We are glad to produce Freak Kitchen for the opening concert of the Ejams Festival in Digne-les-bains July 4.

Freak Kitchen's style of music is influenced by many genres besides the traditional heavy metal, ranging from jazz to pop. The band described their third album as "A corny little heavy-pop-rock-Latin-world-jazz-avant-garde-metal-blues-record straight from hell!".  The newest album "Land of the Freaks", which was released in late October 2009, features a lot of Indian inspiration and the band is also joined by the two Indian musicians V. Selvaganesh & Neyveli S Radhakrishna on several tracks.

The lyrics of Freak Kitchen often contain heavy criticism against capitalist society, conformity, racism and the attitude of huge record companies.

Frontman Mattias Eklundh is widely known as a guitarist of high technical ability, and live shows often contain parts where Eklundh plays the guitar using several foreign objects such as a vibrating dildo. Eklundh has also released three solo albums, Sensually Primitive (1996) (under the pseudonym Mr Libido), Freak Guitar (1999) and Freak Guitar - The Road Less Traveled (2004).

Don't miss this crazy fusion metal evening where the opening act will be performed by Christophe Godin's trio, Mörglbl.
