A Kaleidobolt live show is both a sublime and startling affair: it will leave leave you with a grin on your face, gasping for air and possibly partially deaf. Their music is a dizzying maelstrom of progressive song structures, pulverising riffs and loose psychedelic soundscapes, delivered with joy and ferociousness. Kaleidobolt is a power trio that was formed in 2014 in Helsinki, Finland, they have released two albums: Kaleidobolt and The Zenith Cracks (Pink Tank Records 2015, 2016) and toured all over Europe.
One of the Swedish Gothenburg music scene’s most exciting and brightest shining names at the moment is the prog quintet Orkan. Meaning “Hurricane” in Swedish, it’s both a perfect metaphor for
the band’s sound as well as their recent success. Orkan tell tales of an unjust system, of the ruthlessness of modern society and of the resistance and revenge of Mother Nature, making the amps
scream as well as the on-looking audience. The band touches on difficult themes in with the times, and there is room for both anger, sorrow and joy in their songs. The music of Orkan is dance-friendly and easy to sing along to, but it is also earnest and highly serious. The band’s sound is almost reminiscent of that of classic punk rock, characterized by drummer Moa-Linn Rosenlöf’s and bassist Theresia Dufva’s energizing rhythm section, where an extra punch is thrown into the mix in the form of Kim Bertilsson on the saxophone. Josephine Green’s straight-forward and high-powered riffs blend perfectly together with Fredrik Pettersson’s more melodic Stratocaster solos. The concept of Orkan is undoubtedly inspired by the 1970’s Swedish progressive musical movement, but the band should not at all be described as project based on pure nostalgia. While one foot is resting in the progressive rock heritage, the other is steadily planted in our contemporary times with moving and insightful lyrics that
encourage the listener to reflect and show solidarity with fellow humans.
2017 was an especially exciting year for Orkan. After a successful cross-country tour as the opening act of the prog rock veteran band Nynningen Orkan has played for packed venues wherever they go
and no one is left unaffected by their progress. “Orkan is leading the new prog rock movement”, acknowledges the band Nynningen, and no one seems to object to this claim. In September 2017 Orkan released their self-titled first full-length LP on the Gothenburg based label Alleycat Records. Since before the band have released a 7” single on the same label. The band is currently working on new material and receives new bookings.

The Swedes were praised for their EP released in 2015 and have done several festivals and shows both in Sweden and Germany. Hällas will take you on a musical journey with their adventurous rock, which makes you think of bands like Rush, Wishbone ash and Uriah Heep. Be sure not to miss this!
VUG is a rock n’ roll band from Berlin following the tradition of 70’s hard rock and proto-metal. The four members met while playing in different bands on the metal and stoner rock spectrum and came together, like so many before them, under the constellation of beer and amplifiers to make some noise.
Hailing from Berlin, this heavy-playing fourpiece was brought together by their love for beer and amplifier-induced trance states. Like a slow trudging bear with a fuzzy pelt, electric claws and a melodic singing voice, the female-fronted outfit is looking to bring their very own mix of Doom and Heavy Psychedelic Rock to the stoner caves of this world. From the deep growl of the amplifiers to the peaks of a saxophone wrapped in reverb, URSULAR are looking to combine the heavy with the melodic, the meditative with the ecstatic, the familiar with the unexpected. Let there be fuzz. Let there be loud. Let there be URSULAR.

Shooting exclusively on film, dánae uses photography as a political weapon and the internet as a platform for deterritorialising the segmentation of the public and private space, portraying her friends, lovers and herself in experimental practices in which new spheres of action and subjectivation are created through an exploration of intimacy and desire as a dynamic power that stimulates processes of transformation and reappropiation of the flows of gender.
