Lugnet is a Swedish hard-rock band with a heavy, swaggering, riffy sound that hearkens back to the 1970s. The band has made its mark recently with two videos: ‘It Ain’t Easy’ released October 30th and ‘All The Way’, released in December 2014. Both videos have a definite grindhouse, mini-movie flavour, and both feature Christina Lindberg (one of Quentin Tarantino’s favourite actresses, and star of the film Thriller – a flick that inspired Tarantino’s ‘Kill Bill’).
The band’s name means “tranquility”, or literally “the calm”, in Swedish, and it’s also the name of the area where they rehearse.
To quote the band’s own bio:
Lugnet is an upcoming Swedish band with the tough, gritty sounds of ’70s hard rock that features well rounded musicians with touring and recording experience.
The guitar driven attack from Mackan and Bonden delivers crushing riffs and classic rock melodies, that rides on the steady and driving rhythm section of extraordinary bass player Z and drummer Jansson (ex. Witchcraft). The lead singer Roger (Ken Hensley) fronts Lugnet with a on-stage swagger, passion & voice reminiscent of the late Ray Gillen (Badlands)..
