I don’t like hard, heavy death metal. But boy if I did I’d have it made. There is so much Swedish death metal I would never have to worry about having music for a post. Add to that the Swedish hardcore and most embarrassingly the Swedish mascara emo and I’d be fine for posts through 2012 (or as we like to say “the apocolypse”).
With that said I do like music with crashing hooks and a slightly heavier sound like Urge Overkill meets The Posies type of thing. So it was easy for me to agree to post the new single by Leaders Off. The song has those elements above plus a pretty compelling chorus. Check out “Sacred Mansion” below.
