Jocke Berg (vocals), Vic Zino (guitar), Martin Sandvik (bass) and Adde Andreasson (drums) make up this foursome from Gothenburg, Sweden. Their sound has been coined as thrash metal and sleaze rock. Drummer Andreasson uses the term “street metal” to describe them. They formed in 1997 and still perform today. They have 11 albums under their belt, one just being released in 2018 called “You Can’t Kill Rock n’ Roll”. These bad boys have an impressive 18 singles and have won several Grammys in Sweden. They have one compilation album with all of their hits.
Their influence came from the 80’s, L.A. rock scene which included bands such as L.A. Guns and Faster Pussycat. They also got into Oasis as heard on their song “Someone Special.” Drummer Addes said they wanted to be a lot like AC/DC because they were the “ultimate party band” because they ran on pure energy. Years later, they were invited to open for AC/DC in Turin, Italy to which they were very honored. They have toured all over Europe, Japan and the US.
