Armageddon Rock

Release: 2016
Genre: Heavy/Extreme

Definitely an interesting combination of musical elements
COMMENTS:
What these Swedes do on their debut EP is rather unique and kind of hard to classify. A very general sort of modern heaviness, sometimes bordering on extreme, spiced with vintage touches like... organ? Yes. A very loose comparison might be High On Fire with higher pitched (but still rough) vocals and organ comping reminiscent of vintage Uriah Heep or Deep Purple. Musical vibes (and apparently lyrical themes) lean towards the apocalyptic, and the vocals have an angry, frantic feel that suits this mood well. Definitely an interesting combination of musical elements. Keep an eye on these guys!
