Take A Wild Ride With KRIEGSHÖG On Their New LP ‘Love And Revenge’

Screenshot

Two minutes into KRIEGSHÖG’s new LP Love & Revenge, the fuzzed out guitars and scuzzy overblown bass ring out over dramatic drums that drop in and out before shifting into a mid-tempo stomp, shifting the song from speedball D-beat into lurching rock ‘n’ roll. It’s an unexpected and badass moment that gives a good taste of what the band has in store for the rest of the album. Put out by La Vida Es Un Mus as their 300th(!) release, it’s easy to hear why this record is special right out of the gate. It’s the band’s first LP in fourteen years and sounds so focused and cohesive I’d say it was worth the wait. Across eight tracks in 22 minutes, KRIEGSHÖG pull you into their world of desert-rock infused raw punk; a fusion that lands them somewhere between Japanese hardcore and stoner-metal and oftentimes results in a pummeling Western gallop. The riffs are catchy as hell and the entire album is surprisingly accessible and full of grooves; I could see this being a perfect gateway hardcore album for your hesitant metalhead buddy. Highlights for me include the gnarly bass lines on “P.S.M.” and “眠らない身体” and the rock ’n’ roll riffs on “Love And Revenge” and “Grey Agony”, but honestly I could recommend every song on the album. I’ve been saying this a lot so far this year, but this may be the contender for album of the year.
