Spiritual Beggars - Wonderful World

appears on Ad Astra (2000)

We've got another Swedish treat for you this week. Founded by Arch Enemy and former Carcass guitarist Micheal Amott in the early 90s, Spiritual Beggars is usually described as Stoner Metal. It's an appropriate label too, with the sound on most of their albums giving off a definite 1970's Deep Purple-esque vibe but also managing to retain a heavy edge to keep you from falling too far into the void. On top of that, there's the solos .. oh such beautiful solos!

So sit back, pour yourself a whiskey, and enjoy Wonderful World the second track from arguably their best album Ad Astra!
