Album Reviews

Candlmass’ 13th record “Sweet Evil Sun” delivers plenty of emotive melodies and crushing riffs that will appease the demons inside your head, The songs in the album evokes the inner spirit of the Swedish doom metal masters this is a heavy bombardment of powerful riffs. Out on November 18 via Napalm Records!

The excellent 9th album from Swedish power metal band Bloodbound quickly became one of my favorite ones of 2021!

A dark and brooding album that blends traditional folk sounds with modern approach. That is what Garmarna brings to the table.

Magnus Pelander, the man behind Witchcraft, made ‘Black Metal’ completely on his own, turning it into an extremely minimalist acoustic adventure.

4 Swedish girls are kicking some serious ass with their infectious rock and the outfit Browsing Collection!

With ‘I, the Mask’, you can expect the same sound as you are used to from In Flames. In great lines, they didn’t change the formula they use to make songs, through brought back some of that old school ‘Come Clarity’ era sound!

Soen takes us on a progressive ride with music that has their signature sound all over!

Old school skate punkers Satanic Surfers are “back from hell” and it’s awesome!

Helix is surprising. It’s catchy and poppy. But also sturdy and material for head banging. Definitely give it a listen if you’re in for something new.

Skraeckoedlan’s reissue of Äppelträdet, for those of you who like heavy riffs that will take you on an intergalactic expedition, and grooves so deep they could rearrange tectonic plates.
