What is more fitting on the national day of Sweden to review a Swedish band? Probably many things as a national day is a rather pointless thing, the only good thing about it is that it is a holiday so no work goes on today, only my work of writing this. Jesus Chrüsler Supercar comes up with the album Lücifer, so what’s with the ü-thing? They seem to like that letter. It is their third album and it hasn’t been given the most impressive cover art that I have seen, it is quite ugly actually and nothing I want to have in my vinyl collection. But the music is the most important thing so what about the eleven tracks that makes up this album?

Death ‘n’ roll is the genre description, the same as more famous Swedish band Entombed, and why not? They sound quite similar. It is a brand of rock ‘n’ roll based in classic death metal with doom and stoner influences. Good energy with a decent sense of melody and rawness to it, good production can also be said about this album that is kept short enough to fit on a single vinyl record. It is good that they keep it that short, as a longer album would have been way too much. More dynamics and variation would have been beneficial to the album as well, and the voice of the singer isn’t great either but he makes up for it with strong energy and passion.

Good album, that is my impression after playing through it several times. The coarseness, the drive and energy are all good things that make it worth listening to. Good thing also that they elected to make music in a style that isn’t overflowing with bands already, too bad they didn’t make something radical with it though. And with more variation to the album they could have made an album that made a stronger impact on those listening, but you should like the deathier and more aggressive forms of music to appreciate this album fully – for the general music fans it may be less interesting.

If you like bands like Entombed and that sort of thing I am sure that you will find this album quite appealing, so if you do you should have a closer look at this album. I think the album will appeal to most music fans, few will dislike it but equally few will think it is a memorable album. The conclusion will have to be that it is a good album but perhaps not one that will make much of a dent in the scrolls of metal history.
