The latest reviews:

Backfire - Angry God

Rebellion Records - LP -

1299_backfire.pngNew piece from this legendary Dutch HC band is called Angy God and it is released through Rebellion Records. On album cooperate many people who are into the HC scene so Oeds (Devils Blood) wrote title instrumental song, in songs Empty Shell and Black Hole you will hear Merijn (Young Ones, Sparrow Falls) and Erick (LBTS, Strongarm ant the Bullies) and alvum was engineered and produced by Igor who is original drummer of Backfire. It is released on CD (16 pages booklet) and LP (500 splattered, 250 clear and 250 black) and playtime is lightly under 30 minutes. Together you may check 12 songs (including instrumental song Angy God which has nonstandard platime – around about 4 minutes and at the beginning it is cacophonic madness which sounds like mad and not angry god). I have to say that I am not too much into HC but I know some bands :). Backife´s songs are in the swinging HC rhythm (like Empty Shell, Still in The Treneches or No Spiritual Surrender) or they are really fast (Final Days, Call My Name). I really like cumbersome one Rotten Souls (https://youtu.be/U3yyhlhHupY) which has (maybe) tripped up vocals and for me it is the best piece from the album. This really kicks your ass.

Ultima Thule - Tolkar

Dim Records - LP -

1298_ut_tolkar.jpgLast from three LP´s which were recently released by Ultima Thule is called Tolkar (which can be translated like Intepreters) and you may check nine songs on it. Again if you have a look on the title it is quite clear that these are covers…covers from Swedish artists like Evert Taube, Ted Ström, Lena Philipsson, Björn Skifs and Alf Robertson so we have there country stuff but also rock and pop ones. You will find here also some traditonal songs like the last one Hell Dig, Du Höga Nord, which is also on I Rikets Tjänst album but here is in acoustic folk/country version or songs like Allt Under Himlens Fäste and Biskop Thomas Frihetsvisa. Interpetation can be compared to originals I thin, so songs like songy Vintersaga and Håll Mitt Hjärta are slow, Balladen Om Briggen Blue Bird Av Hull or Calle Schewens Vals are faster and cheerful. Cover is similar to other two versions but the background is blue. From all three LP´s this is the slowest one when we speak about rhythm. Again I will leave it without rating because it is just covers.
