Volster - Perfect Storm

Recommended Posts

Been listening to this today on Spotify and it's a MONSTER!!! of an album.

First full length album from Swedish Melodic Hard Rock band Volster, “Perfect Storm” is released by ROAR! Rock Of Angels Records (Monument, Outloud, Gods Of Silence, Mean Streak, Panorama etc.). “Perfect Storm” produced by VOLSTER, co-produced/mixed by Max Norman (Ozzy Osbourne, Lynch Mob, Armored Saint, Lizzy Borden, Megadeth, Y&T)

Peter Tenning - Vocals
Ulf Andersson - Guitar (ex-Masquerade)
Henrik Lundberg - Bass (ex-House Of Heavy, ex-Masquerade)
Mattias Carlsson - Drums

VOLSTER is a Swedish hard rock band started by guitarist Ulf Andersson and bass player Henrik Lundberg who were both members of the band Masquerade in the late 80s and early 90s. While Ulf left Masquerade for other projects, Henrik continued making a couple of albums with Masquerade before they broke up. In 2009 Henrik released an album with the band House of Heavy. Ulf and Henrik met up again in 1996 to record a four song demo. This demo was called VOLSTER and in 2013 (17 years later) they decided to pick up where they left off and plans were made to start a band performing these songs and also write new ones. They kept the name VOLSTER. Henrik Lundberg says: "Brought up with music from the 70th and 80th the roots are deep. So it's no surprise our music is built from these glorious decades even if we also involve more modern flavours. The main ingredient is the melody, what else makes a great song other than great vocals and interesting riffs of course. With members having been active in the music business for decades now is the time to make all our music dreams come true, playing the music we love. VOLSTER is melodic hard rock as it's supposed to be."

I agree with the positive comments about this one.  The guitarist tears it up.   I enjoyed the whole album but my initial favorites are  "Breathless", "Ends With Me", "King of the Hill", and "Easier Said Than Done".

Oh wow, am I really that harsh these days? What's happened? I thought this album was rubbish. On the plus side, I love the opener - 'King of the Hill' is a cracker. Great riff and love those pre-chorus melodies, but wow... I just thought the rest of the album was a dud-fest. :(

Nope, i agree. I want to like it but its not doing much for me. Singer isnt that great... and not enough hooks. Otherwise rocks pretty well.

    • rocks still rolling sounds like it will be shite but there's still room for 10 other gems
    • He's not on Ebay and I would've paid by credit card. The postage shows automatically as you ad items to the shopping cart on his website. When it hits number 13, it shows $50 in shipment to Europe. It was then I emailed him asking without cases. He has been in the business of selling CDs, DVDs and all sort of things since 1997 and here's the hilarous bit:  on his website it states "Our pricing and customer service is unmatched in the industry" Come again? Fuck me sideways with a banana...that's some amazing customer service. I'm impressed. If I was selling for profit, I'd go out of my way to please a customer. Maybe he's filthy rich or I'm just a small insignificant buyer, he clearly hasn't got time for me. Clearly my money's not good enough although I have bought from him before 3 or 4 times (few items at a time). I'd understand if he was worried about the CDs getting damaged or the like but that reply to my enquire was...unprofessional. And totally lazy.   In comparison: I made an offer for a package of 100 CDs on Ebay early 2018 (seller: a reissuing record label whose owner is known for his antics on this board ), he accepted it and shipped the 100 CDs without cases for 50 or 60 bucks (can't exactly remember). There you go. Which one would you prefer?
    • New St.Lucia album "Hyperion" coming September 21st       
    • I'm sure he has a few cds around unpacked, he could just weigh one without the case and multiple the required amount and voila! He don't have to unpackage 13. But no can do.
    • Track listing for 'Second Coming': 1. My Fear & My Faith
      2. Because Of Us
      3. It Burns
      4. Walk Me Through The Fire
      5. New Life Begins
      6. The Final War
      7. Breathtaking
      8. Rock's Still Rolling
      9. Die Together
      10. The Best Thing I Never Had
      11. Outrun You
    • The seller can weigh the CD's, deduct the weight of jewel cases/trays and add the weight of the packing material. Should be easy, unless I'm overseeing something...
