Follow The Cipher

Follow The Cipher By Jonas Asplind, Karl Löfgren, Linda Toni Grahn JA:  We want to catch the feeling of something big and bombastic; like Hollywood movies in the style of Mad Max and Terminator when you hear us. KL: Chris Rörland made the cover (he’s most famous for playing the guitar in Sabaton). The songs…

Taken by the Tide

Revenge by Phil Illsley Our new record ‘Revenge’ was out Aug 3rd, 2018. It’s the culmination of a couple of years of struggle and difficulties. It represents the band, against all the odds, pushing forward. We do things a little strangely in this band. I’m not sure if it’s because of happenstance or [we joke…

Omnium Gatherum

The Burning Cold by Jukka Pelkonen The musical backgrounds of every member differ a bit. There is a classical background, studying the theory of music, a lot of playing in different groups etc. It is pretty basic stuff. Of course the music we have listened and also listen influences and serves as background material for…

Alien Weaponry

Veld

S.I.N. by Kirill Bobrik I think ‘S.I.N.’ it’s a more serious and very close to the ideal sound and style of the Veld. We were working a very hard and extended time on every element on this work. More fast, more epic atmosphere, more dark, more ravenous and much more aggressive and blasphemous aura. Without…
