Heavy Load  


Heavy Load was one of the early successful Scandinavian metal bands, with a style that might remind one of a primitive Manowar. Their lyrics and image, strongly rooted in Viking/Norse mythology and traditions, might appear a bit dated and over-the-top nowadays, but their hard-hitting brand of anthemic power metal really hit the mark. The Wahlquist brothers are now producers and owners of Thunderload Records in Sweden, were at one point producing Veni Domine, and also were considering releasing a new album, though that was several years ago.
