Rather than write you a long introduction trying to convince you to listen to one of my favorite bands, I'll steal Wikipedia's description of the band which does them far more justice than I ever could.

"Truckfighters is a rock band from Sweden." (Source)

And here are some songs that you should like if you want to be my friend.



They also have a new album out.



And I'm going to see them live for my birthday at an ax-throwing venue/gun range. So there's that.

For fans of: stoner rock, Kyuss, good music

Aaaaaaaaw yeah these guys are the tits. I saw them live opening for Kverletak and that's when I discovered them. They fucked killed me!
Fantastic live band I gotta say. All three guys put so much energy into their set and mvoe around a lot.

I remember I was blasting this song for a week after watching them... What a way to open an album.

Catchy fuzzy stoner riffs at their finest. GravX in its entirety is perfect, I wish they'd just play the whole thing for their next show but they'll probably play a bunch of songs from the new album - which is unfortunately my least favorite of the bunch but I'd rather see them play an album I don't like as much than not see them play anything at all.

And good to hear some positive feedback about their live show. Kvelertak is another band I'd kill to see live (and one I missed out on about a month or so ago as mentioned earlier to Joe for the simple reason I forgot).

My stoner-music exposure goes about as far as a Kyuss song in Guitar Hero Metallica and a Barn Burner CD I bought 3 years ago.

Nevertheless I can't say I disliked that stuff and "catchy fuzzy stoner riffs at their finest" sounds good to me. Since I have limited YT access I'm gonna save my first hearing of these guys for the live setting.

And yeah if they just put a new album out, they will probably be playing a pretty high dose of that stuff. Which is probably what made the "Heritage Hunter" tour featuring Opeth and Mastodon 2 years ago largely a boring time. Luckily both Opeth and Mastodon played a few of their good songs each and Ghost saved the day by knocking my socks off with their opener.

Universe is one of the best Albums in Rock so far. I often say Music isnt a competition but these boys bring the world of shame on QOTSA of how to do proper Stoner. Great band

I can now officially confirm that these guys are absolutely amazing live. Their stage presence is immense. Dango's basically the Angus Young of stoner rock, and they have a great time involving the crowd in their shows as much as possible.

Double confirmed, definitely a very good live band.

I agree to an extent with Raven also, Universe kicks ass. Sort of by default my album of the year so far, being one of only 2 things I have listened to from 2014, but I'm sure it'll stay up there even when I hear more.

It is unoriginal, but few stoner bands bring their game as well as Truckfighters. That's for damn sure.

Universe has been involved in my sleepy times music listening for like 3 or 4 days in a row and I gotta say, it's just getting better and better. Might even chisel a spot into the regular bedtime rotation, and considering how many albums have held that, that's not an easy thing to do.

It's one of those albums that doesn't try to do too much, and just has really sound and effective songwriting, but is also detailed at times to keep it interesting. There's just a perfect fuzz level on it for me also, which helps to make it somewhat relaxing, hence my listening to it before bed. It's a good length too. I think I will definitely be exploring this band's discography a bit more, in time.

This guys are just so fun live. I want to see them again. One time isn't enough.
Really good HD video of one of my favorite tracks by these guys.

I saw them share that on their FB page earlier and already watched it three times. Hopefully they make it back to Canada on a tour at some point, they put on a great show.
