Discovery: Alexander Halling

My Cage is the second single from Swedish rocker Alexander Halling’s latest EP, with the song having a rather distinctive sound to it.

By Jane Howkins

Alexander describes his music as being a mixture of Iron Maiden and Mark Knopfler, which is a fairly accurate description. It’s heavy and the riffs are very metal, but the clean guitar melodies also have a more traditional rock/blues sound to them, mixing together nicely. It’s an instrumental piece, but when the music is this stunning, it doesn’t really need any vocals!
