The video for technical metal veterans Meshuggah’s new single Clockworks is miiiighty impressive, marrying the band’s Gigeresque art/aesthetic to dynamic, moving, fractal art courtesy of Dutch visual effects maestro Julius Horsthuis.

Clockworks is from the band’s new album The Violent Sleep of Reason, out now via Nuclear Blast Records.

Tommy Tropp and Friends – Balls On Fire: Vi bär fram Sverige

I’m a Swede who lives in Dublin since 2012. Me and a few of my friends have written a Euro Cup song (above) for the Swedish team. We might be rivals in the group stage but only for one game :-).

Update:

Those controversial lyrics translated…

Balls On Fire – Vi bär fram Sverige (We carry Sweden forward,):

Once again we’re getting ready
With this, the national team’s tribute song
A team who fights through thick and thin
Will bring victory to our fortress

With Zlatan as our guide
He’ll show the way with his global class
Soon winds approach with the flavour of final
We’ll stand topmost in the hall of the kings

Now we’re chanting for our blue and yellow squad…

We carry Sweden forward
Our Sweden – to triumph in this summer’s fight
We carry Sweden forward
Our Sweden – when the dream is true we have peace

We look to the future but remember nighty-four
Great old days and conquests
Embrace equal parts finesse and strength
Becoming heroes we will worship

From all the cities of Sweden we dress up in blue and yellow
It’s the Euros, it’s party, we’re the loudest of fans
What a squad, what a lot – which teams will get smashed (Ireland, Italy, Belgium)
The blue and yellow eleven who give all Sweden hope
With Isak furthest and Zlatan up front

We carry Sweden forward
Our Sweden – to triumph in this summer’s fight
We carry Sweden forward
Our Sweden – when the dream is true we have peace

We carry Sweden forward
Our Sweden – to triumph in this summer’s fight
We carry Sweden forward
Our Sweden – when the dream is true we have peace

We carry Sweden forward
Our Sweden – to the gold who will be ours
We carry Sweden forward
Our Sweden – in July we have made something big

Goddamn.

It’s so catchy.

Fight!

As I’m sure you all know we are just around the corner from Ireland’s first game in France, and with that in mind, we want to share the very first of the Life Style Sports #FootbALLorNothing Fan Guides. Up first, we have the beautiful Swedes!

Sweden-based Irish journalist Philip O’Connor writes:

I asked Louise Quinn [Ireland international currently playing with Eskilstuna United] who could win the Swedish title and qualify for the Champions League today, whether she would rather win the Swedish League or qualify for the Euros with Ireland – her answer (above) is brilliant…
