TENTAKEL : The solo project of Gothenburg’s most infamous and manic drummer, Pontus Torstensson, is a one-man sound army. He uses an acoustic drum set, several synthesizers a sampler to create an intense musical experience.
Now he has started a collaboration with Ebbot Lundberg.
Ebbot Lundberg has made a name for himself as the charismatic frontman and bandleader of two of Scandinavian rock history's most important and influential acts. First, as the energetic madman of the subversive underground rock ´n´roll band UNION CARBIDE PRODUCTIONS (1986-1993), and secondly with the more pop/ rock/psychedelic act THE SOUNDTRACK OF OUR LIVES (1994-2012).
Tentakel/Ebbot have just recorded 2 songs together and premiered couple of shows.
The latest full-lenght album TwoFace is an intense 29-minute journey consisting of nine tracks that brings us through the disco sound of Giorgio Moroder, the soundtracks of John Carpenter and the industrial dance of bands like Front 242 and Nitzer Ebb. All instruments are played by Pontus, but on the first single and video ”Translucent”, Sebastian McMurphy from Viagra Boys contributes vocals. The track is about the idea of turning into a translucent crab and staying down deep in the ocean, forgetting about all the troubles on the surface.
