“In This Place”
(Mighty Music)

Battle Helm Rating

I was quite surprised to see that this is a Swedish band. Judging by the name I would have thought that they at least would be Americans. But that just goes to show that there are too many bands in Sweden alone to keep track of. This is the follow up to their debut from 2011. What struck me the first time I heard this is that they seem to have the same pop sensibility as Ghost have. No other comparisons made. At best I’d described this a heavier version of alt rock/post rock with touches of hardrock/progressive. The more I listen to this the more I like it. There is a melancholic touch to it that I like. This album feels like it is a grower. Anders Ekdahl
