Each week, we’ll collate a playlist of songs that we’re listening to at Roadburn HQ and put them into playlist form via Spotify. Not all the songs will be new, not all of them will be from artists that have played Roadburn or will in the future; consider it a glimpse into what’s inspiring us right now.

If you like what you hear, please subscribe to the playlist – we’ll be updating it regularly! Click here or see below to check out the inaugural Roadburn: Essential Sounds playlist.

When we realised that we needed someone to take charge of our weekly playlist due to coinciding vacations, we knew there were several people we could turn to for help. One that stand out for his insatiable appetite for new music would be perfect, someone who can present a little slice of their current audio passions with the same love and attention to detail that we put into the playlists. So, we asked Tomas Lindberg to step in this week.

He’s known to most as the frontman for At The Gates and Disfear, but also known to some as the enthusiastic Swedish man who is down the front, banging his head and raising his fists at many a Roadburn performance.

So, without further ado, here is a list of Tompa’s current top tunes.
