ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Swedish garage punk band Apa State Mental is back with their second release
on their own label The Almighty Kong. The follow-up to 2007’s self-titled debut is called
“The Reunited Heavy Metal States of Apa State Mental” and features twenty tracks in just over
half an hour, keeping it short and sweet. The release is also available on vinyl.
2008 saw the band play a number of shows in Sweden, songs from the debut were featured
on a lot of American podcasts such as Burrito Electrico, Blaqart Radio and Rock N Roll Geek Show
and the track “You Wanna“ finished in the top five on PunkRadioCast’s Top 40 Countdown
in February 2009. Press play!

Reviews:

Lowcut:
"The music of Apa State Mental is like listening to the most obnoxious boys in a kindergarten fighting on the playground. And that’s not an insult, it’s a compliment!"
"Well, the word genius lies on my tongue – dare I speak it? Oh yes, I dare, I dare…" 5 out of 5


I-94 Bar:
"If the Hives traded in their white suits at the door for straight jackets, this album would be the soundtrack to the Thorazine kicking in."

Bobby Durango (Rock City Angels):
"APA STATE MENTAL have long been my favorite, new punkrockandroll band and you've now given me even more reason to feel that way."

Ox-Fanzine:
"Wild genug für diese Vermutung klingen sie auch diesmal, spannen einen weiten Bogen von eher an die STOOGES erinnerndem Proto-Punk über rücksichtslose NEW BOMB TURKS-Blasts und frühe(!) HIVES bis zu HENRY FIAT'S OPEN SORE-mäßigem LoFi-Geschraddel." 8 out of 10

20 tracks. The longest one doesn't even clock in at two and a half minutes. The first one is called "Eaten By Hippies." The guitars: fuzzy. The vocals: distorted. The songs: aggressive, often incendiary. These are all good things. Fittingly, these chaps from Sweden crank out some really good garage-ified rock. Still not sure if I fully understand the band's name, but that's not important. What is important is the way this group can switch on a whim – between the controlled melodic stomp of "A.P.A." and the frenzied charge of "Jacob's Inferno," a sub-60-second track that punches you in the gut and then runs away before you catch your breath. While the guitar tones and the vocal approaches remain fairly consistent during these 20 numbers, it's what the guys do within those confines that makes this disc so impressive. "Kids on Mars" uses a rolling bassline for its backbone, while "Hardly A Sane Man's Wallpaper" finds the guitar frantically warbling, running the show. This is a full-bore, straight shot of unfettered rock. Get into it.

Blaqart Radio Podcast
“One of the most rockin' albums to come out in 2008 without a
doubt! If I was from Sweden I would probably use a word like
Gesicht or Nacken... maybe not.. I don't know Swedish! But I have
listened to this album several times and honestly love it.“
