The electrically charged quartet Åskväder from Gothenburg creates rumbling storms through their rock music.
The sound is described as a well-balanced refresh of the Scandinavian rock sound from the 90s seasoned with fast-paced riffs drenched in bluesy licks and catchy choruses. Åskväder also offers a thundering drum and bass groove topped with stylish vocals.
The name of the band gives a clear picture of the music Askväder fronts, no fuss just honest rock n roll. Åskväder has clear influences from the legends of our time such as The Hellacopters and Turbonegro but still manages to stick to their own style and thus creates a new type of rock for a new decade. Åskväder released their debut EP Quick Fixes in 2018 and in 2020 their self-titled debut full-length was released via The Sign Records. The second full-length, Fenix, will be released in 2022. The new album takes Åskväder's sound to a whole new level compared to the debut when a goal for the album was to capture the mood and soundscape of the coveted live performances. Look out for Åskväder releasing their second album via The Sign Records in March 2022.
