RATTUS Finland

RATTUS - Sokea Sosiaalisesti


This might be the oldest band ever to play at the OEF. The Finnish hardcore punkers called RATTUS mark 1978 as the year of inception!!! And nowadays they are undoubtedly the best-known name of the Scandinavian hardcore punk scene. Indeed, their first big album "Rattus on Rautaa" came out in 1981. After years of success, however, RATTUS broke up and in 1988 they became silent to reunite in 2001. 

They have been working intensively since including concerts around the world and production of recordings. All of us certainly know we can expect a raw suomi hardcore punk charge whose members may very likely have got their second wind!!! Let's bid RATTUS welcome at OEF 2018!!!


The legendary Finnish punk veteran RATTUS still keeps going strong. Since it's formation in 1978 the band still sounds just as angry and aggressive if not even more fierce than ever before. The name RATTUS was taken from the first LP of THE STRANGLERS, "Rattus Norvegicus". RATTUS is latin meaning a rat, a very big rat. In the early days RATTUS did shows only in their hometown and near of it but since then have toured all around the world. Nowadays RATTUS is one of the best known Finnish hardcore bands. In 1988, they split up but returned in 2001. In 2011 Jake decided to leave the band and was replaced by Jopo. 2018 is the 40th anniversary of RATTUS and will be celebrated with a new album and an LP, where Finnish and international artists pay tribute to RATTUS by covering old classic songs.
