Firecracker debut due out on Escape

firecracker_bornoffire

Escape Music are pleased to announce their next release, due out April 23 - Firecracker's debut album Born Of Fire.


The band Firecracker started some years ago and is the brainchild of Stefan Lindholm (Vindictiv). Before Vindictiv was formed Stefan contacted keyboard maestro Pontus Larsson and they started to work on some of the songs he had laid down. With bass player Fredrik Folkare (Unleached) and Hasse Worzel on drums the band took shape. Vocalist Tommy Karevik from "Seventh Wonder" took care of the vocal duties and the basis of Firecracker came to a reality.


Musically the band is everything you would expect and more from Sweden. For all of you out there that have heard and fallen in love with Vindictiv ("Vindictiv" ESM164 and "Ground Zero" ESM190) then this predecessor is essential listening. The guitar technique of Stefan Lindholm is as crisp and neat as ever, and he seems to effortlessly produce exciting riffs and melodies with nonchalance. His early years admiring and emulating the works of Malmsteen and Vai shine through but he does have a technique of his own that finds its way through. Keyboards play a vital role in the overall sound and there are plenty of these throughout, and when in harmony, form passages of pleasurable rock music. In addition to Pontus Larsson, keyboards are also supplied by classical player Henrik Mawe and his input of elongated keyboards makes this a stunning release and shows a difference to Vindictiv, a band who Stefan naturally progressed from Firecracker.
The CD "Born of Fire" is an exciting look back to the earlier days of Stefan's career, which is now developing into legendary status. It is a release that has an appealing raw edge to it, and it would have been a sin to pass by this fantastic recording. Firecracker is a great name for a band, certainly this one as they fit their moniker exactly.
Line-Up: Stefan Lindholm – Guitars, arrangements; Pontus Larsson – keyboards; Tommy Kerevik – Vocals; Hasse Wazzel - Drums; Fredrik Folkare - Bass.

Track List: 1-Blind Date 2- Second Self 3- Gamekeepers Song 4-Speed Devil 5-Back Broken 6-The Refrain 7-A Place Called Behind 8-Instru (metal).  www.Escape-Music.com.
