Szabotage: Bring forward unique, brutal, tender, funny, and heartfelt offerings.

Szabotage – Sick-Pack

It’s no secret that getting a visible six-pack is a common goal for many gym-goers. In addition Six-Pack is an album title and the band behind the music is Szabotage and they offer an amalgam of metal, rock and prog.

Szabotage was born when long-time friends – located in Hawaii, Vancouver and Ottawa – came together online to have a crack at recording a couple of songs as a way to battle the lockdown demons created during the COVID pandemic. Szabotage with the track Mistakes Were Made,

While the creative process has always been therapeutic for all members of Szbotage, this experience introduced them to therapy at a new level. The chances taken in song structures, performances and production perhaps felt like they could be some of the last. This resulted in a sweet combination of desperation and the thrill of riding the edge that was somehow captured in the tracks. It blended perfectly and bred life into what is now the final product. The track Fremont,

Inspired by multiple influences, including Black Sabbath, Faith No More, the Blizzard of Ozz, Anthrax, Tool, and Opeth (naming only a few), Szabotage draws its roots from the masters and the giants of heavy. In a non-traditional manner, they add a healthy shot of creativity and their own flavor of musical mastery to bring forward a unique, brutal, tender, funny, and heartfelt debut offering, full of tasty ear candy and non-stop imagery.

About Ulf Backstrøm (7405 Articles)
Mitt hovedfokus er musikk som er basert på progressiv tenking. Jeg er på ingen måte ensporet innen musikksmak, i likhet med intensjonen bak prog. Sjangerbegrepet er egentlig temmelig uinteressant annet enn til å gi en pekepinn om hva slags musikk det er snakk om i en anmeldelse. Jeg søker god musikk for å utfordre meg som lytter. God musikk til å trigge mine musikalske smaksløker, og til å sette i gang mine refleksjoner. Da er sjansen stor for at jeg utvikler meg og lærer, noe som bør være drivstoff for et hvert menneske. Fordi det å lære og utvikle seg er noe som tilfører livet en nødvendig porsjon "krydder". Slikt krydderet finner man blant annet i musikk. Ikke overraskende mener jeg at progressiv musikk har den fineste "smaken". På den annen side kan musikk med eller uten progressive elementer være godt nok til hverdags. Til fest derimot holder bare rendyrket prog! Må jo også få med at jeg rimelig kritisk, og jeg mener at det lages mye prog som er i beste fall uinteressant, og faktisk mye som er pinlig dårlig. Heldigvis oppveies dette av ekstremt dyktige aktører som for eksempel: Flower Kings, Mostly Autumn og White Willow, for å nevne noen tilfeldig valgte.
