Already the cheeky start of their video Falsarium with the Kumbaya chanting weirdos wins this band a mention on the RockmusicRaider log-book of cool music videos. Just when my internal what-the-fuck emergency switch wanted to kick into action, this screaming rock piece started in earnest.
I had to laugh so hard, when the sorry acoustic guitar was ripped out of this guy’s hand and the sound kicked out of the ground like a fucking rocket into space. Good one! But more to that later.
The culprits are the Swedish rock band Skallbank, and they like it rough and heavy. They present us with a pretty wild ride of five metal-infused rock tracks called Skallbank: The Singles. Stuff they produced steadily since the inception of the band in 2014.
Their hefty, but somewhat punkish brand of rock gone AC/DC on steroids is pretty standard in many ways. However, the screamed vocals just add this much needed spice to make you want more. Add a ton of meaty riffs and stellar soloing to this rocky metal platter, and you end up with a real tasty piece of work.
I really liked what I heard. Let there be more.
