Mustasch - Latest Version of The Truth

Melodic rock/metal is doing rather well in Sweden at the moment, and Mustasch are gaining quite a following as they progress with this, their fourth full-length album and its lead single Double Nature.

Having come to the end of their contract with EMI in Sweden, Mustasch decided to attempt to spread their music and appeal further afield. They began by self-releasing a new EP, Parasite!, throughout Scandinavia in 2006. The EP did quite well in the region and helped them secure a worldwide record deal with Regain Records, for whom Latest Version of The Truth is their first release.

Describing Moustaschís sound is difficult. At times vocalist/guitarist Ralf Gyllenhammar can sound like JB (Grand Magus/Spiritual Beggars), Michael Poulsen (Volbeat), Ian Astbury (The Cult) and (). And at times none of them. The most similar band in terms of sound is possibly Gotthard, although Mustaschís riffs tend to be heavier and their equally-hooky choruses more aggressive.

There are in fact a lot of different styles and sounds on this album, making it a non-stop interesting listen. I Wanna Be Love, for instance, sounds like The Cult through the verses, then the chorus crashes in with the albumís heaviest riff. Half-way through the mood changes, as the drums, riffing and vocals in turn become more aggressive. The closest we get to a power ballad is Bring Me Everyone, which is acoustic in the verses, but has an expansive, powerful and heavy chorus. Then the use of strings on Double Nature, Forever Begins Today and progressive closer The End produce the albums highlights.
