By Request: Another Swedish Goodness

Here another one in the line of great bands from Sweden: Firestone. They've made two EP's and they made a split with the Truckfighters known as The Fuzzsplit Of The Century. Unfortunately they quit a couple of years ago. 

"Firestone is a five piece band that hail from Orebro, Sweden. They describe their music as a combination of stoner and "rock n' go", which seems to fit the bill here. At times they are similiar in sound to Monster Magnet, Solarized and fellow Swedes Generous Maria.
The lineup is Andreas Will on drums, Kristina Johansson on bass and Oskar Cedermalm and Andreas Sonerlid both playing fuzzed-out guitars. Rounding out the band is Mathias Gustaffson on vocals. They have been together about three years and were a support act for Alice Cooper on the Monsters of the Millenium tour in May 2001 in Sweden which also included Dio and Ratt."
