Die südschwedische Küstenstadt Helsingborg ist ein schier unerschöpflicher Quell schwermetallischer Kreativität, aus der nicht nur die Metalveteranen THE DEFACED, sondern auch jede Menge ihrer weiteren und ehemaligen Bands kamen und kommen. Während Gitarrist Mattias Svensson und Drummer Bob Ruben ebenfalls bei den Thrashern Kayser aktiv sind, ist Klas Ideberg (Gitarre) auch Mitglied bei Darkane, bei denen auch Frontmann Jens Broman mal sang. Am Freitag kam die neue Scheibe „Charlatans“ voller groovigem Thrash Metal mit melancholisch-progressivem Touch auf den Markt, von der es nun die Single `Wreck` im Video gibt.

Die Band über Song und Video:

“The lyrics are about the aftermath of an ended relationship. The feelings one can feel after the dust has settled after the initial shock and hypertension has left body and soul. One can still have a deep attraction to each other but there is no way the relationship can continue, too much trust and hard words have been spilled along the way and the sadness that can bring to both parties. „We have always been very intrigued by soviet propaganda posters and esthetics. A relationship can sometimes feel like a totalitarian state, where you sometimes can feel that your personal freedom is restricted. I was in East Berlin with my parents a couple of months before the Berlin wall was torn down and I still remember the gloominess of grayness of the buildings and clothes. The lyrics are projected upon walls just like communistic propaganda. I love how our video producer (Rob Hakemo) imitated the Cyrillic alphabet, it created an extra tension to the video.”
