Sudakistan - Two Steps Back


The Stockholm based quintet SUDAKISTAN return with their second album "Swedish Cobra", again fusing their own brand of psychedelia infused rock with latino rhythms. It’s the follow-up to their acclaimed debut LP from 2015, "Caballo Negro", which was hailed as a mixture of THEE OH SEES and DEATH FROM ABOVE 1979, and released to rave reviews from the likes of Classic Rock, Uncut, The Line of Best Fit and KEXP.

Recorded at Studio Rymden, Stockholm in May and August 2017. Produced and mixed by Daniel Bengtsson, mastered by Christopher Göthberg. Artwork by Ragnar Persson. "Swedish Cobra" captures the band’s chaotic but focused live shows, showcasing a broader and more mature sound while losing none of the urgency.




Today's tune "Two Steps Back" is taken from the second LP, "Swedish Cobra", released worldwide September 7th.

Vidunder - A Fooling Dream


"A Fooling Dream" is a tune by the Swedish bluesy garage rockers VIDUNDER.

On June 2, 2017 they released the song "A Fooling Dream", the B-side from the 7" single "Thirst". This was the last tune from the band, right after the release, the band decided to let VIDUNDER go.

This is what they said.

"After six intense, and less intense years we have come to a point where we feel it's time to let go, time to put this beast into the grave.

We want to thank all of you who came to our shows, booked our shows, bought our records, distributed our records, recorded our records, drove us around Europe, followed us around Europe, bands that supported us, bands we had the honour to support and to you who helped us in any way not mentioned; THANK YOU!!! Without you guys it wouldn't have been possible and for that we are forever thankful!

A special thanks to Peter at Crusher Records, Funky Thomas, Ricky at Swamp Bookings and our nearest for believing in us and our music.

See you bat-cats out there, in one way or another!

/Jens, Martin & Linus

VIDUNDER 2011 - 2017"

Skraeckoedlan - Kung Mammut


Space, in its unfathomable vastness, has since long been a subject of fascination for those who tilt their heads toward the skies. Full of awe despite its supposed desolation, it is here we place our hopes and dreams of a better future, of continued existence altogether. It is also here, where the lines between dream and reality become too subtle to differentiate, that we find three entities emerging from the apparent void. Their figures mere shadows, as if cast by the beckoning lights that burn from lifetimes away. Though the dead air does not reverberate, these travellers know not of silence. As wielders of the mighty fuzz-science fiction rock, they seem to echo through the very core of existence, unearthing a reality more bizarre than the strangest of fictions. Yet they move forward, to the extent such a direction is possible in the depths of the universes. Their destination is unclear, as is their mission, but the cosmos is calling and they will answer. Inspired by uncertainty and with a serendipitous approach, they know but this: no power in the ‘verse can stop them!


Set in the 1920’s, Earth (Eorþe) is a mystery with Lovecraftian connotations, philosophically told through eight songs. The record is the telling of a story by author Nils Håkansson, written specifically for SKRAECKOEDLAN to put into music.

In addition to CD and standard vinyl Eorþe also comes in a very limited edition, a box set in which the album has been split into two gatefold vinyls, "Earth: Above and Earth: Below". The box comes packed with pieces of merch revolving around the story and features different artwork than the standard editions.



SKRAECKOEDLAN states this concerning the release:

“This is by far our most ambitious work of art as of yet. It’s been a real challenge to do someone else’s story justice whilst making the songs cohesive as well as standing strong on their own, but through a lot of effort we’ve done just that.”

After those words and the preview of the tunes makes me want this, even more, do as I did, preorder the album at fuzzoramastore!

The upcoming album "Earth" due to be released 15th of Feb - 2019. Preorders: www.fuzzoramastore.com *Limited Edition LP boxset available!*

Today's tune "Kung Mammut", is the first single to be released from SKRAECKOEDLANs upcoming album "Eorþe".

"This song is, more than a part of the concept that is Eorþe, a story about life and the feelings of utter hopelessness our seeming oddity of an existence can often give rise to. It is a song about letting go and leaving behind. It’s about shattering the societal mirror and its reflection of illusionary demands and expectations, leaving your unhindered gaze looking ahead, to where your true calling lies. In short, it is a song about becoming truly free.

A quick run true the new album, have fun!

Nekromant - Blood For Walpurgis


NEKROMANT is a 3-man-piece hailing from the Swedish city of Vänersborg, the band – formerly known as SERPENT – are renowned for delivering a raw, gritty and direct assault, cast in the fires and a dedicated melting pot of metallic inspirations which include BLACK SABBATH, PENTAGRAM and Texan rockers, THE SWORD.

Following the release of their self-titled album in late 2015 on Transubstans Records, the band played extensively both home and abroad at large shows such as Sweden Rock Festival and toured with fellow Swedes, Cities of Mars. Their album NEKROMANT (released under the band’s original name) received unanimous praise by critics and fans alike and led to a very successful start in 2016 for the trio. Having caught the attention of American underground giants Ripple Music, who immediately fell in love with the way the band wore their influences proudly on their sleeves, with the dark and heavy majesty of "Snakes & Liars" (2017) NEKROMANT undoubtedly carried a torch for old-school metal.


NEKROMANT:

Adam Lundqvist – Guitars
Mattias Ottosson – Bass, Vocals
Joakim Olsson – Drums

NEKROMANTs song holds less fascination with Walpurga than the whole underbelly of Walpurgis Night itself. Something is about to rise from the dead and torment the living and we get to hear the excitement of Sankt Walpurgisnacht from the perspective of one of its celebrants, with the hint that this necromancer, however malevolent, is desperately seeking to be reunited with a long lost lover. I have to say that the guitar play is an absolute delight to behold. It’s crisp, vibrant, on-point, and harmonizes splendidly with the rhythm section, which bears the marks of seasoned musicianship. Look for "The Nekromant Lives" to emerge on vinyl and CD formats via Ripple Music, released on October 19th, 2018.



Today's tune "Blood For Walpurgis" is the first single from their new album "The Nekromant Lives". The tune is a tight, twisted number about Walpurgis Night, named for the man held up by German believers as their emissary in battle against the wiles of the Devil and all them witches, in particular, which would come out to play on Hexennacht. To this day, Christians set bonfires ablaze in Saint Walpurga’s name on the eve of April 30th, with hopes of chasing away demons of all kinds.
