Radio Chatter with Johannes Eckerström from Avatar

The new Avatar album "Avatar Country" is out now and it's a really interesting listen. If you're into hard music, there's something for you on this record. At the beginning of our conversation we talked a little pro wrestler.  Johannes gave me a brief history of Swedish music, there's some heavy stuff that comes out of there outside of ABBA. We talked about the theatrics of the band and a funny Spinal Tap moment, and what pop artist inspired him. Plus, what drives him, how much success in America means to the band, and more.

Johannes is a real interesting guy. This is a cool conversation.

If you're in the Detroit area, you can see them at Saint Andres Hall on February 7th.
