Cooking With Pagans
“You can expect a beefy rock album, freak style. I think that Cooking with Pagans finally has the sound and energy of Freak Kitchen live; the energy and rawness. It is anything but overproduced, stripped down, drums, bass and guitar. To the point.” – Mattias “IA” Eklundh
It has been 5 years since Freak Kitchen graced us with a new album. Since the release of 2009’s Land Of The Freaks, the band has toured the world – making stops in Europe, USA, and Asia along the way. Finally the band was able to settle down in their home base of Sweden to record the long awaited follow up Cooking With Pagans.
The album finds the band collaborating with Blacksad comic book creator and former Disney animator Juanjo Guarnido. In addition to creating the amazing packaging for the album, Mr. Guarnido has created an incredible animated video to support the album release.
Freak Kitchen consists of world renowned guitarist Mattias “IA” Eklundh, bassist Christer Ortefors and drummer Bjorn Fryklund, The trio offers an intense blend of progressive metal and rock, often served up with a wicked dose of humor. RIYL Frank Zappa, Steve Vai, and Bumblefoot.
