Review: Hellsingland Underground – Evil Will Prevail
|“Evil Will Prevail”
By Alle Royale
Anytime I’m walking down the streets of my hometown, people stop me to ask if I know whatever happened to that nice, little rock band from
First single ‘The Lost River Band’ exemplifies all of the above characteristics: what starts as an unpretentious pop rock number full of sunny melodies, tasty guitar riffs and seventies vibes, towards the end it suddenly changes into a tour de force of duelling guitars that totally elevate the song to another level of inspiration and personality. If second single ‘In The Evening’ has a pure pop, indie nature, it’s in songs like ‘Singing While The World Dies’, ‘They All Grew Old While I Grew Young’ and the title track, that Granberg’s songwriting skills really shine, and lines like “ There’s a light at the end of the tunnel, from a freight train coming our way” or “ Because idiots rule and stupidity reigns, no matter what anyone’s been trying to say, evil will prevail”, are fine examples of the dark humour that permeates these grooves.
In conclusion, ‘Evil Will Prevail’ is a work full of turns and moods that will constantly change your perspective, making for a surprisingly good and entertaining listening experience.
