After some well-needed holiday vacation we are now back at the office, accelerating towards this summer’s festival. We are currently getting a lot of questions about when more bands will be announced. And even if we don’t have any exact date, we can promise you that it will happen during the month of January.

We wish you all a happy new year!
One of the currently most prominent traditional rock bands have a pretty untraditional structure.

Since 2013 the Dead Daisies have released three albums filled with hard, groove-based rock'n'roll. They have also...

It might be good for you to know that our current Sweden-Rock app will be shut down around the year-end. But don’t worry, a new and improved one will be launched in mid February.
By combining the sounds of their beloved British progressive rock with traditional American music and a violin to round it off, Kansas became one of the most original bands of the 70s. They debuted in 1974 and made it big with albums like "Leftoverture" (1976) and "Point of know return" (1977) and the hit singles "Carry on wayward son" and "Dust in the wind". In the new millenium, singer Steve...

The legendary Y&T never played in Sweden in the 80s. Still, albums like "Earthshaker" (1981) and "Black tiger" (1982) achieved cult status with Swedish headbangers, and "In rock we trust" (1984) was also a commercial success. So when Y&T finally debuted in Sweden, at SRF 2003, the reception was absolutely overwhelming. To the band as well, by their own account. This marked the beginning of a...

They were the rawest, most brutal and diabolical band of the New Wave of British Heavy Metal, so they invented their own genre: black metal. Venom released their first single, "In league with Satan", in 1981, followed by the full-lengths "Welcome to hell" (1981) and "Black metal" (1982). These outings rank among the most important in metal history, greatly influential to both the thrash metal...

Clutch is a fascinating feature on the US rock scene. A smalltown band from Maryland who debuted in 1993, as a part of the alternative rock scene at the time - but not really. Neither then, nor later has Clutch really been part of any "scene". They're really "just" a groove-driven, and reasonably hard rock band that doesn't sound like anybody else. They have also only got more popular över...
