“It’s a short and simple story: I got fed up with the big productions and long sound checks that comes with Cult of Luna. So, it¹s back to the roots of my salad days in Umeå. It is time to make it simple, raw and fast. This is hardcore.
I decided to write 14 songs in 14 days inspired by the bands I worshiped as vegan straight edge punk kid: Judge, Battery, Integrity, ACME and Damnation AD. The concept is to not spend 1 000 days in the studio and nitpick over every drumbeat and production details. The musical destruction has to be alive and direct, tailor-made to induce mosh mayhem and walls of death.
I hooked up with Fredrik and Christian, both with a past in the crust/grind terror force Totalt Jävla Mörker. One rehearsal sealed the deal and we recorded three tracks in one night about to be released as a 10” vinyl on the Norwegian metal label Indie Recordings.
Adding guitar player Marita and bass player Christoffer 138 (DS-13, AC4, Epileptic Terror Attack, Sonic Ritual etc) the lineup was complete. And thus, we are ready to slam dance all over the world.
Are you ready? Tonight we ride!”
