What is it with the melodic/glam/hair band revival (for lack of a better term) going on in Sweden? I’ve been digging the stuff I’ve heard coming from there, but the sophomore effort from all female quintet THUNDERMOTHER is a total hoot! Recorded over sessions in Stockholm and Klippan, the production is tight, no-frills and raw around the edges, complemented by the old-school analog equipment used to make this.
The guitars reach an interesting climax that holds the songs together once again in the tune “Fading Story’ and the last tune the Epic title track prowls its way forward with sense and conviction incorporating all the metal elements that make great bands stand up and get noticed.
