Recommendation: Lingua


Jun 14 2006, 9h23

As i found out that not many people are listening to Lingua here on, i decided to write my journal about them. I don't know much about the band, but i think they're from Sweden and consinst of 4 people. I just LOVE their music and that's enough. Their debut is called "The Smell of a Life that could have been" and was released a month ago or so. Now to the question: "What bands do they sound like?"

Well, imagine a mix between Tool and Chevelle and you're pretty close. They sometimes remind me of Oceansize as well.
The guitars and riffs are quite "toolish" and the singer(s) often sing quite similar to Maynard. The songs are not that complex that's why i brought up Chevelle as an associaton. As standout-track on their record i recommend Constant State of Puttra, coz it sums up pretty well what the band stands for and sounds like.

Alright folks, make sure you check them out, for they're one of my favourite newcomers this year (along with Wolfmother, of course ;) ).

    newcomers? they've been around for years! (in aus at least..) Yeah, they have been around for some time, but in Australia? - I did not know that! If memory serves me, I think they've released six or seven demos, and they have played live a lot. It's nice to see they are getting fans from outside Sweden too! =)

    If you like Lingua, you'll probably enjoy Aoria as well. Aoria's singer, Erik Nilsson, engineered part of The Smell Of A Life That Could Have Been. Aoria is slightly softer, but more dynamic.
