In principle, "Boogie From Hell" is already an old hat, because the fifth album of the Swedish Stoner specialist Transport League has been in circulation since mid-2013 as an in-house production. Unfortunately, no label was ready to release the comeback of guitarist/singer Tony Jelencovich and his wild horde at that time, so "Boogie From Hell" is only now available to a wider audience. And rightly so, as is already clear from the first bars of the snotty opener "Swing Satanic Swing". The Stoner frame is too tight anyway: Metal, hardcore, pig rock and doom form a testosterone-impregnated symbiosis, which just goes off very well. "Blood Inn" is the best Gdansk song since time immemorial and with "Bitter Sand" you enter a terrain on which Volbeat have cleared up a lot in recent years. So there is an enormous fan potential, but that's what the people of Gothenburg thought in the middle of the nineties when they first started with "Stallion Showcase" (1995) and especially "Superevil" (1997).
