This Swedish garage-punk band that faced off against the Vines on the MTV Video Music Awards in 2002 after the release of is breakthrough Veni Vidi Vicious album still sounds like it's in battle mode on Tyrannosaurus Hives. Violent songs such as "Walk Idiot Walk" and "Abra Cadaver" jerk forward in a noisy collision of surf guitars, frantic rhythms, and front man Howlin' Pelle Almquist's preposterous barks. He's part ringleader, part instigator, and the main ingredient that keeps the Hives' Nuggets-inspired retro rock from sounding as dated as its influences. Despite a few light electronic touches, the band sticks largely to formula throughout this album but by keeping the focus on its biggest assets--simplicity and volume--it comes out triumphant nonetheless. --Aidin VaziriThe Hives return to the forefront of the music scene with the blazing new album TYRANNOSAURUS HIVES. The follow up to their smash "Veni Vidi Vicious" CD which featured the worldwide hit "Hate To Say I Told You So" and was listed in Rolling Stone's Top 50 albums of the year.

With TYRANNOSAURUS HIVES the band reaches new heights and reestablishes themselves as one of the world's best rock outfits around today! "Every track on this record will be sure to make you move," said the band's Howlin' Pelle Almqvist. "It's straight from our roots - pure in your face punk."

TYRANNOSAURUS HIVES forces the world to break out from another work of pure unadulterated genius so infectious as to be unstoppable without a sucking serum, as this fivesome have once again kicked it out skillfully, magnificently and brilliantly. The sound that they display is like a velvet glove with brass knuckles, both brutal and sophisticated at the same time. Based on youth, energy and taste, The Hives are giving you PUNKROCK MUSIC AVEC KABOOM.
