THURNEMAN: Luggsliten Evnad: CD

Swedish hardcore from a band named after a Swedish cult figure and murderer from the 1930s. (Thurneman is an anagram for manhunter.) I have no earthy idea what these cats are singing about but they sure go after it. Kind of like the Regulations, except for that whole Swedish lyrics thing and maybe a little rougher around the edges. Love how the last song slows it down, lets you catch your breath, reload for another listen.
