In The Colonnades - Scrap Metal Value

In The Colonnades -
Scrap Metal Value (1991)

This is maybe the most classic of all Swedish rock albums released in the nineties. The sound is heavy, almost heavy metal - but without any of the metal clichés. And it has got the coolest organ in the history of rock. If you can get hold of this album (released on the classic Swedish Chicken Brain Records (CBR) or the German SPV/Rebel Records), don't hestite - Buy it!

Metal Church - The Dark

Metal Church - The Dark
(1986) Elektra

I haven't heared all of Metal Church's discography. With three stand-out tracks this is clearly the best of the their three first albums, wich happens to be the albums I own. My personal favourite "Ton Of Bricks" opens the album and that is probably one of the best metal songs ever! The album continues with another really strong song "Start The Fire". The semi-hit "Watch The Children Pray" is a  good, epic ballad-like, song.

Code 64 - Trialogue

Code 64 - Trialogue 2CD
(2010) Progress

A bit disappointing this one. I've been expecting one of the better electronic releases of 2010. I certainly don't agree with the Blackvector review giving them 9/10, I'd rather give them a modest 5/10! The best song is "Advanced Robotics". If only they'd written more songs like that... Even the Mind.In.A.Box remix on the limited (200 copies) second CD is disappointing.

Killing Joke - Night Time

Killing Joke - Night Time
(1985) Virgin

This is a maybe one of the most classic of all 80's albums - any genre!
8 fantastic songs and at least 3 succesfull singles "Eighties", "Love Like Blood" and "Kings And Queens". They've obtained an incredible sound, with a very dominating bass guitar, on this recording. I only wish more albums sounded like this.
