If your a regular reader of this blog you are probably familiar with Sweden's rich musical history. In case your not, here's a quick refresher. Beginning in the early 1990's and continuing through to present day, Sweden has been a breeding ground for some of the best melodic death metal bands around. The country has become a heavy metal mecca, a place that most metal heads speak of with reverence. A place that most beer drinking long hairs long to one day see with their own eyes.
Perhaps some of you have wondered recently, what the next big thing to come from Sweden will be. Well ponder no more. I have infiltrated the impenetrable Swedish shield and found the shocking truth. I must warn you, it isn't pretty.
No, this isn't as joke. Pictured above is Günther, aka Mats Söderlund. He is next big thing to come out of Sweden. Söderlund started out as a club owner and model but recently began playing music under the above stage name. It appears that Swedes can't get enough of this mullet clad singer. Its hard not to wonder if this is some new elaborate joke on the public (see B4-4 previously written about here).
Günther released his first album, Pleasureman, in 2004 (released in the US 2006).
Here is a sample of what Günther is all about.
Needless to say, this is a long ways from At The Gates or Dissection. It only a matter of time before this new wave of Swedish mania reaches our red, white, and blue shores. In fact, the invasion already begun. See the below video, filmed on our own soil.
Günther is hard at work on his second release titled (I kid you not), Dirty Man Swedish Sex Beast. Its only a matter of time before this becomes inescapable.
I risked my mental health and virgin eyes for this report. Use this information as you see fit. Dont let my sweat and tears go to waste.
