Welcome aboard to Lars Boquist & The 1712s, a Swedish melodic hard rock band fronted by guitarist Lars Boquist and made up of four other seasoned and massively gifted musicians who bring years of experience in the music game together to authenticate divine harmonies that transcend boundaries. Their fascination with clock times, angel numbers, and synchronicity adds a personal and mystical touch to their releases. Their sound is simply divine. When the stars align and creative forces unite, the result can be nothing short of electrifying. That’s precisely what happened when Lars Boquist & The 1712s united in 2016, forging a sonic partnership that has birthed enthralling soundscapes that shrewdly defy categorization, straddling the realms of both the fresh and the timeless.
On their mission to feed the world with epic releases, the band is back with another raw, enchanting, and emotive release dubbed “Rest of 4ever”- an outstanding raw piece that embodies the band’s signature melodic hard rock with alternative sensibilities.
The track actually features an impressive blend of rhythm and melody concocted by the blend of guitars, bass, and drums, backed by the lead vocalist’s powerful and expressive vocals, making for a well-rounded, dynamic sound.
The heavy chorus at the track’s core makes this an addictive banger, and I love how as the track progresses, the band unleashes that timeless medley of the massive riffs, the pounding drums, and the insane bass licks, radiating such uncontainable yet ear-gracing instrumentation.
This unique sound, intimate and heartfelt performances, and instrumental and songwriting dexterity, where each member gets a chance to showcase their artistic prowess, round out this performance, providing a breath of fresh air in eclectic metal rock.
