Forever bound by camaraderie, stubbornness and a shared vision to bring high octane, earth shattering, bone crushing rock’n’roll to the masses, Swedish band Bellybuster are finally here with their debut album When the Morning Comes. To fulfill their vision they have enlisted renowned producer Gene “Machine” Freeman (Clutch, Lamb of God, Crobot, et al.) – and the result is a truly marvelous rock’n’roll record.

The roots of Bellybuster trace back fifteen years, when the core trio of the band – Tomas Olsson (vocals, guitar), Martin Javerbrant (bass) and Beo Kjellsson (drums) – first started out in their hometown Växjö in the South of Sweden. It was however when they added a second guitarist in Wincent Ek (Violent Work of Art, The Killbilly 5’ers) in 2016 that they really caught momentum and started putting their already well established vision into realization. So, while When the Morning Comes hasn’t been literally fifteen years in the making, it still neatly sums up what Bellybuster are, and have always been all about. And, yes, it is rock’n’roll we’re talking about here, folks.

The decision to have Machine the Producer mixing When the Morning Comes is a stroke of genius: combining their early, rather obvious AC/DC influences, with the progressive Southern twang of Clutch and the quirky wittiness of fellow Scandinavians DAD, he and Bellybuster have come up with a modern sounding debut, albeit filled with more or less subtle hints to rock history. It is an album of intent, a statement, that says as much about Bellybuster, as it says about the state of rock today – dead it is indeed not, but well alive and blistering with the sort of energy you hear throughout tracks such as the smoldering Head On, the roaring fun of Watcha Gonna Do About It, or the solid ball of rock that is the title track.

When the Morning Comes might be their first, but it will certainly not be their last album, because Bellybuster are here to stay – because they want it, because they need it, because they love it and because the rest of us fucking need ‘em. Or – to sum it up in their own words: “Gimme whole lotta love / gimme whole lotta lovin’ / gimme whole lotta honey / gimme rock’n’roll”
