Jakob Ljungberg on drums (see also: ex-Guerilla, ex-Sars, ex-Undergång, Second Sun (Swe), ex-Enforcer, ex-Tribulation), Tobias Lindqvist on vocals and bass (see also: Enforcer, ex-Corrupt, ex-Ghaltra, ex-Terminal, ex-Corrupted, CC Company, ex-Dead Lord) and last but not least Joseph Tholl on Guitars (see also: Tribulation, VOJD, Merciless (live), ex-Corrupt, ex-Black Trip, ex-Corrupted, CC Company, Joseph Tholl and the Escapades, ex-Enforcer, ex-Hazard). These are Tyrann. We were writing about them exactly 2 years ago, and we were using the exact same words. Tyrann is actually the new version of Terminal, with a brand new moniker. Amazing Trve Scandinavian Heavy Metal, 100% Svensk – 100% pure metal in the veins of Gotham City and the obscure First Wave of Swedish Metal and 80’s bands coming from the European communist bloc. And they must become your new favorite band that you will worship. The Swedes that sing not only in English but also in their native language (and so will bring in mind so many beloved bands coming from their country such as Onyx, Helvetets Port, Jonah Quizz etc) return two years after their eponymous 7″-single from 2019, with ‘Djävulens Musik’. Their debut studio album features 8 pure heavy metal anthems that go the distance and leaves the competition down and out. Everything sounds so 80’s and charming that I don’t think that any fan of obscure, or from the catacombs or underground or whatever you name it, Heavy Fuckin’ Metal wont appreciate. A nice, austere artwork cover that fits like a glove to their aesthetic featuring a sketch of a demon with his proud black wings wearing a pair of boxing gloves is so simple that looks even cooler (especially than me, trying to describe it)… Compositions may have simple structure yet the dynamic melodies, the melancholic guitars and the intensity give an excellent final result. One last thing, now that I’m writing the text are available only 40 items of the vinyl edition of the album, so you better hurry up as the 500 limited copies are not too many after all…
