Here's a nice surprise from Sweden aka the land of death metal, Witchcraft and Graveyard. Maskin is a gang of rowdy Swedes who play a thick'n'heavy mix of hard rock and stoner metal. The band's singer personally sent us his music, so we're pretty much best friends now. And I'm going to reap the rewards when these guys make it big. They're gearing up for a full-length release in winter and if they keep up the fuzzy guitars, desert solos and gruff vocals, it's going to be a kickass album. The type of album you play in your car while driving on a deserted highway with the wind in your hair and the sun reflecting off your sunglasses.
You can check Maskin out on Facebook and Soundcloud, but I'm embedding their songs here too, just in case you're too lazy to click one extra time.
