REGIMEN: Sinnesfrid: LP

Was mightily impressed with these Swedes’ debut a little more than three years back, and this likewise doesn’t disappoint. Unlike many of their punk rock countrymen, they avoid the whole Discharge influence altogether and instead tear into some cracking, largely mid-tempo hardcore steeped in surf with the occasional psychedelic flourish. Eight tunes that’ll stomp a mudhole in ye and leave you praying that they somehow find a way to make it stateside for a monster tour with Night Birds. –Jimmy Alvarado (Sista Versen)
