VARUKERS -

Info

THE VARUKERS, originální gangsteři punk/metal crossoveru, kteří smíchali nasranou punkrockovou intenzitu s heavymetalovou zvukovou stěnou a neúprosnou baterií bicích, se dali dohromady v roce 1979 ve stejné hudební rodině, která zrodila DISCHARGE, CHAOS UK a AMEBIX. Po rozpadu v roce 1988 pak znovu obnovili činnost v roce 1993 a začali hrát d-beat. Těžko si lze představit lepší ukazatel toho, jak dobře vypilovali své spalující exploze hardcoreové zuřivosti, než fakt, že zpěvák Rat se v roce 2003 přidal k obnoveným DISCHARGE!


Stále hrdě anarchističtí, stále totálně divocí. THE VARUKERS jsou silnou připomínkou toho, že punk je na OBSCENE EXTREME 2011 daleko od smrti!!!

Bio

Initially known as The Veruccas, the band altered the spelling of their name to "The Varukers" in order to convey more aggression. When recording in the early 1980s, they were part of a broader trend known as "UK 82", Second Generation Punk, or UK Hardcore. Bands such as The Varukers, Discharge, Chaos UK, Amebix, and Charged GBH took the existing 1977-era punk sound and melded it with the incessant, heavy drumbeats and "wall of sound" distortion guitar sound of New Wave of British Heavy Metal (NWOBHM) bands such as Motörhead. The new, harder-edged style also tended to use much darker, more nihilistic, and more violent lyrics, and vocals were often shouted rather than sung.


While the Varukers split in 1988, vocalist Rat put the band back together in 1993. Stylistically their 1990s-era music resembled the traditional UK82 style. Since the band had former members of Discharge, a D-beat sound developed as time went on. The band has gone through many line-up changes over the years with the only constant member being Rat on vocals. They have recently released a retrospective CD on SOS Records.


Even with Rat splitting his time between The Varukers and Discharge, the Varukers continue to tour. They shared a headlining spot with such acts as Broken Bones, The Adicts, Vice Squad and GBH at the ill-fated British Invasion 2k6 concert festival in San Bernardino, California which ended in rioting.


They are currently writing new material for a new album.
