The Blue Collar Army’s new album Norrland, has all the sounds of a society trapped inside its own misdoings. The Blue Collar Army, the Swedish doom-metal band thinks it’s time for an uprising.
Check out the band’s new video:
It’s a thought-provoking Swedish group. The Blue Collar Army says it belongs to no genre, but instead it belongs only to anger, hate and suffering.
In 2011, the band released the EP Front de Beuf, which was released through Ladysnow Society.
There are no identifiers for the band members, only descriptions of what their characters represent.
— The Englishman, brought up in a wealthy family on the English country side. His disdain for the non-gentlemen is almost as great as his joy for hurt.
— The Old Man, a former professional Santa Claus. After 30 years of bringing joy to the world he realized that what the world really needs is not joy but grief.
— The Party Bear, as the life of the party he will always have death by his side.
— The Pig, a highly social and intelligent man that can work any room with no problem. At the same time he is downing champagne he plans a way to stab you in the back.
— Baron von Horst, behind an old German gas mask from the first world war there is nothing but hate. This man hasn’t said a word since he put it on but word is NOT violence. Violence IS violence.
Regardless of the characters, this is an innovative band that contributes a lot to the conversation. Give a listen.
