Wilson / Reigning Days / Swedish Death Candy

Album Review

Detroit metallers get into the party spirit

Metalheads might not expect to hear a 15-minute jam section at the Barfly, but that’s what they get with SWEDISH DEATH CANDY [8].

Their influences include Pink Floyd, The Beatles and Dream Theater, and they’re tight enough that they could have existed for 10 years, let alone two. REIGNING DAYS [4] vocalist Dan Steer’s onstage patter is more awkward schoolkid than frontman as he reassures the room that “If you don’t like us, we can still be friends.” Their bluesy, Muse-meets-Royal Blood sound has its moments, but the song that’s almost note-for-note Black Night isn’t one of them.
