The respectable Lords Of Metal has chosen to treat us with a nice review of the latest Transubstans release; ETT ROP PÅ HJÄLP’s “Hur Svårt Kan Det Vara?
“They just threw me off my socks with the light easy listening stoner hard rock that is transported from the seventies straight in the heart of 2012. Ett Rop PÅ Hjälp, what literally means a cry for help, comes from the Gothenburg area and this ‘Hur Svårt Kan Det Vara?’ is their long awaited debut. The seven songs are very entertaining with cheerful melody lines, great variation in riffs and forceful bluesy rhythms. Also a powerful original singer (Sweden seems to be filled with them) adds to the bill. These songs do not excel but surely are no less than the original works of forty years back in time. Call this light digestible metal and easiness to listen to a great addition to those works and of course it fits the current seventies revival. Funny the biography states that the lyrics are superb… Unfortunately the majority of the world does not speak Swedish, but hey, I’ll accept it. Is your head still in the clouds of smoke of the seventies, go and listen to this little gem. ”
– Review by Erik Heylen
