Crushing everything in their path with waves upon waves of punishing fuzz, Sweden’s Truckfighters burst back onto the scene with their fifth album, cunningly titled V. Now onto their 8th drummer, El Danno, (proper Spinal Tap shit going on here) – they’ve suffered some drastic line-up changes since their inception; hopefully now, they can remain stable for a bit!
Refused – Freedom
You’ve got to admire the guts of these Swedes. Returning/reforming back in 2012 for some shows, which from all accounts from everyone who was lucky enough to see them have been “the best band I’ve ever seen.” Then the announcement of going into the studio to record some more songs.
Kira – Persona EP
Despite their sweet-sounding name, Sweden’s Kira are anything but delicate. It’s not so much as no love lost, as love thrown under the car and set on fire. Kira are about the scratching, blast of tender, pulsating dread and terror.
