Take one of Sweden’s most respected jazz guitarists, a billboard songwriter from the Swedish songwriting wonder, an established rock singer and a ska drummer, and you get, perhaps unexpectedly, the hardest rock you’ll hear this year. It’s like somebody had too much coffee. It’s tractor pulling fuzz guitars and stiff boned drums. It’s neo-thrash-, punk-, hardcore-, sludge-, speed-metal. It’s the perfect blend of Beastie Boys and Bathory.
And whoever reads this…. don’t start ranting about a supergroup but yes, the members have experience, not necessary in the hard rock business. Here we find why Adrian Recordings and Bitch Hawk is the perfect match. Patrik Berger, the bass player, is a well known songwriter to big stars like Lana Del Rey and Charli XCX. Among numerous hits he wrote “I Love It” to Icona Pop and “Dancing on My Own” together with Robyn. Andreas Hourdakis, the guitarist, is a well known Swedish jazz guitarist that plays international shows in Magnus Öström’s (E.S.T) band and just released a well received solo album as Andreas Hourdakis Trio. The singer Fred Burman also sings in the band Satan Takes A Holiday. On drums we find Henrik Holmlund.
