The first part of the job is done. The concert is now recorded on film and at the very last minute we got the audio recording to work as well. However it's now that the real work starts. To go through the material we have on film which also includes stuff from the tour and of course mixing the music is part of the process as well. Last but not least we would like to show our appreciation to Johnny and the crew for working long hours, keeping their spirits high and still be able to smile at the end of the day. Thank you!

“…It turns out that “this one” is a quite marvellous “Pages” which, in common with just about everything else in this magnificent 75 minutes, is incredible. Much of it – including the aforementioned tune, is from their new “HFMC” record, and although it only came out this year, it has that timeless, classic quality that only the best Prog Rock has. Almost flawless, it is the stone-cold stunning “Something Worth Dying For” that really shines. Froberg and fellow guitarist Anton Lindsjo meshing superbly and trading licks just for the fun of it.” (Maximum Volume Music, UK)

“As the sound of the sonorous ticking of a clock fills the room, I am transported once more to a murky Sunday night in London. Downstairs in The Underworld, the lights go down, Hasse Fröberg and Musical Companion take to the stage, and those of us who are fortunate enough to be gathered there are treated to an experience of such exquisite virtuosity, passionate commitment and joyful dedication to musical expression that I doubt (and most sincerely hope) that it will ever be forgotten “ (Progradar, UK)

“The show was absolutely flawless – all things at their places, all that sharp-cut details are on air, the band at the peak of its form. And the very same warm and beautiful voice... HFMC sounds extremely solid and powerful now, with some sort of easiness and inspiration, when you don’t need to think about notes, chords and so on. The Companions is an amazing live band” (InRock, Rus)

Genius - music video release

We chose this day for the premiere of the video to Genius since it would have been Freddies birthday today. This film was once again filmed and directed by Thomas Schon and Kicki Holmén. Genius is taken from the 2015 release HFMC on Glassville Records.

Can't stop the clock

2015-02-27
We are very proud to announce that "Classic Rock goes Prog" will be the first to exclusively show our brand new video to the song "Can't stop the clock". The premiere was launched at 3 pm UK time today.


Can’t stop the clock is a song with drastic changes in keys, tempos, dynamics and even in styles. I mean why make things easy as we serve you progressive rock, heavy metal, arena/stadium rock, pop, ballad, hard rock and symphonic rock. The lyrics are about how we perceive time as well as a short odyssey of my life as a musician. Most of the scenes in the video were recorded at a Herrgård (a smaller version of a castle) somewhere in Sweden. I mean we’re musicians not actors, that’s why I chose to focus on the band in their right element, playing.
