They tell stories of…

Fatal Casualties – “Psalm” album review

Fatal Casualties – “Psalm” album review

  As I had discovered this project by chance, I was indeed very happy to have made such a discovery. I was trying to get some more info about this Swedish duo consisting of Stefan Ljungdahl & Ivan Hirvonen, but their music was sufficient for my curious mind. When it comes to Psalm, it is very thoughtfully made, I don’t believe anything on this album was done by accident or trying to please a broader…

John Lindqwister on Machinista, Sweden, music and life

  1. John, you have been a member of various projects. Being part of Cat Rapes Dog, Machinista and some others, can you tell us how one person can be so diverse, as the projects are diverse in their musical expression.

I want to do what…

Hocico – “Ofensor” limited 3-CD-set album review

Hocico – “Ofensor” limited 3-CD-set album review

  I have indeed meditated for a day if I should write about this album since naturally I knew everyone would. But it is far too good not to say a word about it. It is not so hard to see the intention or the true nature of Hocico while listening to it. The opening track Déjà-Vu Siniestro sounds like a combat call, filled with expectation, giving us a subtle hint, but nothing about what’s…
