Swedish heavy rockers Transport League have their new album ready to go. The longplayer is entitled ‘Kaiserschnitt’ and if it took some doing, we don’t know. A sure thing though is the fact that recording an album these days isn’t an easy undertaking and it needs an extra effort to make such a longplayer happen.
‘Kaiserschnitt’ ninth record from the Swedish quartet and features heavy sounding rock and metal, made for fans of bands like Clutch and C.O.C.. The new songs are representing the heavier roots of the band with tunes like the energetic ‘Nailsober’ being a highlight. The short whistling part is a nice little twist in the beginning that quickly leads to a heavy pounding song with a hypnotic look.
The title track ‘Kaiserschnitt’ builds on groove and power, muscle music is what breaks ground here. Talking about groove means also to mention ‘March, Kiss, Die’. The song has a solid drive, a great chorus and also features a guest appearance of Sal Abruscato. A song that breaks the pattern is called ‘Autumn Moon’. Not only that tempo is reduced, in a way the song is the musical equivalent to the creepy creature on the album cover. Everything feels a bit torn apart and still fits together and belongs together. It’s a creepy doom song that shows the bandwidth the band’s offer.
‘Unburden Woes’ ends the album in a good way. It’s a next mighty tune on the album with a thumping bass and pounding drums, both being the base for a good melody and harsh vocals. ‘Kaiserschnitt’ is a very entertaining album that shows its coolness-factor right away. First spin, first win.
