FAILURE - I Can't Skate


There can never be enough fastcore/power violence bands at Obscene Extreme Festival! They are the adored backbone of the line-up each year, and young Italian band, FAILURE, is fit to take on the challenge. They pump out a solid portion of fast-paced fastcore blended with traditional power violence fundamentals characterised by tempo changes, breakdowns and incredibly fast riff changes.

They are destined to be the icing on the cake for all the fastcore and grindcore fans. Going by their debut 7“, and a joint 10“ split with Ona Snop from England, which is a band of the same brood, we can look forward to having FAILURE at OEF 2020!!!


Failure started in mid 2017 as a side project of Los and Steve from Ape Unit, who wanted to put togheter some songs of twisted fastcore/powerviolence stuff with some classic hardcore vibes; after recruiting Dave on guitar the band started writing their first 7”, which saw the light of day later that year. In the meantime, we embarked on a spree of gigs around Italy and the rest of Europe, having the chance to play with incredible bands on outstanding stages such as Fluff Fest and Go Fest, between the others. In 2019, after a not-so-hidden love story we released a split with Ona Snop from UK, and keep on playing around, being also part of ChimpyFest 2019 and Tinnitus Fastival, among other things. After a minitour in Germany we had a small line-up change as Dave decided to took part from the band. The band is actually writing new material for an upcoming release coming out in the first half on 2020, hopefully just before the first full european tour that will head to OEF!
