Rival Sons

RIVAL SONS - Ungezähmt und unpolitisch

The wild animal on the cover of their latest album "Feral Roots" is shot. Will the Rival Sons - until now hungry saviours of the retro wave - now jump through the music world with friendly little deer eyes? No, luckily not, even if Scott Holiday doesn't want the wildness of reality to spread in the world of his band. No politics!

Pavlov's Dog

PAVLOV’S DOG - Traumhaftes Hundeleben

Pavlov's Dog are back. "Prodigal Dreamer" is the band's first album with new studio material in eight years. It's a strong sign of life. Although David Surkamp is only one of the founding members, it sounds like a lost work from the seventies. But unlike "The Pekin Tapes" from 2014, which surprisingly presented songs from the time before the band's famous debut album, the 13 tracks of "Prodigal Dreamer" are all fresh. And a song with a woman's name in the title also exists again.

Das zweite Album von OAK verbindet ausgereiften Artrock mit Claude Debussy

The Norwegian art rock scene has already produced a number of internationally renowned bands. Gazpacho and Airbag have been attracting attention for some time now; in 2017 Soup presented a brilliant work with their album "Remedies".

Regarding their position in Norwegian art rock, the group states in a joint e-mail: "We are already noticing that the attention for this kind of music is growing and the number of bands is increasing.


Hate news does not stop SOEN from assuming social responsibility - for "Lotus" also in women's clothing.

31. January 2019


Hassnachrichten bringen SOEN nicht davon ab, soziale Verantwortung zu übernehmen – für „Lotus“ auch im Damenkleid.

He has no resolutions for the new year, Martín López explains to us on New Year's Eve afternoon. He mainly wanted to maintain his love for music, only in this way could Soen continue to exist. To work full-time as a musician again is out of the question for the former Opeth drummer. But Soen are still far away from a pure fun project. In several interviews López emphasizes how important the value of a band is to him.

eclipsed: With "Lykaia Revisited" you wanted to close a chapter of the band. How has your perspective on Lotus changed?
