Rideau: Rideau

Album Review

Noisy Swedes make sure you’re not sitting comfortably

There’s something inimitable about the best of Swedish music, from pop right through to death metal, and the same is true of hardcore, with this trio’s eponymous debut very much in the mould of Refused.

But while they have their countrymen’s flair for invention, Rideau’s darker mood and the rhythmic ballast of bands like The Bronx makes for a more cohesive listen. The creeping basslines and demented saxophone of Ecstasy before the rollicking express of The Bull And The Dove sets the tone and pace for what follows.
