The Swedish Invasion

Veteran musicians from throughout Sweden have come together to form Mad Invasion. The band features past and present alumni from such acts as Alien, Madison, Bad Habit, Bai Bang, Raise Cain, Unit, and Silver Mountain. Mad Invasion’s sound is described as vintage 70s with a modern approach. Their debut album, Edge of the World, is set to be released in September 2021. I had the chance to speak with Mad Invasion guitarists Hal Marabel and Björn Danhlberg ahead of the album’s release.

Highlights Include

  •  Discussion of their new album Edge of the World
  • The unconventional way the band writes and records
  • Motörhead/Scorpions’ Mikkey Dee’s involvement with the new album
  • Supplementing music videos for touring
  • How the band formed while having other bands they are a part of
  • Hal’s involvement with the band Bad Habit
  • Bjorn’s production work
  • … and much, much more!
