'Beyond The Pale' is the second album from Swedish Wheel In The Sky. A theme album about darkness and death. An album with a twilight touch and an essence of psychedelic rock and a close to death sensation. The album contains an overflow of melody and a dark gothic energy. Tracks as 'Burn Babylon Burn' and 'The Only Dead Girl in the City' holds both epic elements as catchy pop hooks. There is a feel-good vibe and large atmosphere over the track 'Undead Love' at the same time as the very spaced out song 'Far Side of Your Mind' shows the dynamic of the Swedish group. Wheel In The Sky is obsessed with various mystical and religious imagery, obscured politics and they harbor a morbid fascination for immolations and blood sacrifice, trying hard to incorporate it all into a tasteful setting. There is a peaceful sense of death over the album that will be released the 31st of August 2018 on The Sign Records. Wheel In The Sky includes David Berlin from the hyped Swedish 90´s psych alternative rock band Mother Superior. 'Beyond the Pale' follows the band's debut album 'Heading for the Night' that was the first release from The Sign Records. 'Beyond The Pale' was recorded during a period of 4 months. Wheel In The Sky was on an impossible quest to combine polar rock opposites. AOR walk hand in hand with Garage Rock, Mike Oldfield caught in a love triangle with Patti Smith and Stevie Nicks, Joy Division and Sniff'n the Tears stumbling home together in the dead of night. The band is based in Uppsala Sweden, a city that has provided sincere rock acts as In Solitude, Watain and Misery Loves Co in the past. Wheel In The Sky is the next chapter, zeroing in on death as a case study.

Press Quotes

...there are going to be people who really, really dig this album, and I've got no argument with them.

Not too dirty and not too sterile, actually quite perfect.... 7/10

     —Metal Norge (translated), http://www.metal-norge.com/?p=review&id=8469

This is a great guitar album that conjures the spirit of 1975-76 rock. In particular, it echoes the sound of Wishbone Ash and The Who.

     —Soundblab, https://soundblab.com/reviews/albums/20651-wheel-i

Fazit: Im Spirit von vielen Frühhasen wurde alles drauf und dran gesetzt, um ja viel Eigenständigkeit walten zu lassen. Das ist gelungen und genau deshalb klingt „Beyond The Pale' prächtig eingespielt.

     —Metalunderground, http://www.metalunderground.at/cd-berichte/wheel-i

A psychedelic masterpiece from Swedish rockers bringing everyone to their knees while the guitar is on fire once again.

     —Overdrive, https://overdrive-mag.com/2018/08/25/review-wheel-

Fans of rock music but especially fans of the 60s/70s rock, keep an eye on these guys and get the album. You will love it!

The dark gothic energy promised shines through no matter the pace of the song.

     —Games, Brrraaains & A Head-Banging Life, https://gbhbl.com/album-review-wheel-in-the-sky-be

Om du søker reinspikka retrorock blir du nok skuffet, men liker du god rock n' roll med et litt bredere nedslagsfelt, så er det versågod og forsyne seg.

     —Metal Norge, http://www.metal-norge.com/?p=review&id=8469

'Beyond The Pale' is simply a well performed and very attractive album which shows a band growing better by the album.

     —Lords of Metal, http://www.lordsofmetal.nl/en/reviews/view/id/3753

Klar ist das noch klassischer Rock, aber er klingt just so aktuell, wie es sein muss, wenn man über temporäre Trends erhaben sein möchte. Gekommen, um zu bleiben? Absolut.

     —Musikreviews.de, http://www.musikreviews.de/reviews/2018/Wheel-In-T

„Burn Babylon, Burn!' ist sehr wuchtig und eindringlich. Ein Hit, in der Tat. Auch sehr gut: Der Horror-Soundtrack-Versuch auf „Afterglow'. Die Abschlussnummer „The Weight Of The Night' gerät episch und bietet verschiedenste Stimmungen.

     —Reverb Is For Lovers , http://reverbisforlovers.com/review-wheel-in-the-s

Un'opera che ricorda il rock dei primi BÖC, con venature di New York rock pre-punk (The Dictators/Patti Smith), ombroso e pure solare come il rock australiano e il Paisley, di psichedelia intriso, pronto a sfrecciare sonicamente verso il terzo occhio del

     —IYEZINE, https://www.iyezine.com/wheel-in-the-sky-beyond-th

It's music for knocking back drinks, having a little dance, and generally having a grand old time with your best buddies (and new friends, too).

     —The Sound Not The Word, https://thesoundnottheword.com/2018/08/27/august-2

Wheel in the Sky wissen durch die Rückbezüge auf die Bands aus den 80er Jahren Stimmungen und Erinnerungen zu erzeugen, die sie durch ihre eigene Spielweise bereichern.

     —SchwarzesBayern.de, http://schwarzesbayern.info/cd-wheel-in-the-sky-be

It's talk about a sound pallet of psychedelic rock, a overflow of melody and a dark gothic energy. But there's also epic elements and catchy pop hooks.
