Boy, this album fizzes from start to finish! Who the hell let these Swedish monsters out of the kennel? Whoever did should be congratulated, as this is guaranteed to wake up the neighbors like the dog barking his head off at 5am in the morning! Lets take a little history lesson. The band started out in 1999 under the handle of Frozen Miffo, a collection of musicians studying at Nordiska Rockmusiklinjen in Mukfors Sweden. A few demos, and a 'host of sour relationships with prospective labels' later, the band were put on frozen ice, as they ventured out doing other projects. However, as per their bio, they got together in December 2002 for one last final fling in the hope of making it, and 'The Hellbum' and a deal with Lion Music is the end result. Following on from this years fantastic Section A release, Lion have struck gold once again. Though Dogpound are brutally heavy at times, they are soooo melodic for a rough and ready band, image notwithstanding. There's no doubting class when you hear it, and the time they spent at 'school' has obviously paid dividends, because the 11 tracks on show throughout is the proof in the pudding. Comparison wise, refer to the guitar power last heard on Rich Ward's Sick Speed project, throw in some Spread Eagle and Saint And Sinners and you'll end up at the entrance to the Dogpound.

The Songs
There's not a weak track here, most of them rockin' up a storm, bludgeon guitar work, but on occasion when they descend out of the dark melodic maelstrom they've created, some lovely acoustic flamenco stuff can be heard. A couple of those milder moments include 'You Remain' and the effortless 'Way Up High', both stopovers on a breathtaking ride. Elsewhere, just crank up tracks like 'When The World Comes Down', 'Loser On A Kings Throne' or the dizzy fast-paced 'For My Sins' to see what I mean.

In Summary
This album (or is that Hellbum?) is gonna take many by surprise. It hasn't taken us for a ride, as we know how good this is: we've just told you so!
