The Quill  


The interestingly-named The Quill emerged in the early nineties (some members previously played in a similarly-named band, Quil) and have made their mark on the Swedish metal scene with albums such as the also-strangely-titled Hooray! It's A Deathtrip. Musically, The Quill is often categorized as a stoner rock band, but this is slightly misleading; while they do have some similarities with that genre, but they aren't a Kyuss or Fu Manchu clone like many in that crowd. Vocalist Magnus Ekwall (since departed) is a dead ringer for Chris Cornell (Soundgarden, Audioslave), and mid-period Soundgarden is possibly the closest musical reference point as well, with perhaps a few Monster Magnet-isms thrown in as well. Hooray! It's a Deathtrip is an excellent heavy rock album, one that can be recommended to metal fans without hesitation.
