The Swedes of High Rider create an uppercut of 21 minutes of hard rock/metal that is dominated by organs and keys from the seventies and which provide the drive of the songs with heavy riffs and pounding drums. The screaming, raw vocals by Andreas Fagerbergs give it a grim and dystopian feel.

Four songs are included. The Moment (Plutonium) starts with a great intro, while the rest of the song is rather ordinary, even if the dark organ sounds great. S = Txl begins with a fat riff and evokes a hard rock 'n roll feel. A nice track with a pretty chorus and some nice guitar licks. Agony Of Limbo starts in the same way and the organs are more at the fore. Semen, Mud and Blood sounds like thrash metal, but the song is not really convincing.

With this debut EP, High Rider is trying to win a place in the hard rock/metal genre. They partly succeed,, mainly through the use of the organs, vocals and rhythms. This EP is not bad. I wonder how they will develop in the future.

De Zweden van Highrider delen gedurende 21 minuten een uppercut uit met hardrock/metal die zwaar aangedreven wordt door orgels en keys uit de jaren zeventig en die zorgen voor de drive in de songs, in combinatie met heavy riffs en stampende drums. De krijsende, rauwe zang van Andreas Fagerbergs maakt dat we eerder een luguber en dystopisch geheel horen.

Vier songs waarvan The Moment (Plutonium) een heerlijke intro heeft. De rest van de song is eerder gewoon. Lichtpuntje is het donkere orgel. S=Txl start met een vette riff en refereert aan harde rock 'n roll. Een leuke track met een aardig refrein en wat leuke gitaarlicks. Agony of Limbo start op dezelfde manier en de orgels komen nog wat meer naar voren. In samenspel met de gitaren, levert dat een heel fijne track op. Semen, Mud and Blood neigt wat naar trashmetal, maar de song kan mij niet echt overtuigen.

Met deze debuut-ep probeert Highrider een originele plaats te veroveren in het hardrock/metalgenre. Dat lukt deels, o.a. door het gebruik van de orgels en de naar hardcore neigende zang en ritmes. Als ep zeker niet onaardig. Vooral S=Txl en Agony of Limbo zijn de moeite waard. Benieuwd hoe ze zich in de toekomst ontwikkelen.
