Judas Kiss: “Of the many and various projects of Henrik ‘Nordvargr’ Björkk, Folkstorm has always been among the most aggressive, and Sweden captures Nordvargr in particularly savage form… Sweden is a powerful but daunting work – only hardcore devotees of extreme electronic noise are likely to find this music endurable for more than a brief period. You have been warned. The album’s called Sweden, but don’t expect Abba.”
Terrorizer: ‘Sweden’ is a particularly gruelling dose of electronics that offers absolutely nothing in the way of respite throughout its 50-minute entirety. Once the listener has entered, the all-encompasing wold of Folkstorm throws forth a constant battering of sound from which there is no letting up or a glimmer of hope in the shape of something less pummelling. Hunt this down and blow your mind”.
Zero Tolerance: “Folkstorm have a cool, controlled and vicious CD here, and for any noise connoisseur this is an essential addition to the collection. “
Dark Life: “…harsh and brutal noise industrial that blows your ears away in a cacophonic fury orchestrated by Nordvargr in a clearly nasty mood. Sweden is a mass of aggro-noise-industrial carrying a sharp fury that is as appealing as it is it is aggravating. Make no mistake here, Folkstorm noise approach in this album is not just self contained, it whips and seduces your ears in an unexpected way”
