Enigma Experience is the new band featuring Mr Dango from legendary Swedish Fuzz/Desert/Stoner Rockers - Truckfighters. Mr Dango teams up with former Truckfighters / Witchcraft drummer Oscar “Pezo” Johansson and Maurice Adams from Breed and former Motorfinger on vocals.

Question Mark is their debut album and sees Mr Dango joining his world famous and fast-paced delicious Fuzz/Stoner Rock grooves with the dark and vivid imagery of the Grunge Scene with bands such as Soundgarden and Alice In Chains being a deep influence on the entire album. This allows the album to achieve the perfect balance of sounds that ruled the roost in the 1990’s and merged with the killer modern day Desert Rock, Fuzz and Stoner Rock grooves. 

The album is fast-paced from start to finish with Enigma Experience living up to their name wiith their winning blend of different sounds whilst retaining a familiar vibe and flow which should keep listeners entertained and intrigued throughout the album. The different vocal harmonies and performances from Mr Dango and Mr Adams are bang on point and compliment each other really well especially on the later stages of the album.

The music is perhaps the strongest part of the album with the multitude of different rifffs the band play on the album. One moment you’re treated to a grungy atmosphere and the next the band move bang up to the modern day and play some epic riffs you would expect on a Truckfighters album. The lyrics are quite dark in places and are vastly different ot the other bands the members have been or currently part of.

The early songs of Realityline, Lonewolf and Mighty Mind show that Enigma Experience have a rebellious streak running through their veins but there is still an addictive sense of fun that you cannot ignore especially when the heavier FUZZIER vibes fully take over.

This album could have easily ended up as a solo project for Mr Dango as he produced, mixed, mastered and engineered the album. However, by the end of the record you feel that everyone has played an equal part in performing on this record and allow you to feel that Enigma Experience is worth taking and respecting on their own convictions.

Question Mark is expertly produced and played by everyone involved with the second half of the album perhaps being the more well-rounded part of the album especially with songs such as: Corruption, In My Mind My Secret Place and The Zone leading the way.

So overall, Question Mark is a mighty fine record with a ton of great ideas that will appeal to fans across the Hard Rock/Metal scene. 

Great stuff.
