Travel with the Sun – TwentySeventeen – 2017

When there’s an email from a band that recently released their debut album in the inbox things can basically go in two directions. The first way is that it’s something kinda awkward on the album. Perhaps something that’s way to modern and doesn’t suit an old man like me. Then there’s the other possibility. That the music featured on the album is really good and you wonder why you never heard it before. This is...

Gretchen Wilson – One of the Boys – 2007

I actually reviewed Gretchen Wilson and One of the boys once before. Don’t worry, it was somewhere else and in another language. I don’t see it as a problem anyway since opinions are like perishables and are only valid for a short moment in time. Most opinions don’t differ that much over time though and only minor changes occur. Country music isn’t my favorite genre but I do listen from time to time as I find...

Helix – Walkin’ the Razors Edge – 1984

When this album was released in 1984 the song Rock You was a pretty popular tune here in Sweden. I can’t say that it was a big radio hit in that sense. Partly because I don’t remember and partly because I know that Swedish radio wasn’t fond of playing songs from metal albums as Walkin’ the Razors Edge at the time. I think that has changed somewhat over the years but I don’t know to...

Astral Doors – 2017 – Black Eyed Children

I love having friends that can recommend good music to me. Because it doesn’t really matter if you into this or that genre. It’s impossible to know it all anyway. We all need someone else to point out the music that we miss. Then again, you could ask the question how it’s possible to miss a band like Astral Doors when Black Eyed Children is their seventh album? But the truth is that I never...

The Night Flight Orcestra – Amber Galactic – 2017

I was recommended the Night Flight orchestra’s latest album Amber Galactic by a friend. I usually like to explore albums that I know nothing about. When I’m recommended it from a friend that share my tastes in music it’s even more interesting. I was told it was a Swedish band from the south of Sweden – Helsingborg. Not that such things really matter but some parts of Sweden has a higher rate of bands per...

Arturius – Arturius – 2017

Arturius is a Swedish power metal band from Gothenburg. I don’t know why so many heavy metal band originates from that city but it’s a fact. There are many bands coming from Gothenburg. I can’t say that they have much in common. Of course they are all metal band (at least those that I refer to) but apart from that I don’t see any similarities. My heart beats extra fast for metal music so I...

Some suff I listened to…

I listen to a whole lot of music but it’s only on occasion I have enough energy to write something like a review about it. I thought I would take this opportunity to very quickly describe what I have been listening to in the last week without going into any depth. But first, some background. When I was very young I listened mostly to what was played on the radio at the time. Later I...

Iron Maiden – Senjutsu – 2021

I wish I could say that Senjutsu is what we all have been waiting for, but I really can’t. Long are the days since a new Iron Maiden record swept me off my feet and conquered my soul. It isn’t bad by any standards it’s just one of those albums where you realize that you have heard it all before. Obviously, I haven’t heard these exact songs prior to listening to this album but I...

Alice Cooper – Welcome to my nightmare – 1975

Since the previous album, Muscle of Love was the last with the original Alice Cooper group, Welcome to my Nightmare is the first by the solo artist. It’s a theme album of course and I think it’s pretty obvious what the theme is. If not, there’s a hint in the title. Welcome to my Nightmare might also be the definite album that Alice Cooper is most associated with. There is a couple of song that...

Hezt – Där för dig – 2018

I recently discovered this hip-hop artist Hezt. Well, that’s his stage name anyway, let’s leave it with that. Let’s also leave that I would never have listened to him if the circumstance that I went to school with his mother back in the day. She, of course, proud of her son, shared his songs on social media and I needed to check out what it was. Actually, Hezt isn’t such a new acquaintance at all. Sh...
