Profile: Stephen Wilson of Infernal Rockers Swilson


You won’t find blast beats or pinch harmonics or even cookie monster vocals in any of Swilson‘s music but you will find a band that counts Aleister Crowley, Sabbath and Blue Oyster Cult as influences as well as a band that lets it all hang out through good time rock ‘n’ roll with a bent for the dark side. With song titles like “Witchtrial Modern Day” and “Witchcraft 2018” it’s a shoe-in for a must listen. And they back it up with ferocious licks and a serious punk attitude that recalls the days when rock didn’t give a damn if it was a bad influence on the kiddos. Good times, to be sure.
