Albums Of The Week: Tidal Wave | The Lord Knows

Let the dark power of these Swedish stoner rockers' sophomore LP wash over you.

THE EDITED PRESS RELEASE: “Swedish stoner and fuzz rock newcomers Tidal Wave join the Ripple Music roster for the release of their sophomore album The Lord Knows.

The Sundsvall-based rock merchants are about to hit all households strong with a deluge of raucous fuzzy anthems. They left their stamp on the Swedish stoner rock scene with their 2019 debut album Blueberry Muffin — and now the talented four-piece return with an impressive and memorable collection of songs that aims to fill each air particle with fire, fuzz and power. From the rip-roaring and cathartic force of Robbero Bobbero to the stadium-worthy hooks of Purple Bird, Tidal Wave delivers the ultimate blend of in-your-face stoner rock and classic heavy bravura with epic solos for ages, and mind-blowing vocals from frontman Alexander ‘Sunkan’ Sundqvist.

Tidal Wave revel in the power of the riff. They’ve been crafting music together since 2019, drawing from a fertile wellspring of influences including classic bands like Black Sabbath, Nirvana and Audioslave. Their raucous and finely crafted brand of stoner rock has garnered hundreds of thousands of streams and now they’re ready to push to the next level.”
