THURNEMAN - "TEGELSTEN FOR TEGELSTEN" 7"
Third EP by this Stockholm, Sweden quartet, and it blows their other two outstanding efforts out of the water. Defying easy sub-sub-genre categorizations, Thurneman take the raw materials of straightforward 80s hardcore--blistering drums, frantic riffing, and hoarse, shouted vocals--and flesh them out with creative song structures and unique atmospheric touches. This potent combination of aggression and catchiness brings to mind early 80s classics like HŸsker DŸ's Everything Falls Apart LP as well as Scandinavian rippers like Headcleaners and Missbrukarna.
