Veni Vidi Vicious





A phenomenon in Sweden since the mid-'90s, The Hives now stand ready to take the US by storm. Their balls out sound, which draws from all that is good about rock and roll music from the '50s, '60s, '70s, and '80s, combined with the rawest attitude on the block, is perfectly captured on Veni Vidi Vicious. The album is a collection of 12 of the fastest, sweatiest rock tracks youíve ever heard, with such standouts as "Supply and Demand," "Knock Knock," and "Die, All Right!" leading the charge. "Main Offender," which was used in a UK lingerie commercial starring the sexy Kylie Minogue, is currently in regular rotation on MTV2, and "Hate To Say I Told You So" will be going for adds at the beginning of April. The Hives have graced the cover of UK rock ëní roll bibles NME and Kerrang, while US magazines like Spin, Details, and GQ have all done feature stories on the hip-as-hell Swedish crew. It seems clear. The Hives are coming and we can either join them or join them ñ yea, I know, weíve pretty much got no choice. Hereís a little something to spark your interest. MATT DuFOUR
