FREAK KITCHEN has always been a tremendously respected live act and for the first time the energetic live vibe of FREAK KITCHEN has been captured in the studio. With influences stretching from AC/DC to classical South Indian music the three Norsemen, lead by guitar virtuoso Mattias IA Eklundh, truly have a sound of their own. Cooking with Pagans offers eleven intense original songs plus a sophisticated punk pop version of the 1936 hit “Goody Goody” like you’ve never heard it before. Cooking with Pagans is solid, inspired song writing (not to say playing) from start to finish.
Thanks to a hugely successful Kickstarter campaign, bringing in almost $150,000, a very ambitious animated video, directed by legendary artist (and author of Blacksad) Juanjo Guarnido to the track “Freak of the Week” is in pain staking production by a world-class team of animators. The video will premiere at Comic Con in New York in October.
Guitarist Mattias IA Eklundh on 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.”
FREAK KITCHEN will tour the world from November and the better part of 2015 to support their new release.
