A seven-minute audio file containing snippets of five songs that will appear on “Boogie From Hell” can be streamed using the SoundCloud widget below.
The CD’s sound is described in a press release as “groovy, shaky-boogie-rock ‘n’ roll metal … for the fans of CLUTCH, CATHEDRAL, CORROSION OF CONFORMITY, MUSTASCH and even VOLBEAT.”
TRANSPORT LEAGUE played its first reunion show on May 15, 2009 on the Terass stage at Henriksberg in Gothenburg, Sweden.
Commented the group: “TRANSPORT LEAGUE was the band who invented the phrase ‘boogie from hell,’ well known and well heard on the two first albums, ‘Stallion Showcase’ (1995) and ‘Superevil’ (1997). Just listen to tracks such as ‘Cosmical Satanical’ and ‘Lost In The Desert Of Habib’ and you will understand what we are talking about.
“TRANSPORT LEAGUE no doubt paved the way for such artists as VOLBEAT and MUSTASCH, drawing from many sources to create a new format for heavy guitar-driven groovy rock.”
TRANSPORT LEAGUE‘s fourth full-length album, “Multiple Organ Harvest”, was released in November 2003 through Holland’s Seamview Records.
