• thobbe englund The Draining of Vergelmer (digipak CD, £12.75)

    After the successful 2017 release of "Sold My Soul" and a European tour seeing Thobbe going back to the roots of heavy metal, the time has come to move forward into the landscape of metal and shred. The new album "The Draining of Vergelmer" is something that really pushes ahead with more of everything. Faster guitars, faster drums, louder screams, and simply more of everything. The longplayer contains vocal guest appearances by Joakim Brodén (Sabaton), Patrik J.Selleby (Bloodbound) and Hulkoff (Raubtier).  As Thobbe puts it himself: "On this album I was really hungry to make a very solid, melodic yet aggressive statement, so what you hear on 'The Draining of Vergelmer' is everything at full force. I don’t think I’ve ever played this clean and fast. Me and my guitar are in perfect synchronization, and the most powerful album I’ve ever written is there to back us up."  With nordic mythology as the foundation for the album, songs like "Viking", "Odins Hall" and "The Land Where You Belong" tells of ancestry battles and bravery. Thobbe explains: "The song 'Viking' is actually sung in Swedish, simply to make it more powerful and true".  The album contains vocal guest appearances by Joakim Brodén (Sabaton), Patrik J.Selleby (Bloodbound) and Hulkoff (Raubtier). So brace yourself once again for something out of the ordinary. TRACKLIST 1. Thou Ancient, Thou Free 2. Illuminati 3. Heart Of Metal 4. Fingerspitzengefühl 5. Viking 6. Odins Hall 7.
