ALBUM REVIEW: Marvel – Double Decade

ALBUM REVIEW: Marvel - Double Decade

I actually have a tender spot for Märvel (a.ok.a. The Barons of Excessive Vitality Rock and Roll) – the masked males who hail from Sweden… however is it actually that lengthy? Rattling it truly is – shaped in 2002 the clock has lastly clicked over on the band that handle to sound like Kiss, Low cost Trick, The Wildhearts, Sabbath and UFO concurrently while on the similar time trying like a cross between 60’s classic Batman villains and the Hamburgler!

Don’t let any of that idiot you although these guys have at all times been all class and all cool, and for a three-piece they squeeze out extra Rock and Roll than most…. um…. 4 items do…  So whether or not you prefer to Rock to the uber catchy opener of ‘The Hills Have Eyes’ or Roll to the early Kiss-tastic riffing of ‘Keep in mind’ you’ll discover one thing to like right here. Hell, in the event you’ve not heard of the band earlier than then you definitely’ll ensure that you might have struck aural gold! For those who’re accustomed to the songs then the breath of latest life offered by the brand new mastering by Magnus Lindberg (The Hellacopters, Imperial State Electrical, Cult Of Luna, The Datsuns, Tribulation, Lucifer) is price testing!

Truthfully what’s to not love right here? To have a good time the anniversary Märvel the band made up of John Steen (The King), Ulrik Bostedt (Speedo) and Tony Samuelsson (The Vicar) have put collectively ‘Double Decade’ which options 23 songs from earlier Märvel releases with a few newbies and some rarities (‘Catch 22’ and ‘Flip the Web page’ teh new ones are each blended by Robert Pehrsson.) added for good measure! With 9 very superb albums to select from the stability right here is excellent and you’ll’t fault the picks however to be trustworthy that again catalogue continues to be price further plundering!

All the things right here although is nice I like the instrumental model of Hellacopters ‘Satan Stole The Beat From The Lord’, and in the event you’ve by no means dabbled you’ll love that opening salvo and the sheer infectious early Storage Kiss stomp of tracks like ‘I Wanna Know You (Simply A Little Bit Higher)’ or the Sabbath meets Budgie ‘Danish Rush’, the Pop Punk Rock of ‘Goddess on the Free’, or the closing salvo of ‘Motherfucker’ and ‘The Boots are Made for Flying’. Truthfully I might decide any monitor and extoll its appreciable virtues!

You want Märvel in your life!
