The Swedish Retro-Rock succession is here!
It’s been 4 years I reviewed the latest release Molior Superum put out. Since then I kinda forgot about that amazing Retro-Rock Swedish band… But then earlier this year, the guys teased us with a new full-length album which would be coming sooner than later. “HELL YEAH!“, I said to myself! I remember I totally fell in love with their energetic rock’n’roll, so was 4 years worth the wait ? Well, if you are reading these words, you know it does, as I only review stuff I love
How is the sound ?
Damn these guys know how to create catchy songs!
Hopefully, they still have that unique old-school 70’s bluesy vibe mixed with a modern Heavy Rock approach I enjoyed so much. All 9 songs contain some of the most addictive riffs I ever heard, pair that with delicious melodic guitar licks, some sweet organs, powerful distinctive vocals, with some songs even sung in their mother-tongue, and you have a winner!
Overall, the Temperature Level is quite high, even if they know when to slow down and go on the calmer side, but it never lasts that long and Molior Superum goes back to playing very tight rhythms, I freakin’ love that!
And of course, I think I have to talk about their now very famous brothers, Graveyard. Indeed Molior Superum is coming from the exact same town as Graveyard, Göteborg.
The first thing I wanted to say is this city itself might certainly be blessed, I mean there’s no other way. Look, it gave birth to Graveyard, Monolord, Yuri Gagarin, Horisont, Molior Superum, and I’m not even naming all the black & death metal band coming from there! This is quite insane!
Now going back to Graveyard and Molior Superum. If like me, you enjoy way more what Graveyard used to do in their first albums, well look no further. “As Time Slowly Passes By…” will be your new drug, I can assure you. There is indeed similarities, but don’t get me wrong, they also bring something new to the table which also what we want
Why is this album worth listening ?
- Because they’re from Göteborg, Sweden. This alone should make you click play
- No really, these guys have a killer groove, bluesy, melodic, heavy…
- To me, they’re really the successors of Graveyard early sound.
In what situation you should listen to this album ?
I’d personally love to see them live riffin’ hard! But yeah, just blast it when you need a good dose of rawk’n’roll energy!
Something particular to note ?
