Rickard Ahlgren and his Danmarck is back again with a new track. It’s called “Mayfire” a song he says was inspired by “‘month of may’-arcade fire & horror”. Here he’s certainly left the garage and sounds larger than ever with ominous, alarming guitars and chanting hardcore vocals.
Henrik Lundqvist sounds like no one else. Earlier this year we heard him as The Screamer, but here he’s back with his band Nutmeg in the single “Ready Yet”. It’s high octane, straight on with an irrestistible energetic rock chorus. The video is actually a stop motion video, put together from 15000 stills.
The Malmö trio AHRM released their debut album at the start of this Autumn. They write that they’ve been inspired by 80’s and 90’s hardcore, post punk and post hardcore with a clear reference to the Washington DC sound that they all grew up with. The songs are ine general punkishly short, like live explosions of energy, it’s intense, dark, and they sound like no one else I’ve heard in the neighbourhood.
Here’s the second single from Rideau, “Ecstasy”, a song where they pick up the speed and seem to have pushed all the sweaty rock energy they’ve got into the track. It’s frenetic rock with a stroke of metal and hardcore but they have their own path just outside these genres. They even surprise with a brilliant saxophone solo! in the middle of the song. Hopfully we get to hear an album from the band soon.
