To those not around at the time, it’s difficult to explain just what made the Pink Fairies great. Musically they were a multiple car crash involving psychedelia, heavy metal, MC5 proto-punk and hints of prog. With a big sense of humour and a lot of drugs. Did I mention the drugs? They did like the..

By some distance the most volatile..
Fifteen years after their formation, Swedish black/death extremists Netherbird are ready to release their fifth album. Only two original members are left, namely guitar player Pontus Andersson (a.k.a. Bizmark) and frontman Johan Fridell (a.k.a. Nephente), but the present line-up has been forming for the last 10 years. One of the latest additions to the band..

Petrov decided to launch this incarnation of Entombed, adding “A.D.” at the end to not stir further confusion with the (seemingly) ongoing band with Andersson, Cederlund and Hellid in the line-up (court disputes and everything aside).
