Slussenanalys: Aquila Helvetos Asfaltos LP
[Full Contact Records]

Ektro Records (known in Sweden as the home of the best rock band in the world) and Svart records aim to penetrate the markets of Finland’s neighboring country in an aggressive manner with a product that is too surprising to submit to the tools of commercial analysis.

The vivid images of decadence portrayed in Slussenanalys’ lyrics are rich in biblical symbolism and existential pondering, set to a musical score that equals the uneven hobbling of a hobo with a police bullet lodged in his leg. Vocalist-lyricist Esko Lönnberg paints a bleak, yet poetic picture of a Stockholm with no light and no future, while the band conjures a rocking wall of noise that leans towards the Chicago of the 80’s. It is a picture of a city where an immigrant child with a broken home is predestined to spend his days either on the street or behind bars, his nights filled with the sounds of breaking storefronts and the barking of police dogs, closer and closer.

The future seems dark for all involved in the stories of Aquila Helvetos Asfaltos, but despite the low expectations for a better future, the combination of the stories and the music manages to find nobility among human wreckage and hope in the shadows of the gray cubes of an urban maze of alcoholics and addicts. Slussenanalys aims to reverse the seemingly unending downward spiral, to rise above the smog and to let us bask in the light of pure inspiration.

Esko Lönnberg = vocals
