CORRODED at Baltiska Hallen, Malmö, Sweden

Effectively enough my model photo shoot in Malmö turned out to be on the same date as Corroded was playing live there, at Baltiska Hallen.  So I paid them a visit and took some live shots. Headlining this night was Avenge Sevenfold which have notably proclaimed a world wide mainstream success. With extra appreciation due to the fact that the extremely creative and technical ex Dream Theater super drummer, Mike Portnoy was hammering away. But… STILL I would say that it was Corroded’s great show and magnificent songs that gave the biggest kick this evening!

MOONSHINE

Here I am reading the new Sweden Rock Magazine. A little irritated that the pages have such small text, which reminds me of the fact that my eyes are starting to need glasses. I still managed to read a lot of interesting articles. Just finished with Opeth’s Michael Åkerfeldt’s chronicle about album rarities. I like the way he writes. It’s wicked and quirky!

Anyway, this November edition with Ozzy’s grinning face on the cover of the magazine was a little extra special to me… Exclusively featuring Sweden’s sleaze rockers Hardcore Superstar’s new single, with songs “Moonshine” and “Guestlist”… And it happens to be my big mouth on the cover of the single : )

Hardcore Superstar’s album “Split your lip” was just released on November 26th. I am just listening to it, and through half the album I have to say it is sounding pretty awesome. Recollecting and smiling about the fact that these past weeks my I-pod has been kept warm with tunes from only swedish high quality bands such as: Opeth, Corroded, Deathstars, Hardcore Superstar, Kamchatka etc.

The Blue Hour

Posted in Make Up - Savage Beauty, Model 40 with tags , , , on November 23, 2010 by Tallee Savage

“The Blue Hour” is a period of twilight each morning and evening where there is neither full daylight nor complete darkness.
I only recently became aware of this mystical, enchanting time when Photographer Patrik mentioned it to me. But it sure is intriguing.
Another session with Patrik Blom is under process as well, but until then here is “The blue hour”.

CORRODED

Swedish rock band Corroded have released what is unquestionably one of the best albums I’ve heard in a long time. In my opinion, there are no weak moments here.

Every song on “Exit to transfer” hits you from a different angle with good variety and catchy riffs. Melodic hard rock or true heavy Metal in your face… but still with a sexy rock’n’roll essence that makes  you want to listen more and more…

It is hard to choose a favorite song here, but one that touches my hardcore nerve is “Forget about me”. Some metal blast and growl from singer Jens here, but in general this is a hard rock oriented album with very exquisite music that left me curious enough to go see what the lads where able to pull off live last friday at the venue “Klubben” in Stockholm. I undoubtedly believe this group is heading for greater dimensions because they were simply top-notch live also.
