Swedish fuzz rock outfit Guenna launch the pre-order for their debut album!

"Peak of Jin’Arrah"; the debut album by Guenna, can now be pre-ordered! Hailing from the southernmost part of Sweden, this 4 piece offers a thrilling take on fuzzy, progressive and heavy rock with vocal harmonies, perhaps described best by Nick Oliveri during a night when Guenna opened up for his band Stöner in Malmö; “Guenna sound like if YES played heavy stoner music, with all the harmonies and stuff. And I mean the good part of YES! It’s fucking rad!”

"Peak of Jin’Arrah" offers 8 new tracks recorded in Tambourine Studios, Malmö. The album is released on the 19th of April and will be available on 300 copies on black vinyl and 200 copies on transparent green vinyl. The album will also be available on most digital platforms.

“The completion of this album has been a much bigger project than we had initially prepared for and it has been clear that we have not done anything of this magnitude before. But FINALLY after many months of work, we now have a record that we are incredibly proud to be able to share.Though each member in the band has their own way of writing music and concepts for songs, we all have a shared affinity for adventure, sci-fi and the mythical unknown. That is something that heavily influences our creative process from beginning to end. Several songs has started as a concept before a single note has even been written. Ideas and musical motifs are usually written individually, presented infront of the band and then, as a group, we build, write, and arrange concepts, themes, and storys together."

Guenna are four guys who met when they studied music together in 2018/2019. After they all realized they miss cranking their amps and smashing the drumheads with raw power, Robert suggested starting a stoner band! While Robert were newly in love with stoner rock, his and Albin’s top three list of bands both included AC/DC and Black Sabbath, while Viktor and Oskar don’t even have a top list of bands, but some of their mutual favorite bands include Rush, and Crosby, Stills & Nash. The result of their creativity and widely mixed influences became, to quote Nick Oliveri (Kyuss, QOTSA): “Guenna sound like if YES played heavy stoner music, with all the harmonies and stuff. And I mean the good part of YES! It’s fucking rad!”. Others say “Progressive Stoner Rock”.

While none of the members originally are from Malmö, Guenna is now based in Malmö, Sweden, the best geographically place in the country to connect with Europe. Guenna is ready to go intercontinental to share their art!
