Mustasch – Mustasch

Nuclear Blast

Hard, punchy, wailing and chuggy; this album pleases my ears. I am unaware of the bands previous 4 albums so I just had no idea of what to expect from these Swedish rockers.

The doomy symphonic Tritonus (Prelude) briefly kicks off the self titled album leading the way for Heresy Blasphemy, 4 minutes of dirty heavy rock with a filthy voicebox worthy of replacing Slash in Guitar Hero. A quick favourite from the album is Desolate, a disjointed track repetitive through out, yet hypnotic from the repetition. This track also displays a good working partnership with dual guitaring and a snazzy gypsy kind of ending. I’m Frustrated is a completely different direction altogether, an easy listening slow paced ballad complete with strings and acoustic guitars. Tritonus returns for the finale like a tale told in epic rock form. We are then treated to an extra track instrumental version of the single, Mine.

For lovers of rock, this album will be very cosy in your collection!
