Über Bombshell Rocks
Easily dismissed as Sweden's answer to Rancid, Bombshell Rocks prove early on that they hold their own against those better known Clash-inspired Punks. Where Rancid (and the Clash) slowed down, turned down the volume and dipped into Reggae, these Swedes are all Go! -- not slow. They carry the trademark Scandinavian full rock sound, creating a multi-layered wall of buzzing, bright guitars, a strolling bass, crisp tambourines, and a full chorus of backing vocals. They swallow you whole and sweep you up in Punk's rousing anthemic charge. With mohawks upright and leather jackets on, let's hope Bombshell Rocks follow through on their threat to stick around "until the last of the Mohicans has been buried."
