MALCONTENT

Continuing with the flood of Swedish d-beat I reach out for an expert label on new and less known Swedish bands – Phobia Records. MALCONTENT is made up of members from Dissekerad, Makabert Fynd, Avskum, Kakafoni, The Nature and Hellkontroll, so we are talking credentials here. This EP is their… Keep Reading

FORGIFTAD

FÖRGIFTAD – Bränd Generation 7”EP

  A 2017 release from Swedish punk d-beaters FÖRGIFTAD, which still makes it their last one. The trio shares members with Kronisk Misantropi or Makabert Fynd, so you know there is no cheating here. Although, there is. It starts with a telephone conversation in Swedish when suddenly the name Bolt… Keep Reading

RÖVSVETT

RÖVSVETT ‎– Bly, Skrot & Hagel 7”

  We haven’t heard a proper full-length from these Swedish hardcore legends since 2008. Instead, they occasionally throw a few EPs in our way, two of them being released in 2018: the split with BRISTLES and this one.  However, a new LP is already in the pressing plant, entitled “Den… Keep Reading

(review) FREDAG DEN 13:E – Dystopisk Utsikt LP

  Progenitors of the melodic crust, TRAGEDY, have become inspiration to numerous bands all over the world, thus laying grounds for what later evolved into what we call neo crust in some circles. It has found its followers in bands like MYTERI, DESZCZ and FREDAG DEN 13:E from Gothenburg. “Dystopisk… Keep Reading

SMIERC

(review) SMIERC – Godzina Pusta LP

  OK, so I’ve saved myself from a monumental fuck up concerning this band and the review. I received this LP a few weeks ago from NIKT NIC NIE WIE and was instantly surprised I knew nothing about a band from Poland, called SMIERC. So I gave it a spin… Keep Reading

(review) SUFFER THE PAIN – Midnight Sacrifice LP

  When I first played this record a year ago or so I was put off by everything I heard on it.  But then I rediscovered it and since then I cannot stop playing it.  This band from Västerås, Sweden have already managed to release another LP on their own… Keep Reading

KORSFÄST - “Skarpt Läge”

(review) KORSFÄST – “Skarpt Läge” 12”EP

  Fucking hell, this is brilliant.  When your punk CV includes playing in bands like MOB 47, PROTES BENGT, DESPERAT, DISCARD and DRILLER KILLER, then your new formation must be a killer.  And it is.  Take a bite off each mentioned bands and you end up with the best things… Keep Reading

ANATOMI 71 - Människor Som Medel

(review) ANATOMI 71 – Människor Som Medel 12”EP

  ANATOMI 71 are from Gothenburg, Sweden and play what we all call Swedish style old school d-beat punk but once you play it you can’t resist hearing heavy Motorhead influences here and there.  Which is good.  Bass driven punk rock + d-beat drums is always a good recipe for… Keep Reading

SubAlert

(review) Sub Alert – Obekväma Människor EP

If you see 8 tracks on a 7”EP and the address is Sweden you know what to expect.  It’s a hardcore blast, with maniac vocals, heavy guitar and swedish style solos.  Anti-Cimex here, MOB47 there, a splash of PROTEST BENGT.  Mixed by Kenko from DISCHANGE/MEANWHILE.  Good references and very good… Keep Reading
