Switchblade - Switchblade
In its nineteenth year of existence, Swedish band Switchblade is ready to unleash its brand new album . Core duo Tim Bertilsson (drums) and Johan Folkesson (guitars) once again teamed up with sound wizard Karl Daniel Lidén — whose services already have been used by The Ocean, Katatonia, Greenleaf and many more — to create yet another 40 minute slab of their unique proggy doom. Switchblade’s last effort, , included guest appearances by Kongh frontman David Johansson, keyboardist Per Wiberg who has played with bands like Opeth and Candlemass, and Katatonia vocalist Jonas Renkse. The outcome was an album that not only received rave reviews, but also earned nominations for a Swedish Grammy and a Manifestgalan prize, annually presented by SOM (Svenska oberoende musikproducenter), the world’s oldest indie label association. During the past 4 years the band has played a decent number of special gigs - including performances at the legendary Roadburn Festival in Holland, as well as several support concerts for worldwide favorites Ghost.
