A ROCK QUARTET FROM HELL: Swindler is a rock and metal playground for an experienced “iron clover” on the Danish music scene aiming to help revive the political and societal heavy music. The group consists of frontman and rhythm guitarist Esse and drummer Mike Park – both active in the Danish thrash kings HATESPHERE. The bass is handled by Ask Fogh known from his time in the enfant terrible of Danish rock, ROCK HARD POWER SPRAY. On lead guitar, we find Prozac Smith, a live session for SURFACT. Together, the quartet has over 50 years experience, released up to 20 records and played hundreds of shows on several continents.
The style is eclectic yet unique and draws mainly on inspirations from alternative metal and stoner as well as heavy grunge. Therefore, the self-invented term ‘chopperrock’, which describes the combo of distorted guitars, crunchy bass, punchy drums and crispy vocals. The song writing is top notch with an clear emphasis on cool riffs and catchy choruses. The rhythm section swings rock-solid, and Smith’s superior solos are the jewels of the crown.
After the formation in 2014 Swindler have released two EPs, supported BLACK LABEL SOCIETY and LIFE OF AGONY, played festivals and club shows. Despite these notable accomplishments, 2019 will mark the real beginning of Swindler with the release of the debut album ‘The Game is Rigged’, which without a doubt will put Swindler on the rock n’ roll world map.
In other words, this rock quartet from hell is a force to be reckoned with in many years to come.
