TRANSPORT LEAGUE “TWIST AND SHOUT AT THE DEVIL”

It doubtlessly takes a lot of mental strength to stay on your chosen path, despite all the imponderables that the music industry entails. Transport League from Sweden are a prime example of determination and perseverance. As the critics’ faves, they have been praised to the skies, as a down-to-earth band they’ve always remained in tune with the times and close to their fans, while their rhythmic, powerful and stylistically diverse heavy metal has left an impressive mark on the international hard’n’heavy scene. Transport League are set to launch another artistic landmark on 28 July 2017, when the band are scheduled to release their new album TWIST AND SHOUT AT THE DEVIL on Rodeostar/Soulfood before going on to present their latest material live on stage with their familiar merciless energy. That’s when everybody will understand why the media like to refer to the group’s style by the album title of its 2014 release: BOOGIE FROM HELL!

Said boogie is also present on TWIST AND SHOUT AT THE DEVIL, albeit not exclusively so. Transport League appear to have opened Pandora’s metal box with intent and are now busy blazing their trail through all those strong ideas that they have unleashed. “Of course there’s boogie again, but also doom and hardcore, fast songs and hard riffs,” vocalist/guitarist Tony Jelencovich describes the new album. “Our sound may have changed a few times, but not the band’s raw power and our penchant for strong grooves.” The three longstanding band members Tony Jelencovich, Peter Hunyadi (guitar) and Mattias Starander (drums) recorded the album together with Transport League’s new bassistDennis Österdal who has joined the fold to replace Lars Häglund, the latter having had to leave the group due to health problems.

Jelencovich is referring to rigorous numbers such as ´Cannibal Holobeast`, set to be supported by a video clip, which has him state: “This is my sabotage.” The merciless ´Winter War` which tells the story of Finnish soldier Simo Häyhä, deployed in WWII as a winter sniper and referred to as “White Death” by the Red Army, features a similar attitude. ´Swine To Shine` is no less uncompromising, Transport League by all appearances having been inspired by acts such as Black Sabbath and certainly doing the term ‘doom metal’ credit.

Talking of inspiration: “TWIST AND SHOUT AT THE DEVIL is a return to our own roots and mixes them with influences that had already surfaced on our two previous releases BOOGIE FROM HELL and NAPALM BATS & SUICIDE DOGS,” Jelencovich summarises the basic direction of the new material. “We’ve consciously kept the album’s sound natural so that it has an analogue flair. Especially the drums sound very organic.” In addition, the album features another typical characteristic of the musicians involved. Jelencovich: “Transport League have always been a band with a sense of humour, we love plays on words and tongue-in-cheek hommages to our idols.” He is referring not only to the ambiguous album title which hints at both the Beatles (´Twist And Shout`) and Mötley Crüe (´Shout At The Devil`), but also to the album opener ´Destroy Rock City` with its Kiss references (´Detroit Rock City`) in terms of its name and its riff. The same can be said of ´Bad Voltage`, which brings to mind Led Zeppelin and AC/DC, Marshall amps and Gibson guitars – all of them synonymous with timeless rock´n`roll.

TWIST AND SHOUT AT THE DEVIL was produced at Oral Majority Recordings and at the Grand Recordings studios under the direction of Roberto Laghi (In Flames, Sonic Syndicate, Mustasch), who also mixed the album. The impressive cover artwork was designed by Axel Widén and presents creatures (werewolf, pig, sloth) from the album’s lyrics – a real eye-catcher which pleasantly sets itself apart from the usual metal standards.

About twenty years after the arrival of their debut STALLION SHOWCASE, Transport League are ready to present TWIST AND SHOUT AT THE DEVIL – not only their seventh album to date but further evidence of their inexhaustible creative power. The scheduled tour in autumn 2017 is certain to reinforce this positive impression.

TIDER

HARDCORE SUPERSTAR

Många band går den enkla vägen och håller sig till sin genre – Hardcore Superstar är inte ett av dessa. Fyrmannabandet från Göteborg som bildades 1997 hade modet att anamma två stilar som tidigare hatade varandra, nämligen thrash metal  och sleaze-rock. Den förstnämnda hård, aggressiv och rå medan den senare catchig, melodisk och dekadent.

Idag, över 20 år och elva studioalbum senare, finns det inga som helst tecken på att dra ner tempot. Under 2018 har det turnerats både på egen hand och på den gemensamma turnén Tour De Saster med Mustasch. Nyss släpptes det elfte albumet ’You Cant Kill My Rock’n’Roll’ där titelspåret fått en tillhörande video inspelad under sommarens konsert på ett utsålt Sweden Rock. Nu är bandet redo att lägga i ännu en växel inför 2019!

STONEWALL NOICE ORCHESTRA

S.N.O. for short, formed 2004 in the industrial city of Borlänge, Sweden.

They play classic heavy rock influenced by anything from the haunting nerve of the delta blues to heavy metal. Whatever feels right at the moment is what ends up on their recordings, as long as it moves you in one way or another.

2005 . The band signs with Daredevil Records for their full length debut “Vol. 1” .

This album was recorded at Pophouse, Borlänge. Snicken and Mr. Pillow borrowed a studio from a friend and did what they could (or couldn’t do) with it, trying their best to engineer and produce an album. With “Vol.1” released ,the band’s been touring europe and built a reputation for their intense and uncompromising live performances.

2006. The microphone was temporarily passed over to John Hermansen (Mother Misery) who joined the recordings of the second album produced by Robert Ekholm. John also teamed up for some touring with the orchestra while Singe, the original singer took a break from the band.

In 2008 , Singe rejoins the orchestra and they sign a deal with The Unit Music Company and the second album called “Constants In An Ever Changing Universe” is released October 29. “Constants…” got great reviews and this opened up for more touring. S.N.O. was featured in Classic Rock Magazine and appeared on the magazines compilation “New music of 2009”. Late 2009 the band head in to their own newly built Studio 454 to record and produce their third album. This little baby is called “Sweet Mississippi Deal” and it’s released on Transubstans Records october 2010 and it was followed by more touring. S.N.O. has toured with and supported bands like Warrior Soul, Blindside, Entombed, Brant Bjork, Mustasch and many more over the years.

The fourth album “Salvation” is released in February 2013 (Transubstans Records). By now the band is travelling europe in their own Volvo nightliner called Mothership.

2015. Singe decides to leave the band which leaves the rest of the band with the tough task to find the right replacer. Eventually, Borlänge-born-and-bred Tony Josefsson jumps aboard the orchestra and the madness continues…

2016 . The band signs a worldwide deal with SPV/Steamhammer and May 20 they release the fifth full length album called “The Machine, The Devil & The Dope” which is received very well.

Late 2017, after touring the new album the band is hit by the cancer diagnosis of guitar player Micke Eriksson. It all happens very fast and the darkness seems bottomless.

April 25 2018 Micke Eriksson sadly passes away. The loss is huge and hits the orchestra very hard.

Once again the orchestra is left to their own devices. After considering which way to go from here S.N.O. decides to complete all booked shows with the help from Jonas Kjellgren (Raubtier, Roadhouse Diet). Micke would have wanted it that way and nothing heals better than doing what you love.

January 2019 Mats Gesar joins in on guitar.
