They might be common ideas or even dreams carried from childhood years. They could even be imaginary thoughts with no real connection to reality ( especially for a traveller) however ; when a country like Sweden or the area of Scandinavia is mentioned visions of icy, barren lands, multi-coloured sunrises and difficult living conditions come to mind.
Koloss is able to confirm this idea and make it feel and sound real.
This Swedish band presents you with songs that dip into darkness and light; the guitar that walks you through harsh lands of solitude; the voice that screams with anger and pain refusing to be imprisoned by isolation and silence. Traces of a one too many long winters, freezing winds and too many days of darkness can be felt in the their music a sort of struggle against banality and indifference.
Happy listening to Koloss, preferibly in front of a fire or in a warm place.
