HYBRID FREAK DIVISIONLion Music LMC073 (2003)
Lion Music goes for another fusion release with this album by a young
Swedish band. Not as good as OHM and the production is fairly muddy at
times, especially the guitar sound. Not sure if this is a live release, in
which case that would explain the sound quality. Can’t fault the
musicianship, with drummer Bjorn Nyberg worthy of a mention for his neat
time changes and percussion work. ‘Riot’ and ‘Paddington’ are the best of
bunch but it did all meld into one after a few plays to be honest.
If you like fusion rock than try this band but if you’re a casual or
curious fan best avoid.
