Sideburn – Evil or Divine

Sideburn – Evil or Divine
Metalville – 2015
Rock, Hard, Metal, Stoner
Rated: ****

Will their new album Evil Or Divine be as good as their previous one IV – Monument? Cause that fourth album of the Swedish quartet Sideburn really stood its monolithic ground. On the new album the guys move away from the more seventies approach we heard on that record towards more metallic influences, classic hardrock and almost sludge-like pounces. Not that the seventies are completely over and done with, just less of a definite go-to on these seven new tracks. For a band that has been around since 1997 they sure as hell have evolved and painted many a different picture on their records. And this time we are reminded more of Rainbow than Sabbath, and we head bang more than give we give the universal nod. With slow basslines and impressive guitar work Sideburn kicks every song into full overdrive. Especially when drummer Frederik Haake lets loose. Cause it’s the passion in those drums and the fire in the guitar solos that absolutely stand out. Traditional hardrock, with metal and stoner touches. What more could you wish for?
