It’s a well known fact that Sweden is regarded as one of the leading countries when it comes to hard rock and heavy metal (and all the subgenres). If you, by chance, have missed this Electric Earth will prove that it’s true with their third full length album “Touching The Void”, which will be released June 20 on their own label TySS Music.
Electric Earth started out in Trollhättan, Sweden in 2001, inspired by both old traditional hard rock bands and more modern bands – like Black Sabbath, KISS, Led Zeppelin, Foo Fighters, Stone Temple Pilots and Soundgarden. Still, they adopted a sound and style of their own. If you like groove, characteristic melodies, skilled musicians and all out rock and want music to be honest and full of life then this band is for you!
The new album is something of a comeback for Electric Earth. After several tough years with a number of personal setbacks, including the tragic death of vocalist Peter Gottlieb’s wife in March 2009 (R.I.P.), their passion and love for music made them over come all the difficulties they had gone through. With “Touching The Void” they are back in full force, determined to once again do what they do best – rock hard! Listen to the album and go and see them live as its on stage they take it to a new level.
