Zakk called he wants his riffs back...these are more in his vein than Doom. Was looking forward to some Vikingesque music but not much of that either. BLS is mostly HR/HM with a touch of Southern Rock. But might be hard calling a northern swedish band with a slight Viking image SR...so going back to Zakk instead.

The only surprisingly good thing is the Soundgarden feel in some of the verses, almost bordering to Alice in Chains too and full grunge, which I rather listened to in the 90s instead of all the metal clone bands that came back then & one of the world's 5 best singers Chris Cornell was in Soundgarden, so that's the only plus for this debut. The heavier side of the 90s, not Nirvana, even if I liked Kobain too, our generation's Lennon...but the 90s bands more on the heavier metal side.

Well at least they beat Nickelback in heaviness...and maybe can tour with Zakk Sabbath if they haven't already.
