S.K.U.R.K - "666 Personlighteter"
(Record Heaven 2006, TBG666001)
Uploaded to Aural Innovations June 2006
S.K.U.R.K. is the newest band on the Record Heaven and they play straight up heavy metal with the unique angle that they sing in the southern Swedish dialect of Skånska. Many Swedish people from Stockholm and further up in the country have a hard time understanding this dialect. Anyway, S.K.U.R.K. come across as a strange Iron Maiden inspired band but they mix a few strange things in as well, as the odd language. A few of the tracks have a female backing singer who appears now and then. Blodsband is an acoustic ballad with male and female vocals. The main problem I have with the CD is the lack of memorable songs.
