Swedish melodic hard rockers H.E.A.T have just released a video For ‘Bastards of Society‘, taken from their brand new album / Blu-ray ‘Live at Sweden Rock Festival‘.

If there is one hard rock band you need to see live, H.E.A.T should make the top of your list. Singer Erik Grönwall’s striking charisma paired with the powerful energy created by the band makes every H.E.A.T concert an extraordinary experience. This was also true for the performance at Sweden Rock festival on June 7th, 2018 which followed their highly acclaimed studio album ‘Into The Great Unknown” (2017) (which Classic Rock UK praised as “the most complete album of their career”).

Their second ever live recording – and for the first time on video – includes all of the band’s remarkable hymns such as ‘Living On The Run‘, ‘A Shot At Redemption‘ or ‘Bastard Of Society‘. Every song from this setlist is as lively and intoxicating as the next, making this a memorable show that every rock music fan will enjoy. Or as H.E.A.T themselves put it: ”We heard the call and answered. Fire and Hard Rock in the night. For our entire career people have been going on about us making a ’DVD/Blu-ray’ and we can finally reveal that we will be releasing ’Live At Sweden Rock Festival’. For those of you who have yet to see us live, this is as close as it gets. So go out and roll around in the garden, get an uneven tan, have 1-20 beers and kick back in your couch for the ultimate festival experience. Happy watching!

Review: H.E.A.T – Live At Sweden Rock Festival

earMusic July 26th 2019

Reviewer: Dan Mann

If there’s one thing H.E.A.T fans know, this is a band you have to see live! Fronted by the Duracell bunny that is vocalist Eric Grönwall, H.E.A.T always put on a highly energetic and entertaining show, this time captured at the legendary Sweden Rock Festival. It’s unfortunate that the promo supplied is only the audio portion of the album as it’s being released on DVD/Blu-ray, the Blu-ray also containing eight of the band’s Official videos, so I cannot comment on the sound and picture of said discs.

Kicking off with ‘Bastard Of Society‘ from the band’s last studio album ‘Into The Great Unknown‘ your straight away dragged kicking and screaming up to the barrier, the pace not dropping as your taken straight into ‘Late Night Lady‘ off the debut album, this live rendition more pumped and in your face.

You’d think they’d take a slight breather, but the relentless energy continues unabated as ‘Mannequin Show‘ is given the live treatment. I’d like to tell you what Eric’s banter is between songs but my Swedish is basically non-existant and anyway why should a Swedish band at a Swedish festival speak English?

It’s pleasing that H.E.A.T don’t concentrate solely on their latest studio album with a couple of older tracks thrown in, instead they delve into their entire catalogue of songs, energising them to the absolute max. Plus the same is metered out to their cover of Janis Joplin‘s ‘Piece of My Heart‘ slotted on the end of ‘Beg Beg Beg‘.

All in all a thoroughly enjoyable live release, my only disapointment apart from not sampling the Blu-ray is the non inclusion of probably my favorite H.E.A.T track ‘Downtown‘, however that is on the ‘Live In London‘ release.

I’ve got a bit of a wait until I see H.E.A.T again, but one thing I do know is they’ll grab next year’s Monsters Of Rock Cruise by the short and curlies and will take no prisoners!

 

 

H.E.A.T are set to release their second live album this July with the release of ‘Live At Sweden Rock Festival‘ on July 26th 2019 via Ear Music. It will be released as a CD+BD Digipak and Digital.

This second live recording, first time on video, includes all of the band’s remarkable hymns such as ‘Living On The Run‘, ‘A Shot At Redemption‘ & ‘Bastard Of Society‘. Every song from this set list is as lively and intoxicating as the next, making this a memorable show that every rock music fan will enjoy.

Or as H.E.A.T themselves put it: ”We heard the call and answered. Fire and Hard Rock in the night. For our entire career people have been going on about us making a ’DVD/Blu-ray’ and we can finally reveal that we will be releasing ’Live At Sweden Rock Festival’. For those of you who have yet to see us live, this is as close as it gets.
