Traversing through an evocative, feel-good blend of nostalgic 70’s hard rock, proto-metal, folk and psychedelic influences – Isle Of Wisdom emerges as the anticipated third studio album by breakout Swedish “Adventure Rock” stars HÄLLAS.
Formed in 2011 and named after the main character featured in the stories of their lyrics – a knight in a parallel medieval universe destined to take part in a religious war caused by a tyrannical queen – HÄLLAS are the originators of the “”Adventure Rock”” genre, devoting themselves to the aforementioned sonic fusion and eccentric imagery inspired by rock greats of yore with a fantastical twist.
This collection of fresh tracks allows the listener to emerge in a brand new realm soaked in mystery and retro-rock atmosphere – key features of HÄLLAS’ fantasy and sci-fi driven auditory aesthetic. Produced in collaboration with Linn Fijal and Vilma Colling at Riksmixningsverket studio, which has hosted the diverse likes of Arch Enemy, ABBA and Celine Dion, HÄLLAS experienced the rare chance to once again use ABBA’s unique synthesizers for the production of Isle Of Wisdom.
Hot Breath releases their debut studio album “Rubbery Lips”. With a foundation built on dirty riffing, memorable hooks, and a no-nonsense attitude, the new album contains 10 tracks of energetic and catchy garage rock ‘n’ roll.
With their minds firmly set on releasing nothing but killers, Hot Breath has pushed themselves into perfecting the sound that they presented on their 2019 self-titled EP. The result is a straight-shooting album, guaranteed to twist your hips. “Rubbery Lips” is recorded and mixed by Mattias Nyberg (The Soundtrack Of Our Lives, The Datsuns).
