VICTIMS - Walls

Info


OK, ok. It has to be repeated again. What would Obscene Extreme Festival be without a proper portion of crust? Actually, a proper portion of Swedish crust? One of the most respected crust hardcore bands hailing from Nyköping, Sweden, a band we can put next to such squads like Wolfbrigade/Wolfpack, Skitsystem, Martyrdöd, Tragedy, From Ashes Rise or Disbar.   

One of the synonyms for this style. Ladies and gentlemen, the mighty VICTIMS to perform at OEF 2017! Their latest album „Sirens“ released at Tankcrimes Records surprised by its rawness and the return to the roots. There is definitely a lot to look forward to!!!

Bio

A short biography:  

To even the most pedestrian fan of d-beat hardcore/crust punk, VICTIMS is undeniably one of the genre’s kings, their name as synonymous with the genre as Anti-Cimex, Wolfpack/Wolfbrigade, From Ashes Rise, Disfear and the like. Through an exceptionally solid but not overcrowded discography since their 1997 inception, through labels like Havoc Records, Deathwish, Tankcrimes and more the band has yielded six LPs, and a variety of EPs, having shared platters on splits with the likes of From Ashes Rise, Kylesa, and Acursed. In the eighteen years that have passed since those early days of rehearsals in Nyköping, VICTIMS has toured internationally, heavily focused on Europe and the US extensively. Along the way they’ve experienced highs and lows, seen lineup changes and personal tragedy, they’ve been robbed in Italy and hospitalized in the USA. They’ve also played with a host of great bands, touring with the likes of Coliseum, Kylesa, Trash Talk, Rotten Sound, Trap Them, Municipal Waste, Black Breath, and countless others, and undoubtedly made some life-long friendships. Today, VICTIMS stands as one of the most respected bands of the underground punk and hardcore community.
