Hedvig Mollestad Profiled

I began considering the music of ferocious Norwegian guitarist Hedvig Mollestad, whose aggressive instrumental trio evokes Jimi Hendrix, John McLaughlin, Black Sabbath’s Tony Iommi, and the earliest work of fellow Norwegian Terje Rypdal. It’s heavy shit, but woven into the massive distorted riffs and stomping grooves is some serious improvisation.
