For those of you not familiar with Bombus: they were formed in Gothenburg in around 2008 as a two piece and in 2009 they expanded to a four piece. Shortly afterwards they released their eponymous debut album. Bombus toured extensively through Scandinavia and Europe and in 2013 released their second album, “The Poet And The Parrot”. An appearance at this year’s [2015] Download festival has introduced Bombus to a wider UK audience and if there’s any logic and reason in the world this will kick them on to another level.

It’s hard to describe Bombus’ sound because there really is nothing like it. Yes, of course Bombus are a metal band in the finest traditions of Scandinavian metal bands. Their performance at Download showcased their skill, energy and versatility, but how much ground can you cover in a 30 minute set?

There is a huge energy on stage and off as Bombus and the head-banging crowd fuse as one. The driving guitar rhythms and ‘pumping eights’ send hair flying all over the place. Explosive drum rolls and thumping bass lines sends hearts racing as everyone in the tent loses themselves in the moment the torrential rain outside seems another world away. This is heavy rock at its finest. You can hear elements of early Black Sabbath, a touch of Motörhead, and maybe even a little early Metallica. Somehow it all comes together to create a sound that is uniquely Scandinavian rock.
