And following up the kind reviews they released their CD EP “Unleashed” in february 2006. “Five Smell City” shows off the high energy rock ‘n’ roll that has already become Marvel’s trademark. Guided by bands such as Kiss and The Stooges, this young bunch of untamed riff masters with a genuine feel for the groove have already managed to manifest their world domination program. Marvel carelessly avoids all rock clichés known to man so you won’t find any songs about cars, beer and babes. Instead you’ll get to know super heroes with broken hearts, a weather goddess and how small town madness influences the success of a young hungry rock band stuck in a city of five smells.
And of course a song about a Swedish tennis star that has had problems finding a decent occupation since he put his racket to rest. On “UNLEASHED” Marvel have devoted themself to render six brilliant yet wildly diverse songs by other artists (aka covers) into their trademark style of rock 'n roll. Apparently the biggest radio network in Sweden like these superheroes too since no less than three songs from the debute album have been playlisted so far. “Now I Believe It” was the latest one during late summer 2005. “Now I Believe It” was also noticed by the Swedish TV-show Musikbyrån which is the one show with most influence and “strength” in Sweden. They showed MARVELs “Now I Believe It”-video on their website during a three week period. The trio left Keith, their previous manager, in the end of a long and moderately warm summer 2005 due to strange and abnormal eating habits and they turned to Papa Bear at HOMBRE Productions Inc.
for spiritual guidance and Tattoo Powers and Original Outlaw Advertising. The rest my friends is history. Less than a day after the release of UNLEASHED!, the web version (P3 Rock) of P3 aired the first track from it and kept doing so. The radioshow Rundgång also at the same time celebrated the band as "the pride of Östgötaslätten". Not bad. Our heroes spend their days playing videogames and helping old ladies across the street awaiting world domination and a lifelong quest of fighting evil and the henchmen that follows in the shadows.
And once in a while they drop what they do to enter the recording studio, sometimes naked, to get the work done. Right now the new album "Thunderblood Heart" is slowly growing into what in the future might be called the Cornerstone of pure Rock. The single "I Wanna Know You" will soon reach the ears of many people as well as the swet from the video made for it, that strange night in Göteborg, Sweden. It was released on October 29th, 2007.
