about

To hear Truckfighters’ music, is to hear the sounds of the desert. It’s in their wide open ex-panse, it’s in their grand open groove and dust-caked metal riffs. You can hear progression and imagination. This is a band bred on the California bad lands, on sprawling vistas and parched wilderness. There is just one thing. They’re from Sweden. “We have the exact opposite weather and landscape to California,” says the band’s guitarist Niklas ‘Dango’ Källgren. “But there is a wilderness there, so I think we share something with people who make music in desert landscapes: we both do it in places where there aren’t many people around. Maybe that’s why we can tap into those sounds. You can create big empty spaces in music whether you are in the California desert or whether you are in Sweden.” These are sounds that they have been making since Niklas teamed up with bassist and vocalist Oskar ‘Ozo’ Cedermalm in Orebro, Sweden in 2001. A succession of drummers have come and gone – “We have a very Spinal Tap relationship with drummers,” says Niklas, but now the powerhouse playing of Axel ‘Enzo’ Larsson drives their groove. Over the course of five EPs and four full-length albums, they have honed, tautened and ex-panded their sound, moving from out-and-out riffing to more melodic, crafted songwriting. Yet, inherent in everything is the fuzzed-out mania that defines them. “That fuzz is the sound in my head that I want to get out,” says Niklas. “The new record just has more of everything we’ve ever done. It’s melodic and groovy but very progressive too. The songwriting’s better.” That new record was forged from jams that the band then worked hard to convert into songs. Importantly, they say they have never attempted to write to a style. Instead, their songs come from the heart. All that hard work led to the release of “Universe” Jan 2014!

Track Name: Mind control
Mind control

I couldn’t change my mind
please use your mind control

You will only seek to find
a black and empty hole

I’ve heard of a chip installed
In those brains of yours

they only improves the sleep
maybe just to keep them cheap


Could you lay your hands
inside the arms of your fans
Run away from mind control


I really think there are
many people out too far

would really need to be
in the shipment out to sea

you can make it all go away
but it need the leaders to say

this won’t be need no more
gotta stop to just ignore

Could you lay your hands
inside the arms of your fans
Run away from mind control

Could you lay your hands
inside the arms of your fans
Run away from your self
That puts you in the control
Track Name: The Chairman
The Chairman

Resignation of the chairman is routine
the scandal that surrounds him makes it impossible
there is nothing that can get him clean
he will wash his fingers until they will bleed

Run away from his past
gotta know, there’s nothing that will last

I don’t see why the deal must be abused
His mind probably got fused
Leaders do tend to use their powers so wrong
Hey there people stay strong


The scandal has delt a devastating
blow to their firm
it seems no one can admit it
(the) money makes you a germ

Something has gone very wrong
do you know to whom it belong
they will suffer from the loss of funds
mandatory code of breaking laws

We will go outside the system failed
to nail us all at once
we will rule the planet from today
no matter what you say

by the lord
they get floored


Make your vote
for me I will entrust
your money and your life
you can not leave my boat
until you die

The scandal has delt a devastating
blow to their firm
it seems no one can admit it
(the) money makes you a germ


Make your vote
for me I will entrust
your money and your life
you can not leave my boat
until you die…
until you die….
Get me down is all there is to you
I’m just a man you knew
And now I’m dead....



(The) chairman is
like a decease
run from pole
pole to pole
like a tick
he is sick
has no cause in this world

running from
(the) days that where
best in life
with a knife
on his neck
(from) all the ones


The scandal has delt a devastating
blow to their firm
it seems no one can admit it
(the) money makes you a germ


The scandal has delt a devastating
blow to their firm
it seems no one can admit it
(the) money makes you a germ
Track Name: Prophet
The Prophet

It has to place
some kind of bug inside his strange and twisted brain
protest against
something that should had make your glad and smile again

Flying away
Follow me ‘til end will be closer by
This is the day
Moving closer, only choice that i will die
got to run far away from hollow, please let him go

the people that
making fun of my imaginary friend
you will not draw
the picture of him I will go above the law
This is a crime, no I am serious please just look at me now,

Flying away
Follow me ‘til end will be closer by
This is the day
Moving closer, only choice that i will die
got to run far away from hollow, please let him go

Flying away
Follow me ‘til end will be closer by
This is the day
Moving closer, only choice that i will die
got to run far away from hollow, please let him go
let him go
Track Name: Get lifted
Get lifted

He trained his mind to lie
Everything he says
I can’t buy

He’s mind is coloured
by to much in the past

I see you in the corner
you painted all the way
all you can do is stay

Crying out to get lifted
Isn’t that the only way
to live
isn’t that what you feel

The beatiful soul that dies
nothing will be ever lasting, life....

------

The feeling of elation is near
why can’t you get there without it
is this somehow that you might fear

lost on a vouge
in the end of space

Hope to find a way out of this mess

why is this for real
looking for a better deal
don’t know which god you beleive in
fail to act when your son is bleeding
come back and share with your shine
please god,just send him a sign
the don’t will be stearing your wheels
someday everything will be revealed


Ohh lord just give him a path to go
much more than the smoke that gives him flow
I realize it might be to much
but I find it to be important here
let us all share a tear


don’t know which god you beleive in
fail to act when your son is bleeding
the dope will be stearing your wheels
real life, how does it feels?
why is this for real
looking for a better deal

Track Name: Convention
Convention

They heralded a new plan over the weekend
to end the crisis that was their lives
but on the ground the violence will survive
The hope of the people was plunging by a dagger

Express the optimism by the new agreement
The inner circle and the president will be exlcuded

Afraid that the decision of the Geneva convention might
give em signs and gestures it’s ok

This will give the leaders permit to kill
Track Name: Dream sale
Dream sale

Follow the stream that goes
lightway to fame
I said it’s not even close
to the happiness that you could feel

Going around, around the corners in life that makes it so hard to live

When you get older you think
is there something you missed
Then it’s to late to regret
it will only make you go pissed

Going around, around the corners in life that makes it so hard to live

Selling the dreams
show them their lives
then kill the people
slowly until they will fly

It makes the soul that we are
travel the road even far
sometimes the hard way to do
things that was meant for you

Going around, around the corners in life that make’s it so hard to live

Selling the dreams
show them their lives
then kill the people
slowly until they will fly

Selling the dreams
show them their lives
then kill the people
slowly until they will fly
Track Name: Mastodont
Mastodont

I never thought that I could
Leave this path and go
changed my course for what I could do
seems like every day

When the story begins to fade
It’s all in the past
I couldn’t keep you away from my blade
(But) we will have a blast

Taking this road
leads to the way of the light
Give me the code
to the things that you kept from me
It’s better to die
when you know that you tried so hard
you are the star that will glow in the dark...
The same as me

My only hope is that he will fold
The darkness and go
Cure my sole and move the cold, out of here
It goes away so slow
From the lead of the line

Taking this road
leads to the way of the light
Give me the code
to the things that you kept from me
It’s better to die
when you know that you tried so hard
you are the star that will glow in the dark...
The same as me

doors will not be closed
Shine on this piece
That you one once composed
Leave your thoughts
Finally some peace in my mind
Before you decease

Taking this road
Leads to the way of the light
Give me the code
things that you kept from me
It’s better to die
know that you tried so hard
you are the star that will glow in the dark...
The same as me
