Birthed in 2006 from the remnants of earlier bands Mothercake and Half Man, Sweden's Skånska Mord (which translates roughly as "South Sweden Homicide" and was taken from a popular TV series) set about connecting the classic psych and heavy rock sounds of the 1970s to the stoner rock styles of the 1990s and beyond, skipping the 1980s altogether. As a result, its members, harmonica-wielding vocalist Jan Bengtsson, guitarists Patrik Berglin and Petter Englund, bassist Patric Carlsson, and drummer Thomas Jönsson, managed to forge a distinctive blend of Led Zeppelin, Soundgarden, Black Sabbath, Kyuss, Deep Purple, and Fu Manchu into their 2010 debut album, The Last Supper.
