IMPERIAL STATE ELECTRIC CONFIRMED FOR SWEDEN ROCK 2012
Nicke Andersson is a remarkable man. As the leader of Entombed he made Stockholm the global epicentre of death metal. As the leader of the Hellacopters, he spearheaded the renaissance of hard rock’n’roll.
With Imperial State Electric, he moves forward with the latter genre, albeit in a different form. Here the groove of rock’n’roll mates with strong pop melodies with delectably theatrical overtones, in the vein of Kiss, Alice Cooper and Cheap Trick. Since the release of the eponymous debut in 2010, Imperial State Electric has grown into more than a one-man project. The sophomore effort ”Pop war” is a bona fide band product and marks a great leap forward for Imperial State Electric. Energetic, fun, groove-oriented and made to be played live – this is what real rock’n’roll sounds like in 2012.
