Hard Rock Is The New Swedish Folk Music
As I’m currently lacking shows to attend, I thought I’d list some of the many great bands from up here in the north! :)
- Treat (1983-present)
- Easy Action (1983-1986)
Great glam rock band, and I'd love to see a reunion show at some point.
Song: Rock On Rockers
- Shotgun Messiah (1985-1993)
We saw a latter incarnation of the band, now named Shotgun, playing their last ever show at Väsby Rock Festival this year. A bit sad, but also exciting to see them. :)
- Europe (1981-1992, 2004-present)
The band I’ve seen live the most times, great live act. And you know, they’ve actually done more than “that bloody fanfare”.
Song: Girl From Lebanon
- Crashdïet (2000-present)
I’ve listened to them since 2006 and have yet to see them live. For some reason it’s just not happened!
Song: Breakin The Chainz
- H.e.a.t (2007-present)
Saw them at Stockholm Rocks earlier this year, and they were so energetic live. Great live!I like their new album Tearing Down The Walls that was released earlier this year, it’s really good.
Song: Point Of No Return
- Dynazty (2007-present)
Song: Sultans Of Sin
I and my partner in crime, Lynn, managed seeing them 3 times in a year. Twice as a support act, and once on a shared bill. They’re a great live act, very energetic, and the song Moonshine kind of became our warm-up for the shows.
