IN SOLITUDE, STEVE RODGERS AND GODA GRANNAR TO SWEDEN ROCK FESTIVAL 2012
British-influences 80s’ metal lives and thrives in Sweden. One of the hottest, if not the hottest, bands of this type is In Solitude. In their case, the term ”British-influenced” comes with a sidenote, since Danes Mercyful Fate have been at least as crucial in shaping the band’s sound as Iron Maiden and Judas Priest. In other words, the albums ”In Solitude” (2008) and ”The world. The flesh. The devil” (2011) provide dark, ominous and diabolical sounds, of a calibre that have got the entire underground scene jumping with joy. If you’re a fan of heavy metal in the truest sense of the word, don’t miss In Solitude. Especially if you also happen to regard the return of King Diamond as this year’s most essential SRF-event.
If you’re wondering: yes, Steve Rodgers is the son of the legendary Paul Rodgers, who will also appear at this year’s SRF with Bad Company. Rodgers Jr is apparently a chip off the old block, since he clearly has more to be proud of than just his lineage. Steve has written songs since his childhood days and released two albums with the band Boa. Now he has started a solo career with a self-financed EP, pending its official release. The acoustic sound, ripe with philosophy and a certain degree of sentimentality, has been compared to Jeff Buckley and – naturally – Paul Rodgers. Perfect for a relaxing break from the rougher and tougher artists, especially with a cold drink or two.
Legendaryat Sweden Rock – Goda Grannar (The Good Neighbours) will once again give the audience at the festival a show to remember, of course dressed in weird hats!
