Questions to BJÖRN LODIN

L’histoire débute en Hongrie en 2004. Après deux albums bien reçus, le groupe HARD décide de passer à l’international en délivrant des textes en anglais. Quelques changements de line-up, des articles dans la presse spécialisée (Metal Hammer, Burrn !...), des chroniques à travers le monde jusqu’aux USA changent la destinée de HARD : Beau Hill (Winger/Ratt/Warrant) souhaite remixer quelques-uns de leurs titres et le suédois Björn Lodin (Baltimore - chanteur, guitariste et producteur) rejoint les rangs en mai 2009.

At first, can you introduce yourself and tell us in few words  your own career ?

I'm Björn Lodin, and I've been in this business professionally since 1982. I dreamed about being a rock star when I was a kid and I still have that dream... I started out my career in a band called SIX FEET UNDER, and after that I started my own band BALTIMOORE.  Now I am in HARD and looks like I'll be here for a while :)

What are your own favorite styles and  influences?

I grew up with Deep Purple/Led Zeppelin/AcDc... those albums are still my favorite rock albums. I prefer jazz on my spare time.  

Which artist you work with or you worked with impress(ed) you the most ? 

Many. In BALTIMOORE I've worked with many great and inspiring musicians... Thomas Larsson, Ian Haughland, Nikolo Kotzev to name a few. 
Still so many great players over the years... and counting.

What about your promotion work and your relation with press at the moment ? Do you get a good feed back about your new album ?

Mostly good and constructive feedback. Of course there are some "journalists" pretending they know 'a thing or two about a thing or two' - that is totally wacko... I guess they can't help themselves... I know I can't... But most press seems to understand we've done and what we're trying to do.

What’s the mood of it ? What would you say to make people listen to it and buy it ?

The mood is: good, bad, soft, hard, black & white. People shouldn't analyse the fucking thing to death... crank the volume and move with it. We're not re-inventing the wheel -  we just try to give you a smooth ride :)

Where do you find your inspiration for music and lyrics ?

Everywhere and anywhere - this is not brain surgery... we just do it! Inspiration comes out of discipline.

What’s your favorite new track ? Why ?

I like all my little babies... they're all my 1st choice. Sorry for the boring answer :(

Do you think you will bring something new in music with your new cd ?

No, but I'm sure we bring back some memories... I think we represent a style that is somewhat "out of style" and I'm sure a lot of people have missed it.

Will you be touring soon and what can the audience expect from you on stage ?

Yes, we're putting a tour together now and I know Gabor, our bass player, wants to be barefoot on stage ;)

I wish you a big success with your new album !

And i thank you for this HEAVY SOUND SYSTEM interview !

You're welcome!


Try to stay happy :)
