With his latest solo effort, Västra Götaland County, Sweden’s ETT TURBULENT LIV forces the listener to re-examine screamo and post rock music status quo while taking another giant stride as a one man band. Combining depressive and atmospheric depths and counteracting them with fierce forces and tensions, the record sounds utterly refreshing and promises a healthy future for Vile. Only if he hasn’t decided to take the title of this record in a very literal way.
