Hailing from < ?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" />Sweden this 4-Piece play some distorted blues based rock n roll. Formed in 2001 it took until now to get this debut out.

From the beginning it sounds familiar yet slightly fresh. It’s like a slightly heavier Cult which is due to the fact that Magnus’ vocals sound very similar to Astbury’s. Maybe that is what they are going after? Either way it is a decent disc and “Meat Me” is one of the albums better tracks. Hearing basic rock and roll with distorted guitar and under polished vocals is not usually the ‘norm’ in todays industry. Nowadays its either overproduced and fake sounding or the exact opposite and totally unpolished to sound indecipherable. Here is the middle of the line.
