The Good, The Bad And The Zugly: Way Out West Categories: Norway • Rock • Tracks The Good, The Bad And The Zugly: Way Out West Among my many favourite shouty Norwegians are the Hadeland based The Good The Bad And The Zugly. Their debut album, 'Anti World Music', was brilliant and judging by new single 'Way Out West' the followup, 'Hadeland Hardcore', could be even better. The song features a bitching guitar riff, a catchy ... (Click To Continue Reading)
Constables: Complex Sex Categories: Albums • Finland • Rock Constables: Complex Sex It's been almost two years since Constables were featured first on this blog with their second EP, 'Bedroom Culture'.

Kontinuum: Kyrr Categories: Albums • Iceland • Metal Kontinuum: Kyrr At first I was kind of bummed out when I got an e-mail from Kontinuum's record label guy with a download link and the message "the album is very different from the first one."
