Hot Breath are another hard-hitting foursome from Gothenburg, Sweden, maintaining the tradition from those parts for steaming Garage Rock / Power Pop. Straight-forward rock'n'roll without too many frills, but with a powerful woman lead singer who reminds me of Girlschool, Ellen Foley, Joan Jett and the Runaways, Pat Benatar.....you get the picture! The band is..
I reviewed Grande Royale's last release a year ago, almost to the day. That album Take It Easy had a distinctly southern rock flavour to it, being packed with great tuneful chunks of classic but contemporary southern rock, juicy riffs, great lead licks, melodic vocals and thundering bass lines, with plenty of variety along the..
New album coming 2021 FFO: Godflesh, The Prodigy, Fear Factory, Meshuggah Emerging from the depths of 2020 with a brand new single, Helsinki electronic groove metal outfit Khroma are here to deliver an assaulting soundtrack of cinematic atmospheres and ambiences, down tuned guitar patterns and pulsating trip hop and drum'n bass beats.

"Your Favorites" is the raw and primitive debut album from Dictator Ship, the latest band to have been signed up by Swedish record label The Sign Records. (It seems The Sign are on a mission to spread the word about 'Scando-Rock' in all its forms to a global audience!) The CD continues a recent trend..
Now then, a new Scando Rock album with a difference! You could be forgiven from several recent reviews and interviews that virtually the entire rock scene in Scandanavia, and certainly in the hotspots of Stockholm, Goteborg and Jonkoping in Sweden, was sort of "newer wave Power Pop". These guys in Grande Royale stand out from..
Anyone out there remember Power Pop? It’s the closest tag I could think of for a lot of music coming out of Sweden from the nineties onwards that’s collectively badged as Swedish Action Rock. Among the early leaders of this movement were bands such as The Hellacopters, H.E.A.T. and Entombed, but there’s plenty more where..
