Stockers!: Running Away Categories: Finland • Rock • Tracks Stockers!: Running Away Following up on two successful singles last year Finnish indie-quartet Stockers! have changed their game a bit and moved synths front and center on their latest offering, 'Running Away'. Where 'She’s Got My Love' and 'What Do You Want' had more in common with an act like, say, Editors, 'Running ... (Click To Continue Reading)

Recorded and to some extent written in a week on the small island Mjörn north of Gothenburg it is facing the somewhat daunting task of following the most excellent debut, '0001' (2010), and equally ...

Turboweekend: Share My Thunder Categories: Albums • Denmark • Rock Turboweekend: Share My Thunder It's been two years and a bit between Turboweekend's third and fourth full length. In between the four Danes have apparently been struggling with their identity as a band which turned the work with 'Share My Thunder' in to a process of finding a way back. Which I guess can ...

Ribozyme: Grinding Tune Categories: Albums • Norway • Rock Ribozyme: Grinding Tune Norway's Ribozyme have been around for some years but really peaked with 2012's 'Presenting The Problem'. That album was interesting in its effortless blend of metal, rock, industrial and a few dashes of electronica - and luckily Ribozyme don't try to reinvent themselves on 'Grinding Tune', instead opting for doing ...

Terrible Feelings: Tremors Categories: Albums • Rock • Sweden Terrible Feelings: Tremors I had mixed feelings about Terrible Feelings' (see what I did there?) debut album 'Shadows' from 2012. On one hand I loved the two tracks 'Intruders' and the angsty power pop song 'Days To Come' - on the other hand I thought the rest of the album was somewhat unspectacular ...

Omar: I Am Heavy Metal, Who Are You? Categories: Albums • Rock • Sweden Omar: I Am Heavy Metal, Who Are You? Back in 2007 Claus Wrang Michaelsen (featured here as part of the great Danish stoner rock outfit Hjortene) got his hands on an advance copy of Omar's debut album, 'I Am Heavy Metal, Who Are You?'. Then the Swedish quintet were shopping for labels to release the debut, but before ... (Click To Continue Reading)
Spidergawd: Spidergawd II Categories: Albums • Norway • Rock Spidergawd: Spidergawd II Last year Spidergawd released their eponymous debut to great critical acclaim in Norway and a Spellemann nomination for Rock Album of the Year. It's also an album that completely failed to make its way my way, so I'll have to take the press release's word for it. Luckily the quartet ... (Click To Continue Reading)
Virgin Suicide: Virgin Suicide Categories: Albums • Denmark • Rock Virgin Suicide: Virgin Suicide Recordings began in February 2014 with producer Lars Vognstrup (Lars & The Hands Of Light), but it has taken until this Monday for retro-rocking Virgin Suicide to get their debut full length out, in part because of a long distance collaboration with L.A.-based Sune Rose Wagner (The Raveonettes) who has ...

RA: Scandinavia Categories: Albums • Rock • Sweden RA: Scandinavia Malmö-based RA have been with us since July 2013 when they released their debut EP, 'Bloodline'. Since then I've waited somewhat impatiently for the then promised first full length, which finally landed a little while ago and luckily doesn't disappoint in any way. Continuing the bleak and hard post-punk off ... (Click To Continue Reading)
Van Dammes: Better Than Sex Categories: Albums • Finland • Rock Van Dammes: Better Than Sex Where their first EP - at least in title - touched on the not-so-great potential effects of (unprotected) sex Van Dammes' latest offering offers something 'Better Than Sex'. I haven't been bothered to do a thorough analysis of the lyrics, but whatever it is that's better than sex it involves ... (Click To Continue Reading)
Refused: Elektra Categories: Rock • Sweden • Videos Refused: Elektra During the 90s Refused was one of Sweden’s most influential punk bands, if not THE most influential. After splitting up in 1998 they luckily started touring again in 2012 playing Roskilde Festival among many others. Now they have finally gotten around to doing what they should have done a long ...

Warp Riders: A Tea Party With Demons Categories: Albums • Norway • Rock Warp Riders: A Tea Party With Demons Norway's Warp Riders debuted with the 'Astral Plane EP' in 2013 and have just released the followup, 'A Tea Party With Demons'. If you ask me (people rarely do, but that doesn't stop me from having opinions on everything) they should really put out an actual album or five because ... (Click To Continue Reading)
