Ultima Thule - 1458

Ultima Thule Records - LP -


1152_1458.jpgAfter three years come Ultima Thile with brand new full album called 1458. Title is not linked to some year but to the numbers on the cover which are held by politicians (leader of social democrats, speaker of green party, leader of left party and maybe leader of Centre party) who sold Sveden (you will notice it in the song). On last singles you may get used to old/new singer Bruno who recorded this album (plus some song on 25 years anniversary if Fäderneslandet album). On this piece you may check ten songs in Swedish which are equaly distributed on side A and B. The last song En sista sång (One Last Song) was written by Mathias from Mjölner. Since first tunes you will be sure that this is Ultima Thule – title one 613 with nice refrain, Den Höges Visdom (Higher Visdom) with typical Viking rock sound, slower Skaka åldrig hand (Shake Older Hand), half acoustic Håtuna Svek (about some conflict between king and his brothers back in 14th century) which reminds me Bäring Nord, Trollpolska with intro like from middle age, long and accusing 1458, Marnätter (with official video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O2DHNi5nF6Q), Gator i Brand, Nya Eran (New Age) and En Sista Sång (which is slower ballad/lullaby with keyboards). Album is out on CD and LP in black, blue and yellow cover plus bookle in 7´´ format with lyrics and photos. Yes it is still Ultima Thule which you either hate or love.

Arogants - 1

DIY - CD -


1151_arogants.jpgDebut album from Arogants which hail from east part of Bohemia contains two record sessions – Epizode 1 and 2. Difference is that the 1st one was recorded with two guitars. Both contain 6 and 6 songs. Boys have experiences with playing on deifferent bands like Driák, Everyday Hate, Svarog, Todleto Rebels or Out of Control so it varies from punk, Oi! to HC and you may hear and feel in their sound. There are ultra melodic songs like Skinhead Rock´n´Roll ort he last one against war Nezažiješ, Nepochopíš – No Experience, No Understanding (which has acoustic start and you may hear keyboars in it), but also harder stuff like the first one Arogants, Závidíš (You Envy) or Loser Skinhed. Singer has really nice vocal and he knows how to work with it so you may hear many levels from melodic to rough, guitar has nice riffs and you may hear that guitarist likes harder music (but there are also solos like in Timebomb), bass in the background with the steel sound (like in Pijavice – Bloodsucker). I really like song Pokrytec (Hypocrite) with nice singalong like from Normals?! Lyrics are both serious (like Čikatilo or Nezažiješ, nepochopíš) and classic topics like Working Class, way of life (Žádný vyzrálý blues – No Mature Blues), fun on gigs (Arogants), violence (Vem ho tyčí – Hit Him with Bat), etc… Booklet was done by tlustej Tony so whole stuff is in comix/cartoon style, inside are lyrics in Czech (English version can be found on their bandzone), short thankslist and band photo from the pub. Nice debut.
