“Seasick”, the new video from ROSVO, the Swedish hardcore band fronted by THE HAUNTED vocalist Peter Dolving, can be seen below. The song comes off the group’s debut EP, “Ticks And Ants”, which is available on iTunes.
“Ticks And Ants” track listing:
01. Mommy Dearest
02. Start Chopping
04. Theme Park Family Fun
Commented Dolving: “[THE HAUNTED guitarist Anders Björler and I] shot this video in 45 minutes [in] Shibuya, Tokyo [during THE HAUNTED‘s early December Japanese tour]. Anders and Peter, one iPhone and a bunch of people on their way somewhere wondering what the hell the guy with the beard was going on about. Anders edited it in a couple of hours when we got home and here we have it.”
In a recent interview with Metal Shock Finland, Dolving stated about ROSVO, “[The band] in itself is not really open for speculation or storytelling. It’s all about the music and the words. Anything outside of that, and the images it brings out are really completely uninteresting.”
Regarding ROSVO‘s musical direction and lyrical themes, Dolving said, “We are like a fastfood hardcore. We ARE the identikit. We ARE the cool tattoos. We ARE the macho. The über-tough guys, and a token of a politically correct. We are more straight-edge than an ecological box, We are stamped justice mince soy and we are angry. Very very angry. I’m sure some people will feel a great deal of discomfort by our well-defined agro. We are like Ninja in the night. Oh yes. Beware.”
ROSVO consists of Dolving, Hans Simonen, Martin Lundgren and David Andersson.
