Molior Superum - Sweet Oblivion

MOLIOR SUPERUM is residing in Gothenburg, Sweden. A band that I stumble upon by accident, caught my attention with their high-energy tunes inspired by the 70’s heavy, dirty blues rock and mixed with the fuzzy-faced lovechild of 70's hard rock.

The latest album "As Time Slowly Passes By..." was recorded at Welfare Sounds Studio in Gothenburg. Produced and mixed by Kalle Lilja. Mastered by Magnus Lindberg. It's an interesting piece of music, with great variation and cool shifts. The tunes a mixed between English and the native Swedish language. Well worked out riffing with a delicious twist gives the tunes a powerful punch of heaviness.


Oskar Öberg - Gitarr,
Carl Isaksson - Gitarr/Sång,
Lars Sandström - Bas/Sång,
Jens Fuglede - Trummor/Sång

Album limited to 300 copies.
100 black 100 White 100 Clear/smokey

Today's tune "Sweet Oblivion" is taken from "As Time Slowly Passes By...", released January 14, 2019. As they comment on their video "This is what happens when you want to make a music video, but you don't have any money...", enjoy!

Joseph Tholl - It's Just Rock n' Roll

Swedish multi-instrumentalist and singer/songwriter Joseph Tholl, a rock musician led BLACK TRIP to create two fantastic albums "Goin Under" (2013) and "Shadowline" (2015), musically much different from the speed metal ENFORCER or the thrash metal in legendary anti-trendy CORRUPT and more in the vein of contemporary-sounding classic hard rock. But complications with the name led to BLACK TRIP becoming VOJD.

All the elements that have made up his career so far fall down and find their natural place when Joseph Tholl releases his solo album DEVIL'S DRUM on October 18, 2019 via High Roller Records (DE). An album of great rock - suggestive, beautiful, sometimes dissonant, vibrant and urgent.

The album was Mixed by Robert Pehrsson at Studio Humbucker, Mastered by Patrick Engel at Temple of Disharmony.

Robert Eriksson - Drums
Joseph Tholl - Vocals, Guitars, Bass, Piano

Bombus - Vulture Culture

As civilization crumbles, everyone needs to find a good party at the end of the world. Loud, proud, bombastic and belligerent, Swedish metal crew BOMBUS have been raging against the dying of mankind’s light for the last decade, a consistent and reliable force for massive riffs and even bigger choruses, wielding enough fire and fury to power a fleet of Death Stars.

That "Vulture Culture" with BOMBUS step up the ladder and grabs the banner "Record Of The Week" is nothing strange, but it's a fact after having released such a melodic gem like this.

Gothenburg's fourth album "Vulture Culture" where the human decay and the impending doom of the planet are in focus. Heavy subject indeed, but BOMBUS with their clever craftsmanship, they manage to make the album interesting and with enough melodic swing in the tunes they keep up the party feeling. It is simply another in the line of high-quality rock albums to fall in love with and develop a robust relationship within the long run.

Compared to its predecessors, "Vulture Culture" does not represent a significant development from the predecessor "Repeat Until Death" and "The Poet & The Parrot", it feels somehow more uplifting and fresh, more up to date so to speak. It lands on the records store disks in perfect time, a record that you need right now even if you didn't know that until you read these lines, but hey now you do. It's perfect to party with when the doomsday is here.

From the brilliant opening tune "A Ladder – Not A Shovel", heavy guitar riffs, cutting melody, punkish vocals that kicks your buttocks... it flows forward like a tank in the middle of the night, with just over four minutes rampaging, the trip takes an unexpected turn outside of its normal comfort zone. To the uplifting anthem "(You Are All Just) Human Beings", delivered with maximum passion and punch that will dig deep into your skull like a true ear-worm do. Same goes with "In The Shadows", high tempo, chugging guitars riffs, groovy vocals and a melody that get stuck like a piece of gum in your forehead. The melodic bouncing one "Mama", great lyrics and the unexpected outro with the children chanting "Do What Your Mama Said", I can just agree. "We Lost A lot Of Blood Today", "Feeling Is Believing" and the title tune "Vulture Culture" are bombastic mid-pace pieces with massive sounds, groovy melody, and heavy riffing, screamy vocals. "It’s All Over" shows the band's other side with a clean and quiet way of delivery with such a passionate singing that makes me completely kneeled. On "Two Wolves And One Sheep" you will hear the band standing on one leg until they shift to the other and back again, balancing the more extreme moments that show up a new side of BOMBUS. The attraction to "Vulture culture" is immediate and I'm happy that they manage to pull this one off with such great quality.

The album was recorded with producer Daniel Johansson and mixed and mastered by Jens Bogren (OPETH, KATATONIA, AT THE GATES). The album was released on the 15th of November.


Feffe (Guitar & Vocals) 
Matte (Guitar & Vocals) 
Simon (Guitar)

Sum: "Vulture Culture" is really addictive, an album that should be played on Repeat, Until Death!

Heavy Pettin - Sole Survivor

Sunday, time for a classic!

"Sole Survivor" is a tune by the Scottish NWOBHM Heavy Rock Band HEAVY PETTIN.

HEAVY PETTIN was formed in Glasgow in mid-1981 when the band Weeper, comprised of guitarist Gordon Bonnar, bassist Brian Waugh and drummer Gary Moat, added vocalist Steve Hayman and lead guitarist Punky Mendoza to the line-up.

HEAVY PETTIN' first stirred into action when vocalist Hamie, guitarists Gordon Bonnar and Punky Mendoza, drummer Gary Moat and bassist Brian Waugh first burst out of Glasgow in 1981. They were vibrant, priapic, anthemic and focused. As they showed on a three-track demo, and on the subsequent debut single for independent label Neat ("Roll The Dice"/"Love Xs Love"), they were more than mere DEF LEPPARD slaves. In fact, the PETTIN’ had an international sound that owed something to AC/DC, UFO, THIN LIZZY and FOREIGNER, but also had its own raging momentum.

Not that the band found the road straightforward. But, thanks to a work ethic that took them around the country, plus a valuable session for Radio 1’s prestigious ‘Friday Rock Show’, the band eventually landed a crucial deal with the major label Polydor Records. Moreover, their 1983 debut album ("Lettin’ Loose") was co-produced by the creative Mack together with QUEEN guitarist Brian May. Now, that’s pedigree. Amazingly, that album has survived more than 20 years of high-speed hi-tech developments intact. While other, more celebrated records have dated badly, "Lettin’ Loose" re-affirms the belief back then that the Pettin would follow LEPPARD to big time stature. What went wrong at the time has little to do with band, or lack of ambition/talent.

In 2017, original members Hamie, Punky, and Gordon joined by Jez Parry on bass and Michael Ivory on drums performed for the first time in 25 years at Scotland’s WinterStorm. Reinvigorated, HEAVY PETTIN, now joined by ex-GUN guitarist Dave Aitken due to Punky hanging up his guitar and going in to retirement, did several shows in 2018 including a 6 date UK tour, with 3 sold out gigs in Nottingham, London and Edinburgh, as well as 2 sold out headline gigs in Milton Keynes and Glasgow.

The 2019 HEAVY PETTIN’ assault started in North Wales with HRH AOR Festival, then off to Germany’s Headbangers Open Air Festival in July, and a Aug/Sept tour including The Golden Age of Rock Festival Belgium, with Dee Snider and Angel, plus a mainland British tour with RockGoddess. HEAVY PETTIN' are currently finishing out the year recording and mixing a new EP for mid-February release. Hamie has said “…the demand and support for new HEAVY PETTIN material has been so overwhelming, we are excited to say we’re now working on brand new HEAVY PETTIN album too! Which will also be released later in 2020… and it’s going great!"

Today's tune "Sole Survivor" taken from the second album "Rock Ain’t Dead", enjoy!

Torche - Admission

15 years into their career, TORCHE have established themselves as a cornerstone of American heavy rock. Their new album, "Admission", sees the band expanding on the themes and songwriting prowess that have always reverberated with music fans throughout their critically acclaimed discography. "Admission" feels like their most personal album so far. TORCHE's guitar work is loaded with the drawl of syrupy-sludge riffing, proving to be more crushing than ever before. The band, led by mastermind Jon Nunez, craft unforgettable vocal harmonies with hook-driven, pop sensibilities to match.

"Admission" is the fifth studio album by the American metal band TORCHE released on July 12, 2019 through Relapse Records. This is the bands first material since their previous album "Restarter", released in 2015. The album was produced, engineered and mixed by longtime bassist Jonathan Nuñez and is the first to feature Eric Hernandez on bass guitar after former guitarist Andrew Elstner's departure in November 2016. "Admission" was well received by music critics

Today's tune "Admission" is the title tune from the bands latest release, enjoy!

Amenra - A Solitary Reign

The Belgian AMENRA have been paving their own headstrong way in the 12 years since their inception, from overlooked releases and poorly attended show to critically acclaimed albums, sold-out shows and the utmost respect of their listeners, peers and even heroes. Always putting heart and soul into every note, word, and image and changing the course of people’s lives everywhere their path leads them.

AMENRAs latest studio album "Mass VI" is an emotional rollercoaster until its very last second until Diaken is abruptly ended at its very climax, as the last breath of an expiring life.

Every band member is seemingly being stretched to their physical limits throughout. Colin puts in the performance of a lifetime, but he is inextricably intertwined to the guitarwork of Mathieu J. Vandekerckhove and Lennart Bossu is able to express unimaginable weight, both physical and spiritual, as well as weaving melodies of the utmost delicacy, while the rhythm section of Levy Seynaeve and Bjorn J. Lebon can either rumble like a consuming thunderstorm or retreat to the shadows with the same flowing spontaneity as the atmosphere dictates.

No love without pain. No life without death. No light without darkness. That is the conflict at the heart of Mass VI, at the heart of each and every one of us, at the heart of what it means to be human, to live and to love and to lose, and few other pieces of music will wrench that ambivalence out of us and present it in such an acutely overwhelming fashion.

It's hard to think of a better person to capture this sonic enormity than Billy Anderson. The legendary American producer was already the chosen one for "Mass V", and between NEUROSIS "Through Silver In Blood", SLEEPs "Dopesmoker", EYEHATEGODs "Dopesick", CATHEDRALs "Endtyme" or BRUTAL TRUTHs "Sounds Of The Animal Kingdom", among many others. "Mass VI" was recorded in the Belgian Ardennes, a region of thick forests in the south-east of the country, where the band was snowed in for a week.

"Mass VI" have been released in 2 versions of the album: one mixed by Billy Anderson and mastered by Justin Weis (released in US via Neurot Recordings) and another mixed and mastered by Jack Shirley (released in Europe via Consouling Sounds).

These versions have different artwork, track titles, sound and track durations (the biggest difference is on the opening track "Children Of The Eye" - 11:49 for the European version vs. 9:41 for the US version).

Today's tune "A Solitary Reign" is taken from "Mass VI", enjoy!

Body Count - Raining Blood

Magic Thursday is here, time to dig up a Cover that rocks.

"Raining Blood" is a song by the American thrash metal band SLAYER. Written by Jeff Hanneman and Kerry King for the 1986 studio album "Reign in Blood", the song's religious concept is about overthrowing Heaven.

The song is four minutes and fourteen seconds in duration. It ends with a minute of rain sound effects. It's a "classic" metal tune and it is noted by fans as one of SLAYERs most popular songs. As an almost permanent addition to their live sets, both Hanneman and King acknowledged it as their favorite song to play live. Many of SLAYERs live performances of the song have been captured on the band's live albums and also multi-band compilation albums including MTV2 Headbangers Ball.

There have been many appearances of the song in the media and elsewhere, including the South Park episode "Die Hippie, Die", and the video games Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock, where it is considered difficult to play.

Many artists have made a cover of the tune during the years, like the magific version by Tori Amos, it has also been covered by MALEVOLENT CREATION, HAVOK, Natalie Prass, BODY COUNT, VADER, DIECAST, QUIET COMPANY, REGGIE AND THE FULL EFFECT and Erik Hinds, who covered the entire Reign in Blood album on a "H'arpeggione". The guitar riffs from "Raining Blood" and "Mandatory Suicide" were sampled by rapper LIL JON in the song "Stop Fuckin Wit' Me" from the 2004 album "Crunk Juice". It was Rick Rubin's only collaboration with LIL JON on the record. Jon wanted to create a "black version" of SUICIDAL TENDENCIES' song "Institutionalized". The New Zealand drum and bass group CONCORD DAWN produced a drum and bass cover version on their album "Uprising", on which they partially sample the famous opening riff of the song.

Today's version is the American heavy metal BODY COUNT, released on the sixth studio album "Bloodlust", enjoy!

Wolfmother (feat. Chris Cester) - Chase The Feeling

Aussie hard-rockers WOLFMOTHER have released a video for their brand new tune "Chase The Feeling", featuring Chris Cester from JET.

It’s a rock anthem that comprises their signature, musical specialties.

With Cester’s fun rhythms, WOLFMOTHERs classic riffs, and Andrew Stockman’s whirring vocals. JETs Chris Cester also lends his vocals to the track, contrasting nicely with Stockman’s.

“Way back in the day when we were recording the first WOLFMOTHER record, Chris invited us all over for a barbecue at his house in LA,” says WOLFMOTHER frontman Andrew Stockdale. “I think we all appreciated the sense of camaraderie he and the band had shown us in the early days, so it’s kind of cool to acknowledge these times by combining forces with a collaboration.

“With Chris’s signature style drumming, rock speak and his old mate Jason Hills production wizardry, we managed to give one of my riffs a bit of a Hollywood nip and tuck, without over polishing the wild beast. Now it’s morphed into it’s own hybrid anthem for many future backyard cook ups and late night dive bar meanderings.”

“Andrew and I have known each other for years,” adds Chris, “and when he’d come to LA we’d always say, ‘Let’s do something let’s jam or whatever.’ So one day he comes over with this riff, we finished writing it in an hour or two, recorded it all in a couple more. No computers, no BPMs making it all robotic – all live. I think we did six takes!? It felt good to roll the tape and just deal with the consequences… next to a digital record, it sounds like an animal to me”.

Chase The Feeling is the first taste of new WOLFMOTHER material, coming in 2020.

Bokassa - Vultures

BOKASSA released its latest album, "Crimson Riders" and pretty recently they have unveiled the official video the tune "Vultures", taken from their latest album.

New album "Crimson Riders" was recorded back home in Trondheim’s Brygga Studio, with production by Yngve Andersen (BLOOD COMMAND), mixing by Simon Jackman, and mastering by the legendary Grammy-winner Brian “Big Bass” Gardener (Dr. Dre, BAD RELIGION, AVENGED SEVENFOLD, CREEDENCE CLEARWATER REVIVAL).

After the tour with METALLICA they are now out for a UK & European headline tour, see all the dates below.

Today's tune "Vultures", taken from "Crimson Riders", enjoy!

BOKASSA frontman Jørn elaborates, “To us ‘Vultures’ always had a desert road trip kind of groove to it. But there aren’t many deserts where we’re from in Norway, so we made this psychedelic wacky road trip video instead. It was shot in Manchester, UK, the day after we played Stade De France in Paris!”

Opeth - In Cauda Venenum

New week, time to introduce "Record Of The Week".

"In Cauda Venenum" the 13th album by the Swedish progressive rockers OPETH. It's a sonic brew of "13 miljoner 100 tusentals" (13 million 100 thousands).

That OPETH set out to do something a little different with the album "In Cauda Venenum", he decided to release two versions, one in English and one in Swedish. Outside of vocal cadence, the records are the same. Take your pick or buy them both as I did :)'

The fact that the English version may certainly be the more accessible of the two. But that the Swedish version becomes more real and more "True" for us Swedes is not strange but fully understandable, that Mr. Åkerfeldt voice is just lovely when he’s singing in his native tongue, when he expresses himself in a more normal way with his native language makes it closer, clearer and easier to get a grip of his thoughts and feelings significantly more than when he is trying to translate. Even if his English lyrics are high class the use of Swedish makes a bigger impact on me. Still, both have strong songwriting no doubt about that. The resonating guitar solo, instrumentally and the vocals are the stars here, no matter the version.

The album is a massive piece with its 67 mins of playtime divided into 10 tunes. The album is an amazing sounding album, a band in a playful mood with engaging tunes full of passion and life. It's a true delight instrumentally and really fun to play and suits perfectly with a glass of red wine and slippers around the open fire that burns lively in the living room along with OPETH in your speakers. From the brilliant way to start in "Svekets Prins" (Dignity), excellent guitar playing with a guitar solo that gives goosebumps and the superb vocals from Åkerfeldt. Heavy riffing opens up the progressive rocker and the album's first single "Hjärtat Vet Vad Handen Gör" (Heart In Hand) that takes you on a frenetic dopamine ride. "De Närmast Sörjande" (Next Of Kin) is a heavy and dark tune that musical and lyrically is a masterpiece. The freakout piece "Charlatan" with shredding bass licks in a spaced-out religious world. "Banemannen" (The Garroter) and "Kontinuerlig Drift" (Continuum) are two of the more spectacular halfpace tunes. "Ingen Sanning Är Allas" (Universal Truth) is another beauty. Albums finale "Allting Tar Slut" (All Things Will Pass) flows in a bit jazzy way, flawless guitars and marvelous drumming make this a perfect and powerful ending of an excellent album. "In Cauda Venenum" shows the sheer level of talent that OPETH has taken and this is the best record for the band since "Heritage".

Sum: The 4th and strongest of the albums in the band’s progressive path.

Today's tune "Svekets Prins" (Dignity) is taken from "In Cauda Venenum", Released on September 27th, 2019 on Moderbolaget and Nuclear Blast. Enjoy!

Manfred Mann's Earth Band - Father Of Day, Father Of Night

Sunday and Father's Day.

To celebrate all dads around this globe, a classic tune that suits this day is "Father Of Day, Father Of Night", written by Bob Dylan. But this version is taken from "Solar Fire", the fourth studio album by MANFRED MANN'S EARTH BAND, released in 1973.

So today I remember my dad, thinking of the time at our summer house around spring, a great day behind the house with a grilled hot dog and a glass of Trocadero in my hand, you could hear the snow melting in the sun and the early birds singing in the sky. It was a great day and a wonderful memory.

Today's tune "Father of Day, Father of Night", taken from "Solar Fire", enjoy this all the dads! Today's clip is Live on Solliden stage at the outdoor museum in Skansen, Stockholm for the Swedish TV.

Lüt - Prisen

Saturday, time for a dance, a real dance with the Norweigan LÜT.

In just a short amount of time LÜT has established themselves as one of Scandinavia's most exciting new rock bands. They have developed a unique, tight and energetic live show based on riveting melodies and massive guitar riffs. They are following the same footprints as TURBONEGRO and KVELERTAK, melodic and heavy at the same time.

Despite that they are at the very beginning of their career, LÜT has already checked off some major merits on their bucket list. One of the largest Norwegian radio stations NRK P3 played both “Du Vet Ingenting” and “Boytoy” on heavy rotation. In 2017 they were nominated for the Norwegian Grammys “Spellemannprisen” in the category “Best new act”, they were also nominated for “Best live act” at P3 Gull the same year. The jury described why one should go see LÜT live when they arrive in your hometown.

Well, I will do if they get around here someday.

LÜT are:

Marius James Platt (Bass)
Ørjan Nyborg Myrland (Guitar)
Markus Danielsen Danjord (Lead Vocals)
Sveinung Engvik (Drums)
Mads Erlend Ystmark (Guitar)

Today's tune "Prisen" is taken from the band's debut album "Pandion", the clip is filmed live @ Mackhallen 2017.

Tourette Boys - Evil

There is no doubt that the oscillating solitude of the central sorbian steppe can be heard in the sounds of the TOURETTE BOYS. Their music combines dusty and earthy truthfulness and breaths and celebrates the road and produces heat flickering images of the lone wolf’s fate. Musically, they are deep and bluesy and blessed with a nearly ecclesiastical singer on their continuous hunt for the psychedelic-mythical.

The music is like a mix of FLYING EYES and ALL THEM WITCHES.

TOURETTE BOYS allready shared the stage with SIENA ROOT, SLEEPY SUN, NAAM, TRUE WIDOW, BLACK LUNG and many more.

Benjamin Butter - vocals + guitar
Conrad Brod - drums
Paul-Willy Stoyan - guitar

Today's tune "Evil" taken the latest album "Zorn", released May 10, 2019.

Backstreet Girls - Motorhellway

The Norwegian rock ’n’ roll legends BACKSTREET GIRLS are back with a new album "Normal Is Dangerous!

BACKSTREET GIRLS are entirely unconnected with a certain boyband of a similar name. The Norwegian ensemble has been around since 1984 and their influences bear names like RAMONES and ROSE TATTOO.

In their homeland, Norway, BACKSTREET GIRLS are somewhat legendary after praised albums like "Boogie Til You Puke" (1988), "Party On Elm Street" (1989) and "Sick My Duck" (2003). 2019 marks the band's 35th anniversary. This will be celebrated by, for instance, releasing a 15th studio album "Normal Is Dangerous". A given highpoint for you who appreciate fast-paced, groove-laden and tough rock'n'roll, spiced with boogie and punk..

Members of the BACKSTREET GIRLS are extremely productive musicians – guitarist Petter Baarli are releasing his first soloalbum in March 2014, entitled “You Petter B. Goode”. Among the contributors on the album are Glen Matlock, Jason Ringberg, Warner Hodges, THE BOYS, Daniel Røssing (Chuck Berrys pianist), Tommy Manboy (TURBONEGRO drummer), BT Baarli (former BACKSTREET GIRLS drummer), Pål Kristensen (former BACKSTREET GIRLS bassplayer), Eivind Staxrud (RAGA ROCKERS).

The recording was mainly done during an intense week in Recpublica Studios, a state-of-the-art studio in Poland, where BSG got free rein and the opportunity for 24-hour live-in-the-studio rock'n'roll along with producer Stamos Koliousis. Stamos has previously produced a large number of Norwegian rock and metal bands, such as DJERV, FIGHT THE FIGHT, ISKALD, KEEP OF KALESSIN, VREID among many others. The combination BACKSTREET GIRLS / Stamos have created a modern, open rock sound based on a collection of guitarist Petter Baarlis trademark riffs. "Normal Is Dangerous" was released 13 September 2019.

Black Rainbows - High To Hell

Since the release of their debut album, "Twilight in the Desert", in 2007, Roma rockers BLACK RAINBOWS have become one of the most essential acts in Europe’s heavy underground. As the spearhead of an entire movement of Italian bands, They’ve issued six full-lengths to-date where the latest "Pandaemonium" came out 2018 with founding guitarist/vocalist Gabriele Fiori and bassist Giuseppe Guglielmino welcoming new drummer Fillippo Ragazzoni to the fold for the first time.

Across albums like 2010’s "Carmina Diablo" (recently reissued), 2011’s "Supermotherfuzzalicious!!", 2012's "Twilight In The Desert", 2014's "Holy Moon", 2015’s "Hawkdope", 2016’s "Stellar Prophecy", BLACK RAINBOWS sound has oozed between classic ‘90s-style stoner fuzz and deep-cosmos psychedelia, drawing on the best of hard-driving space rock to conjure a vibe totally tripped-out and all its own. By bringing Ragazzoni on board, the riffs have gotten tighter and are fuzzed as ever, and two years after their last outing, BLACK RAINBOWS are refreshed and with well-earned veteran status resulting from countless tours, festival appearances, and their track record of absolutely unstoppable energy.

Today's tune "High To Hell" is taken from "Pandaemonium". The album was recorded at Forward Studios, one of Italy's finest recording spaces. Produced by Gabriele Fiori and engineered by Fabio Sforza. "Pandaemonium" was released on April 2018. Enjoy!

Kadavar - For The Dead Travel Fast

New week, time to introduce "Record Of The Week"

The three-piece psychedelic rockers KADAVAR is back again with their fifth record "For The Dead Travel Fast", entitled after German gothic poet Gottfried August Bürger.

As always with KADAVAR is a great time to let the beast loose on the turntable, what do they have in their luggage on this creation and what is lurking in the corner this time, the expectations are pretty high as the latest album releases have had a very high quality and a cruel end product.

Here the lads take us out on a perilous journey into the land of the dead, a foray into the bleakest corners of our minds. The spooky album cover is taken in front of Dracula’s alleged crib in Transylvania, mysterious Castle Bran, the whole album is drenched in superstition, Romanian folklore and the mysterious ways of our psyche.

"For The Dead Travel Fast" have almost everything from clear singles (7") like "The Devil’s Master" and the tango rocker "Dancing With The Dead", both catchy rockers with a great swing where you will get a true euphoria after a few mins. The beautiful upbeat and energetic "Evil Forces" to vibrant soundtracks tunes like "Children Of The Night" and "Demons In My Mind" where synth and modulation seek out from the shadows like a small mist in early mornings. The album ends with two ballads, the atmospheric slow-paced "Saturnales" and the beauty bluesy "Long Forgotten Song" that have a small drum solo in the end, wicked, but it works out well here.

Christoph “Lupus” Lindemann (vocals, guitars, synthesizers), Christoph “Tiger” Bartelt (drums) and Simon “Dragon” Bouteloup (bass) have fully embraced the darkness that has been kept at bay in recent years. That old horror soundtracks and Werner Herzog’s ‘Dracula’ had a huge impact on this album can be heard in this concept piece or art, with longer, more embellished songs not particularly drawn to ordinary song structures. They have reached a new level of artistry and creative injection, to boldly go where they never went before, only to rediscover their very roots along the way. It's fascinating that they keep such a high class from album to album, magic is they repeatedly say in "Suspiria"? Now five strong albums into their stellar career and I can only clap my hands to the lads with BIG FREAKING WELL DONE.

"For The Dead Travel Fast" was released by Nuclear Blast Records on October 11, 2019

Sum: 70's psychedelic horror rock at it's best, you absolutely need this!

Today's tune "The Devil's Master" taken from today's album! Enjoy!
