The Swedish rock'n'roll scene was rising strongly and the whole sound was like a totally new thing. But it wasn't, it had only been kept in darkness for years, waiting to get unleashed. Now with The Hellacopters in the frontline the beginning of the "Swedish sound" was born (with all respect to Nomads). New rock'n'roll combos who wanted to make some serious noise was popping up everywhere. Also our neighbors Norway got some serious shit coming in the way of Gluecifer and the mighty Turbonegro.
