HÄLLAS - A sonic maze of 70’s inspired retro rock indulges your mind
Two years after the release of their highly esteemed album, Excerpts From A Future Past, Swedish Adventure Rock quintet HÄLLAS sprinkle some magic dust with Conundrum, the final installment of their mysterious trilogy.
Dark retro rock with a dash of mystery successfully invites its listeners for a cosmic ride through a parallel world. Somewhere between the open spaces of hidden soundscapes and straight-up 70’s rock riffs, the sonic maze of Conundrum draws you out of the everyday life. HÄLLAS evokes a bizarre world that reveals a magnificent reincarnation of progressive art rock, psychedelic and folk in its most authentic way.
The opening track “Ascension” beguiles with rising atmospheric synth spheres and leads its listener directly to the clutches of “Beyond Night And Day”. Strong 70’s rock vibes merging with psychedelic sounds simultaneously reflects the soundscape of the track and Conundrum itself. Heavy rock riffs enhanced with synthesizer melodies and carefully refined progressive licks define “Tear Of A Traitor”. Followed by the hymn “Carry On”, these overwhelming songs truly highlight the album.
Once you start listening, Conundrum floods your senses, ingests your mind and draws you deep into a psychedelic sonic adventure rock labyrinth which you cannot escape.
A sonorous wave takes you on an electrifying ride with HÄLLAS’ second single, “Carry On”. The track is more than just a tiny puzzle piece of the upcoming album, Conundrum: The mystic story of the moon knight draws you into HÄLLAS’ adventure far away from reality and is accompanied by a guitar driven up-tempo melody, designed to stay in your head – forever. The straightforward 70’s rock attitude provides the perfect hypnotizing atmosphere and contains just the right dynamics for you to follow Tommy Alexandersson’s entrancing spells: “carry on, carry on”!
