It's been a good year for Heavy Load news as we previously revealed in our interview with Eddy Malm and Styrbjörn Wahlquist back in August. First off, the news that there 'might' be some shows with the defunct band, and secondly that there will be re-releases of their albums. Fans of this classic Swedish heavy metal band had been waiting year after year and festival announcement after festival announcement for rumours to finally come true. And this October they did; Heavy Load are to play re-union shows at the esteemed festivals Keep It True and Up The Hammers.
In our interview with Malm and Wahlquist, they revealed that the re-releases are going to be issued by No Remorse Records (in conjunction with the Wahlquist brother's label Thunderload Records).
