RAISED FIST

raised

From The North

Epitaph Records

 

Entering their 22nd year as one of the most renown live acts, Swedish hardcore punk rockers Raised Fist have returned with their sixth studio album built to slot perfectly into their high energy live set.

From The North is a perfect showcase of the band’s maturity and delivery, with a fluid recording sound, solid builds and huge choruses. Lead track Flow kicks off with a killer drum beat and never looks back pounding into a thunderous chorus that is sure to induce moshes across the globe.  Alexander Hagman’s vocals epitomise the journey Raise Fist have been through, throwing everything they can into their live songs and producing only the best music they can for their fans, shouting ‘from the club to the squat, you people chose the spot’. Hagman’s vocal tone is a highlight throughout the album, aggressively leading the band through crunching riffs and bouncy melodies.

We Will Live Forever is another stand-out track that takes a slower approach which leads to an emotive chorus and tells a gripping story, whilst the vocal harmonies in Ready To Defy are memorable and catchy.
