‘Welcome To Stockholm’ was inspired by the legendary ‘Welcome To Venice’ compilation which was released in 1985 and gathered tracks from bands in the Venice Beach, CA area including Suicidal Tendencies and Excel. Sometimes a geographic area develops its own sound like “Bay Area Thrash” or “Florida Death Metal.” In this case, we celebrate the “Stockholm Sound.” This particular brand of death metal, generally recorded by Tomas Skogsberg at Sunlight Studio in Stockholm, Sweden, peaked between 1988 and 1994. The unique "buzzsaw" guitar tone was created by a combination of heavily detuned electric guitars and a 60 watt Peavey amp exclusively miked from behind the speaker cabinet, thus prioritizing the low frequencies in the recording process; sometimes also maxing out the Boss HM-2 Heavy Metal pedal. In the intervening years, there have been many imitators, but these are the progenitors of the sound. The artwork uses a piece by Dan Seagrave whose work graced many of the classic albums spawned by this scene.
