Electrifying Swedish power-trio Åskväder makes thunder and lightning through rock music. Well balanced seasoning to the sound of the 90s Scandinavian rock scene mixed up with smoking hot riffs drenched in bluesy licks and catchy refrains. Adding thundering drum and bass groove with a topping consisting of elaborate vocal harmonies Åskväder is Swedish and can be translated into 'Thunderstorm'. That says it all. No fuss, just straight Rock N Roll. While capturing some of the influences from the legends of our time such as The Hellacopters and Turbonegro Åskväder manages to stay in their own lane creating their own style of rock for a new decade. The new album takes the Åskväder sound heard on the debut EP to a new level, "We wanted to keep true to our roots but to try to capture how we sound live for the feeling of the new album" says Staffan Persson who handles the bass guitar, also adding "To play live is where we are at our best". The mix was left to Robert Perhsson (Robert Perhssons Humbucker, Dundertåget, Death Breath) to handle and this truly put an intense vibe to the album. Chemistry wise there was an instant match at the first rehearsals of the band and with a wide pallet of different musical styles and experiences Åskväder has evolved into a critically acclaimed live act with a big focus on concerts and live performances. While the lead vocals are handled by Jon Solheim, the drummer of the band in that sense they also have something rare to present which leaves a good amount of stage area perfect for the rock n roll moves of Martin Gut and Staffan Persson. Åskväder was formed in 2018 consisting of Staffan Persson with his lightning speed bass grooves, Jon Solheim on drumrolls and lead vocals and Martin Gut bending guitar strings and singing harmonies.

it sounds new and fresh, pulsing with life and energy, and the choice for the simplest instrumental tunes that could be found was a wise decision (...) 9/10
