Well… this band is surely a pleasant
surprise…catchy… melodic… crunchy…
Okay let’s take it from the start and I can do this very short. This

guitars are heavy and crunchy at the same time. I was almost hooked

absolutely recommend this debut album
from this Swedish band called Evergrace
without reservations. This album
comes with a crystal clear production by executive producer Emil
Westerdahl and the cover artwork is done by the very talented Mattias
No more words needed!
