muschiosauro As said by fernandobenitez, this sounds as it was recorded in the early seventies, but it's not a mere exercise in style: the licks are fresh, the vibe is great, the playing is top notch and the songs are ripe with interesting ideas and musical awesomeness. Heavy rock as it should be. Favorite track: Riden Av En Mara.

The Goon Proof that music doesn't have to be heavy to rock.

Jamie Welch I love this, I had to buy the Vinyl. Mad support to all the boys in my favorite band Tribulation. All of them are so incredibly talented, I will support any project they do. Props to Jakob for his vocals, guitar and drumming skills!!

paul rote Swedesh retro rocker. Not real heavy but this is good. Witchfynde comes to mind from the seventies. Favorite track: Riden Av En Mara.

Fernando Benítez First of all, you can pay a buck for an album that could very well be an instant classic. Second, i love when bands don't have to rely on English to get their feelings across. Third, this is truly old school, sounding like a lost swedish gem from 71 or 72, kinda like a less sabbathy witchcraft mixed with prog ideas and hawkwind's drive. Plus, the drumming's great, it totally swings- funny, considering the guy's main gig is with a death metal band. So good i had to get it on vinyl! Favorite track: Riden Av En Mara.
