Cosmic Overdose - 4668 LP 1981

Finally their second and last LP where they continued to develop their nordic, mystic sound. This album is a bit darker and moodier than their first and also more menacing in the lyrics. A sort of bleak fog hangs over the tracks, possibly aquired in their more prog-days but with an almost Suicide-feel with the drummachine (apparently the pattern used for most this LP were nicked from a suicide song, cant remember which one). Its a great album and its "darkness" really gets to me, mostly in Liten Storsint, Hissen and Nina Fontanell. It could be Dans angry vocals or the slightly more cold wave-orientation. When looking upon the scenes in scandinavia its possible to point out some bands that had a distinctly nordic sound, like Cosmic Overdose: Scatterbrain from denmark, Beranek from norway... (If anyone knows more bands that sounds like this, do contact me!). But ive never heard a band that sounds quite like this. And look at the cover, it speaks volumes of the sound found inside. Again, you need this!

One of my alltime favorite albums.
My ex art-teacher (Thomas Andersson/Jimmy Cyklon) is a former member of Cosmic Overdose, he was in this album.
