LP - WIBERG, PER - HEAD WITHOUT EYES

Black vinyl, limited to 300 copies.

 

The term heavy can be applied to many different music genres and in many different contexts. Swedish musician Per Wiberg, has made a living out of playing most things heavy the last 30+ years. A multi-instrumentalist who has played keyboards, bass and guitars with a number of bands and artists like Opeth, Spiritual Beggars, Candlemass as well as Clutch/Bakerton Group, Switchblade and Kamchatka to name but a mere few. "Head Without Eyes" is the result of an urge to constantly move forward artistically. Combine this, with a lifetime of music addiction and record collecting and you'll get an amalgam of catchy hooks and memorable melodies layered on top of trippy sounds exploring the more experimental sides of rock music. Impossible to categorize but let's paint the scene. Imagine, if you will, having afternoon tea with Killing Joke and Van Der Graaf Generator, followed by a smokeout in the company of Hawkwind and Young Gods, while later being invited for a night cap with Talk Talk and Swans. Are you with us? There's a dense doomy, sometimes dissonant vibe to the songs and together with the melodic parts it creates an interesting sense of dynamics. This is underlined by the surreal landscapes portrayed by the sometimes sinister lyrics. Per is handling all instruments and vocals with the exception of drums which are played by Karl Daniel Lidén who also mixed 3 songs (Crippled Black Phoenix, Katatonia, Switchblade) and Lars Sköld (Tiamat, Avatarium). Billie Lindahl (Promise And The Monster) lends her ethereal voice to Anywhere The Blood Flows & Pile Of Nothing, as well. With "Head Without Eyes", Per has created a new platform to write and perform music that moves between discordant to harmonic; sparse to bombastic. Also, when listening to these songs, one can't help but notice how mature it sounds for being a debut album, but then again, if you mean what you play, you can never go wrong.
