Tune of The Day's TOP 100 album list of the Best Albums 2017.

"Berdreyminn" is a soundtrack full of atmospheric cathartic tunes that will drag you out from your daily routines and move you to the Icelandic plains. The album runs for almost 60 mins, with an average tune time of 7-8 minutes. "Berdreyminn" is a where bold experimentalism is mixed with transient windy riffs, amazing melodic spaces and explosive power. This is a work of art, depth droney guitars, sentimental pianos and prismatic crescendos that converge beyond the five bodily senses. With "Berdreyminn", SÓLSTAFIR pushes it to the next level of their creativity.

"Berdreyminn" is produced by Birgir Birgirsson (SIGUR RÓS, ALCEST) and Jaime Gomez Arellano (GHOST, PARADISE LOST, ORANSSI PAZUZU)


"Berdreyminn" is an impressive album, read my review here!

Elder - Staving Off Truth


ELDER, the heavy psych band hailing from Boston, USA with their fourth full length album "Reflections of a Floating World” reaches the 6th place on the Tune of The Day's TOP 100 album list of the Best Albums 2017.

This is an album that suits the autumn darkness that hides on the doormat. The main man Nick DiSalvo claims that COLOUR HAZE and DUNGEN are "the bands that have really influenced the methodology or the philosophy behind the new direction". I see the point, as that is something that's bubbles in ELDERS music, even if the sound is pretty varied and heavily based around rock and metal and engine steams heaviness and riffs from bands like BLACK SABBATH and SLEEP and some psychedelia from ELECTRIC WIZARD.

Enslaved - Storm Son


"E" is the fourteenth full length studio album from the Norwegian Viking neighbours ENSLAVED and reaches the 8th place on the Tune of The Day's TOP 100 album list of the Best Albums 2017.

"E" is a record that breaths fresh air, not an old wunderbaum that starts to loose it fragrances, here its more natural essences that spreads overs the harmonies of the album. It's with an ease to play this record, excellent production with superb musical handcraft, thought out song structures, depth filled melodies where all the rhythms flows so smoothly, like a gentle hand caresses your body with sensual emotion.



Highly Recommended album, don't miss this one. Read the Review here!

Grift - Den Stora Tystnaden


"Arvet" (“The Heritage”) is the second release by GRIFT, the mastermind Erik Gärdefors project reaches the 9 place on the Tune of The Day's TOP 100 album list of the Best Albums 2017.

"Arvet" continues where "Syner" left off. Erik have made a very sensitive and emotional album where he has struggled with the endless big questions that sensitive people have always struggled with and have tried to express. From the small and seemingly insignificant in every human being, to something that always pulsates and becomes meaningful in some way; beyond the meadows and the forests.



The heritage we carry within us is something we never can escape from. An inheritance is something that characterizes every individual in often paradoxical ways. It may be a social heritage, a biological heritage, a religious heritage, etc. With this album Grift wants to illuminate the always ongoing journey from the small safe place in each mans heart to the great unforeseen life. We often think that everything is going to shape from scratch to something unique. But sooner or later we understand our vulnerabilities and falls back to what we have inherited since we were innocent children.

The album was written and recorded entirely by Erik in his studio, Eremitaget Liesmia. In addition to the usual instruments, Erik has also chosen to include the old Swedish instrument, Psalmodikon, which was used mostly during the 19th century in poor Swedish congregations. Erik has also recorded nature sounds from the forests around where he lives. A tawny owls howling, the scream of a fox, and other unspecific sounds contribute to build up the right kind of atmosphere. Three guests also contribute with their characteristic voices. Ludvig from FORNDOM, Martin from MOSAIC and Ela from NOÊTA & UNDAGTAGSFOLK.
