Swedish traditional metallers OVERDRIVE will release their new album, “Angelmaker”, on January 21 via Lion Music. The CD was recorded by the band and Johan Blomkvist (BLINDED COLONY, KAPTAIN SUN) and mixed by Pelle Saether (GRAND DESIGN, DIABOLICAL, WOLF) at Studio Underground. The band has also, for the first time, included a cover song. It’s a classic heavy metal arrangement on the Russ Ballard-penned track “I Know There’s Something Going On”, originally recorded by Frida, of ABBA fame, back in 1982.
The “Angelmaker” cover, was once again created by acclaimed cover artist Monowasp (TNT, HOUSE OF LORDS, PLACE VENDOME) and depicts an “angelmaker” doing her deed (which was to make angels of [mostly] illegitimate babies).

“I have worked with Pelle on several other recordings, such as LOCOMOTIVE BREATH, MOUNTAIN OF POWER and ZELLO, and he has an ability to understand and capture just the sound you’re after,” Janne stated. “He did that this time, too. To be honest, this is the best-sounding OVERDRIVE album to date.”
