MP3: Necronaut - Soulside serpents

Kinda odd to hear Swedish death metal with straight-up melodic vocals (courtesy of Janne "J.B." Christofferson from Grand Magus), but hey -- when you're scene royalty like Fred Estby, you get to do whatever you want on your solo album. Doesn't hurt that both Roberts from Dundertåget/Thunder Express (that would be Pehrsson and Dahlqvist) contribute leads either. As one would expect, Necronaut's self-titled debut is a mixed bag based on the various gueststar's talents, but the overall result is pretty darn good as far as vanity projects go. It's a fun and enjoyable listen and that's enough. The small surprises like "Soulside serpents" elevate it above Death Breath-level mediocrity.

Thunder Express - Republic disgraceThunder Express
Republic disgrace
Razzia Records


Rock n' Roll is a tradition. Many follow it. Few make it to the end. Thunder Express, despite their desire to conquer the great frontier, apparently by laying tracks as quickly and easily as possible, have derailed somewhere between the mid-seventies and early eighties. Some bands are able to thrive on their own sound, stick to it consistently, and modernize it to achieve an acceptable standard. However, on "Republic disgrace" (appropriately), the concept of a solid sound seems to have been left back at the station. This record meanders through territory conquered and well scouted by the New York Dolls, Rolling Stones, and then into some weird mish-mash of rock ballads and Led Zeppelin rip-offs. While their 70's grooves can be fun and catchy at times, as tourists on the rock music trail, Thunder Express has gone for the cheap souvenirs, cheesy postcards, and crowded museums. It is an excursion that would well have benefited from a venture off the beaten path.
- Paul Bredenberg

Thunder Express has recorded a cover of "I can feel the fire" by Ron Wood for use an upcoming split with The Sewergrooves to be released via Basque Label Bloodyhotzak. Listen at myspace:

MP3: Thunder Express - Vegas

It's more back-to-basics rock'n'roll today courtesy of Thunder Express, the band led by Hellacopters guitarist Robert "Strings" Dahlqvist. It's not a big departure from the 'Copters big-guitar sound. Perhaps a little less arena-rock? More New York Dolls than Journey. There's still plenty of triumphant guitar riffs, but they're more at home in a seedy bar than in some cavernous coliseum. Which is not to say that I'm dissing the Hellacopters either! Many folks get down on their increasingly polished sound, but I'm totally okay with it.
Anyhow, Thunder Express' new record "Republic disgrace" is chock-full of solid tracks and "Vegas" is one of the standouts in my mind with it's simple, effective chorus. The shakers give it a little extra boogie-woogie and there's some sweet slide-guitar leads as well. Like I said, totally solid.
