Östra Aros - Stormvarning!

Pretty Shitty Town Records - LP -


1273_OSTRA-AROS-stormvarning.jpgÖstra Aros Stormvarning! LP Pretty Shitty Town Records 2021 Third album of this Uppsala based band is out as LP on PST Records. Blue or black LP (250 copies each) is packed in the gatefold sleeve with all lyrics and some pictres (four horsemen, skulls, boots or viking symbols). Together there are 11 songs (on playtime around about 30 minutes) including one cover from Great Funk Railroad but with swedish lyrics - Vi Är Ett Svenskt Jävla Band (We´re an American Band). Östra Aros consists of three rockers (two with walrus mustache) and one skin and this combination makes fuckin´ perfect music which hit you like steamroller in high speed. Rhythm is faster in dirty rock´n´roll style with steel sounding guitar like in Den Sista Striden (The Last Battle), Guld Till Sand (Gold on Sand) or Uppsala Rock´n´Roll. Sometimes you may hear touches of viking rock (Vila i Frid – Rest in Peace where a part of the song is sung a capella or the beginning and main riff of Vanligt Folk – Normál People). All songs are melodic and have catchy refrains – just check Bränna Broar – Burning Bridges, slower Medelklassens Barn (Middle Class Kids) or above mentioned Den Sista Striden. This whole LP is perfect hotchpotch which takes their best from rock´n´roll, punk, blues rock or metal. Vocals are rough just right and it fits perfect to the music. This music drag you in even if you will not understand the lyrics. This is as perfect as their previous album!

Cœur Vaillant - Mercenaire

Combate Brutal Records - EP -


1272_coeur_vaillant.jpgSome of the last releases from Combate Brutal were French bands/projects and the last LP from them is in that way also. Cœur Vaillant (Brave Heart) is project with Dave (guitar) and Jibé (bass and vocals) from bands such as Tchernobyl, Faction-S, Toholl´s or Chrome Reverse for example. How it is with the drummer I can´t say. The band released three songs demo on tape this year and this is what you receive now on single sided LP with black or whit cover (100 copies from each). First two songs are from the boys - Mercenaire (Mercenary) and Croix de Feu (Cross of Fire) and the last one Porte Tes Docs is cover Boots on his Feet from Scottish Skin Deep. Rhythm is slower with nice and catchy guitar (Mercenaire with sounds of battle) and both members are helping each other with vocals. I really like (and I was quit surprised with the topic) second piece Croix de Feu which sounds like Portuguese Gume (many chants and slow rhythm) and it is dedicated to French organization founded after the 1st World War (on lyrics sheet is their logo). Cover from Skin Deep is smoother then original version from 1985. LP and graphics are perfect (illustrations from Dürrera, Burgkmaira, Morrise and Wood-Stevense), inside is paper with lyrics, band photo and short thankslist plus big A2 poster with the title picture. I also like the band logo. If you like bands who know how to play something more and something out of standards, this is directly for yo (but it is sold out I think) so check them on https://coeur-vaillant.bandcamp.com/. Really great tunes.
