Gothenburg-based hard rockers MAMON successfully takes us back to the early 70’s! They are mixing the groove from early LED ZEPPELIN along with a vigorous Hammond organ that makes you remember the first time you heard DEEP PURPLE’s mighty “In Rock”. Their first single “Creatures” is a mash-up of beautifully crafted melodies and arrangements, a skilled rhythm section that brings MOUNTAIN’s Felix Pappalardi and N.D. Smart to mind. Mix this with the dashing voice of Caroline Wennergrund and you got MAMON, a band that interpreters the best era of music in their own way.”

Swedish acid rockers THREE SEASONS have been absolutely famed by fans and media for their genuine yet original 60s/70s sound, and there’s no wonder why – with the muscular riffs, grooving rhythms and really tasty solos, the band has found the perfect approach to the hard-hitting psychedelic, jammy blues rock from the past. And if their earlier work got you going (or perhaps “brought forth rivers of tears of joy in the eyes of music consumers and loudspeakers”, as one reviewer thought), the band’s upcoming full-length album GROW is guaranteed to get you going even more. On GROW we get 8 songs of the highest quality, all of which show a special side of the band’s music. To name a few, there is “Which Way” with a mystical opening that turns into a catchy, folky groove; “Drowning”, a full-on riffer with high energy and great latino-style percussion; “No Shame”, where the album gets emotional with some really heartfelt vocals; and in “Tablas of Bahar” there is the wordless magic of a traveling, many-sided instrumental. Further, an important novelty on this record is that lead guitarist and vocalist Sartez Faraj now also handles the hammond organ with great success – check out the 10-minute epic “Familiar Song” for sweet psychedelic melodies, great riffings and a most penetrating organ solo. To summarise: this album is certainly one of the musical higlights of 2014. The band has set their bar very high – previous releases LIFE’S ROAD, ESCAPE and UNDERSTAND THE WORLD have not only received loads of top score-reviews, high spots on the official album charts and “Best album of the year” awards, but also been sold-out and re-pressed – but GROW is sure to beat all expectations.

Three Seasons has now made the a second track from the coming album “Understand The World” available for streaming!
After a very successful debut album and a largely appreciated 7-incher, THREE SEASONS are now working on a new full-length LP! The album is a twisting and turning mixture going to many different places while at the same time never leaving the sound of Three Seasons – the grooving, hard-hitting drumming and dynamic bass married with characteristic lead vocals and a most wicked guitar sound. It’s a strong foundation of an original band, who clearly have developed and found their sound! Here you’ll find folky grooves, Hendrixian guitar leads, rock-solid riffing, and more still… These Swedes deliver yet another amazing release you’ll have to get your hands on ASAP! An essential record for anyone into LED ZEPPELIN, JIMI HENDRIX, DEEP PURPLE,
THE DOORS or bands similar.
