by Spiritual Beggars
(Century Media)

The Swedish rock juggernaut known as Spiritual Beggars have returned with their ninth studio and highly anticipated release, 'Sunrise To Sundown'. Apollo Papathanasio on vocals (Firewind, Majestic), Michael Amott on guitars (Arch Enemy, Carcass), Sharlee D'Angelo on bass ( Mercyful Fate, Arch Enemy), Ludwig Witt on drums (Shining, Grand Magus)
and Per Wiberg on keyboards (Hobo, Death, Opeth). What can I say? After one listen, the word I would describe this album is, infectious. The overall vibe has the band's Deep Purple meets Black Sabbath shinning brightly. The riffs the lads have come up with are impossible to get out of your head. No fillers here thats for sure. Highlights include, the title track, the Deep Purple-lish, "Diamond Under Pressure", "What Doesn't Kill You", "Lonely Freedom" and the album closing, "Southern Star".  These are songs that will have you jamming on your air guitars and cranking your speakers to "11". The sounds is well mixed with all the instruments leveled perfectly with the vocals. Spiritual Beggars rocks out with a genuine, talented immersion that will rock your soul. Overall, 'Surise To Sundown"is a balls out rocker firmly rooted in the classic rock era, and you really can't ask for much more from a band playing in this genre. A big thumbs up for this release.  - Highly Recommended
