You just know when some bands are great. This may be because of the band name, but also because of a song title or a cover-art. Skraeckoedlan have all those things. Just how they spell Skraeckoedlan (Skräcködlan) Horror Lizard would be the correct name in english, It's just so great. It feels like you are going back in time, to the 70's with a modern touch to the sound.

This tape collects their first two demos "Flykten Från Tellus" and "Världarnas Fall" from 2008-2010 and delivers stoner rock which fans of Abramis Brama, Sheavy and Nebula would find interesting. They have a mouldy sound over the song which I love. What I mean with mouldy sound? Check it out and you will know what I mean.

This is the fourth release from the guys behind the swedish lable Ljudkassett and as with every tape they put out, something is musically different which I think is great. This is the first of tapes that has more than just a few songs, here you get eight tracks and after you have listened to this you will feel that your stomach is being full in a good way.

Of the tracks on this release I like "Kaktus Galaktus" the most which reminds me of Abramis Brama and Sheavy, as I wrote earlier. You can't help it, but if you like stoner rock you'll falling in love to the distorted bass along with those guitars being played with overdrive from hell.

Another thing I like is that this is the first tape from Ljudkassett that isn't released in just 100 copies, this one exists in 200 copies so more people can discover it.
