History

Dogpound was originally called Frozen Miffo - a name Tuka took from a Modest Attraction album by Tuka - when it came together as a band in The Nordic School Of Rock Music in Munkfors, Sweden in 1999. Micke, Figge and Hea already operated a covers band. Two demos were recorded. The name was changed in 2000, but with the members drifting away, a deal with Shark Records falling through in 2001 and leader Micke busying himself with Candela things soon slowed down. A deal was also signed with Z Records, but nothing transpired. The boys persevered in 2003 and recorded a Gary Moore cover at Abyss Studio which featured Hypocrisy's Peter TÃĪgtgren on vocals! The song appeared on Lion Music's Give Us Moore. The band issued its debut for Lion Music in 2004.

Reviews

DOGPOUND - THE HELLBUM - LION
Contrary to the band's name Dogpound's The hellbum is not a ferocious or raucous album. In fact, the Swedish hard rockers present some rather inoffensive rock and hard rock with this album. The band's singer, somehow called Hea, has a pedestrian and indistinct voice. He is not bad, but at the same time his personality does not exactly shine though the tracks. The guitar does have an edge and the rhythm and the solos are solid and competent. The bass guitar is present and the drumming OK, but again nothing wild. Dogpound occupies the same category as Tesla, Galactic Cowboys or Ugly Kid Joe. This is not a direct musical comparison, but rather an analogy for review purposes. What is really cause for questioning is the album's artwork. The lyric sheet's clip art looks like just that. It seems the band had a fun time going through its WordPerfect clip art collection. The Hellbum is neither bad nor good. - Ali "The Metallian"
