Rockslaget was the biggest local music competition in Gothenburg, Sweden. It was supposed to have been a small musical contest but more than 120 bands were entering every year. The event was founded by Peter Ohlsson on ABF where he wanted to give the local acts a chance to play live on a professional stage, with professional sound and light in front of a large audience. 6 of the approx 120 bands were sorted out and those went on the grand final at the Lisebergshallen. After a few years the event changed name to ‘Goteborgstalangen’ as the event had grown and the contest were so much more than just rock. Many Gothenburg metal acts have started their careers at this competition like Hammerfall, Dark Tranquility, Road Ratt, Freak Kitchen, Million etc. At 4 occasions the 6 bands that got to the final also got a chance to record two of their tracks for a local compilation album bearing the same name as the event. This happened at the 1990, 1991, 1993 and 1994 finals. This is one of those rare compilation albums that only were sold locally. On the 1990 album you’ll find the hard rock acts Road Ratt, Snappy Cacky, Million, Big Break and Ministrels Of Marble. All tracks are exclusive and none of the Road Ratt or Million tracks was released on their later albums.
