HIGHRIDER – Agony Of Limbo (Lyric video)


Agony Of Limbo is Highrider´s first singel of their debut EP Armageddon Rock that will be released on the 18th of March. The Gothenburg based Swedes deliver a cinematic heavy metal attack in four punches. 21 minutes of larger than life organ driven nuclear rock music that makes Armageddon Rock into a sonic blast out. A dystopian message contemplating the downfall of human civilisation delivered with powerful energetic catchy melodies. The music is heavily based on the organ, providing lot´s of space for heavy riffing, solo´s and Andreas Fagerbergs vocals to create a debut Ep of modern US influenced heavy metal. The EP is released by The Sign Records.


Armageddon Rock was recorded in Studio Kust by Leo Möller and mixed by Henke Magnusson that previous work includes Horisont latest album Odyssey. The recording was mastered by Linus Andersson who previously have mastered albums for Goat, Yuri Gagarin, Terrible Feelings, Night Viper and Ill Wicker. Cover art is created by Magnus ”Mojo”Olsson that has worked on the Dark North illustrated fantasy, horror and science fiction book series.


Highrider started out in early 2013. Andreas (bass, formerly of hardcore/punks Fredag den 13:e) and Carl-Axel (drums, Din Skevf) wanted to start up a band that played aggressive hardcore metal but with the classic 70´s setup of Rainbow and Deep Purple, featuring the organ and synthesizer. Thematically, inspiration came from sources outside of music. Mainly the sci fi movies of the eighties and of John Carpenter in particularly. Another eighties phenomenon that was crucial inspiration was the imminent death threat to all of civilisation known as the Cold War.

Carl-Axel met Eric (guitar, bass player in stoners Dödaren) at a show in Gothenburg featuring The Sword and then band started rehearsing. Fairly quickly a sound took shape, aiming somewhere in between aforementioned The Sword and doom metallers High On Fire. The band were still on the hunt for someone to take on the keyboard though. As fate would have it a young hero soon emerged in the form of Carl-Axel´s childhood friend Christopher (Din Skevf). Originally a bass player, Christopher was talked into playing keys and did so with success.

Still looking for a singer, the band then got into the studio to record songs. All though a few had been auditioned, none had made the cut. Andreas then gave it a shot and the line-up was completed. In 2015 they signed a deal with The Sign Records, awaiting future releases on the label. Watch the video here.
