Åskväder - God's Grace

Electrifying Swedish rockers ÅSKVÄDER makes thunder and lightning through music.
Well-balanced seasoning to the sound of the 90s Scandinavian rock scene mixed up with smoking hot riffs drenched in bluesy licks and catchy refrains. Adding thundering drum and bass groove with a topping consisting of elaborate vocal harmonies ÅSKVÄDER is Swedish and can be translated into 'Thunderstorm'. That says it all. No fuss, just straight Rock N Roll.

That they capture some of the influences from the legends of our time such as THE HELLACOPTERS and TURBONEGRO they manage to stay in their own lane creating their own style of rock for a new decade.

The new album takes the ÅSKVÄDER sound heard on the debut EP to a new level, "We wanted to keep true to our roots but to try to capture how we sound live for the feeling of the new album" says Martin Gut who handles the guitar, also adding "To play live is where we are at our best".

The mix was left to Robert Perhsson (Robert Perhssons Humbucker, DUNDERTÅGET, DEATH BREATH) to handle and this truly put an intense vibe to the album.

ÅSKVÄDER was formed in 2018 consisting of Erik Eriksson with his lightning speed bass grooves, August Waernelius on drumrolls, Albin Sörensson on lead vocals, and Martin Gut bending guitar strings and singing harmonies. The band hails from Gothenburg, Sweden.

Today's tune "God's Grace" is taken from ÅSKVÄDERs self-titled album, released March 13 2020 on The Sign Records, enjoy!
