AATR Premier – Transport League – Criminal Energy official video12th March 2021
The pandemic struck us hard just like it did to the whole music business & live scene.
At the end of April 2020 we decided to wrap up our songwriting sessions and drag ourselves into the studio.
We entered Grand Recordings and El Bastardo studio in our hometown Gothenburg.
The engineering was handled by Dan Johansson (ex Mary Beats Jane & Generous Maria) and Henrik Danhage (El Bastardo Studio & Evergrey), we did the production ourselves but with advisory from both Dan J & Henrik D. Mixing was done by Svein Jensen (Grand Recordings), Mastering by Philip Granquist.
The 11 tracks breathe a lot of live-take energy and with some moody breakdown tracks as well. Guest appearances, by Sal Abruscato (ex Type O Negative, A Pale Horse Named Death) on the track March, Kiss, Die and by Christian Sture (Heal) on Kaiserschnitt, fits like a glove. The album has a Transport League signature all over!
Groovy, energetic, catchy & with a lot of rock’n’roll references all over.
The first single Criminal Energy speaks for itself.
Criminal Energy deals with powers within a human entity. The undisputed, unchained strength of abilities that guides the way to a better life and understanding which will and should be untamed.
