I’ll be back in town for some days, for arranging this concert and probably a food not bombs dinner on the 16.09. ;-)FB-Event
Dense walls of guitar sounds and the ethereal vocals of bass player Lea Sonnek – the comparison with Sonic Youth suggests itself, shoegaze elements are also undeniable. But this doesn’t quite describe it all: the music of the Graz-based quartet also draws inspiration from various post-rock acts of the 1990s, as can be deduced from song lengths beyond seven minutes and cunning drum beats. For years, Hella Comet have been developing their very own language, before their debut album “Celebrate Your Loss” was released in 2010 on Pumpkin Records, followed by a 10″ on Noise Appeal Records in 2011. In October this year they releasing a new full length LP.
(also compareable to our local heroes Coma Stereo, but with a female vocalist)

Formed in Summer 2011 in Halle/Leipzig. The members are Axel W. (Drums), Benjamin B. (Bass) and Florian C. (Guitar) also known as Xeming. Their music is influenced by Psychedelic Rock, Metal, Doom, Stoner, Space Rock, Prog, Jazz and Blues.
The name relates to the series “Riget” by Lars von Trier. The “Swedenborg Raum” was described by a swedish philosopher named Emanuel Swedenborg (1688 – 1772), as a space between this world and the afterworld.

But without Petro, he wasn’t allowed to leave the country, as the tram-company of Leipzig pressed charges against him for not buying/paying a ticket, public-transport should be for free… We’re happy to welcome him this time! )
