Linnéa Olsson's MAGGOT HEART is back with their sophomore album, which will be released on Linnéa's brand new label RAPID EYE RECORDS. The Swedish guitarist/singer/songwriter, based in Berlin since 2012, has made her band a much talked about force in the underground over the last few years with their extensive touring (alongside EARTHLESS and VOIVOD among others), cross-over hard rock sound, and punk ethos.
The city as a throbbing organism is one of the fundemental themes of MAGGOT HEART, explored on several songs on "City Girls" (2017) and "Dusk to Dusk" (2018). On "Mercy Machine" (2020) the machinery of night runs on the steam of many bodies. Locked inside a prison of flesh, the spirit cannot soar - only in unity with the body will divine alchemy be achieved. "Mercy Machine" is a ferocious rock album about sex, death and the pursuit of freedom.
