For the uninitiated, the Spiritual Beggars are a three-piece psychedelic groove metal trio from Sweden. Their guitarist, Michael Amottis best known for his role in doom metal units Carcass and Candlemass. With deep riffing and more precision than speed, he is as heavy as any two speed-demon metal guitarists put together.
IV and Sabbath Bloody Sabbathbut Firobet - Various - Volksmusik Und Jodellieder Aus Dem Appenzellerland expand their horizons with each record. The band's sound on this third recording differs from its previous efforts in two ways.
First, there is the addition of Per Wiberg on organ and Mellotron, Fender Rhodes piano, and clavinet, and Stefan Tsebring on percussion. Don't worry -- all the teeth are still there, even sharper. Second, there is the obvious influence of two late American bands on the Spiritual Beggars ' sound: Kyuss the hard rock unit from Arizona and the semi-legendary Trouble.
In Superbossanova - Spiritual Beggars - Mantra III , Spice, the Beggars ' bassist and singer, sounds a hell of a lot like John Garcia from Superbossanova - Spiritual Beggars - Mantra III . Mantra III has its roots in the almighty kingdom of riff.
If all these guys came from gloom metal bands, it's not possible to tell from the songs here. This is rock -- hard, heavy rock -- more than even metal.
It's possible to imagine Blue Cheer playing this music if that band had been born in the late '90s rather than the '60s. The CD kicks off Superbossanova - Spiritual Beggars - Mantra III a breezy, jazzy, Santana -like intro, which thankfully only lasts a fraction of a minute before the real medicine kicks in. From "Homage to the Betrayed" through "Broken Morning," the tempo is nonstop, full-on, in-your-face heavy rock. It's cool enough that they sing in English and often mess up the syntax.
From "Lack of Prozac" and "Bad Karma" through to the bonus tracks -- which are largely throwaways -- the band digs deeper into a groove for its menace. The tempos are throbbingly quick, but they hold within them a kind of funk that only white guys from Sweden would Silent Night - Bing Crosby - The Voice Of Christmas The Complete Decca Christmas Songbook as soulful.
