The third album released by Frontiers Music on 27th January that I’m posting a recommendation for is a little different from the other two! From 80’s rock icons we move to modern day gothic metal and the fourth album from Swedish band The Murder of My Sweet entitled “Echoes of the Aftermath”. I played the opening track “Sleeping Giant” on the Friday NI Rocks Show on 3rd February and the title track “Echoes of the Aftermath” on the Show on the 17th February.


The Murder of My Sweet formed in 2006 and released their debut album “Divanity” in 2010. Two further albums followed in 2012 and 2015. The gothic / symphonic end of the rock genre is one that can be hit or miss with me, but I really liked what I heard when I checked out “Echoes of the Aftermath” – I may have to go back and revisit the earlier albums!

The band are also often referred to as “cinematic metal” as many of their songs have been inspired by movies. The Murder of My Sweet are Angelica Rylin on vocals, Daniel Flores on drums and keyboards, Patrick Janson on bass and Christopher Vetter on guitar.


There are 12 tracks on the album. In addition to the two tracks I’ve played so far, my favourites would be “Personal Hell”, “Racing Heart”, “Cry Wolf” and “Shining After Dark”

About “NI Rocks Recommends”

The simple idea behind “NI Rocks Recommends” is to acknowledge and promote some of the great music being submitted to Rock Radio NI. I'll not be giving marks or ratings or analyzing the tracks in great detail; just telling you something about the artist and the album. It’s a personal recommendation to go check something out, not a traditional “review”!

My musical tastes cover most things rock; from the not too melodic to the not too heavy. The albums that I’ll be recommending are those that you’ll hear me playing tracks from on my shows on Rock Radio NI.
