The Quill
Born from Fire
Company: Metalville
Release: 2017
Genre: Doom/Stoner
Reviewer: Eric Compton
Published: 8/30/2017

Comeback album for these Swedish stoners
COMMENTS:
The same classic lineup that recorded 'Hooray! It's a Deathtrip', 'Voodoo Caravan' and 'Silver Haze' is back together, complete with powerhouse vocalist Magnus Ekwall. While the last two The Quill records were very good, it didn't quite have that 70s heavy metal magnitude. 'Born from Fire' is bristling with soaring vocals, heavily distorted grooves and a lively percussion (Jolle Atlagic of Hanoi Rocks, Firebird). It's a convincing revival and a much-needed return to triumphant form. The Swedes are back!
RECOMMENDED FOR FANS OF:
Firebird, Spiritual Beggars
