Bulldozer hardcore punk from these Swedish veterans.

Anyone who heard the Humant Blod 7" knows that these rippers aren't done setting the standard for cut to the bone kang punk. Following those recording the Swedish section of the band returned to Sweden and reentered the studio for a 3rd Dissekerad LP.

Ripping and raw, unexpected and crushing... this is a hardcore record that shows that you can still make something fresh and exciting out of a well known style.


Our take: God damn, the new Dissekerad is a scorcher! This Swedish hardcore band, which features Poffen from Totalitär on vocals, released their first record back in 2013 and has continued pounding out 7”s and 12”s ever since, with new records appearing at a frequency that belies their brilliance. This new one, Inre Strid, might be the crown jewel, or maybe it’s the one I’m most excited about it right now because it’s fresh to my ears… either way, it’s a ripper! There are a lot of bands in the world who attempt this style of Swedish mängel (I might even be in one…), but Dissekerad’s take is just perfect, traditional with the furious d-beats and sinister riffing you expect from the style, but with enough flourish and personality that you know it’s them from the first note. I like that Dissekerad isn’t afraid to mix in a little metal, with a midrange-y guitar tone, a lot of fast tremolo picking, and the occasional wild guitar solo, but there’s none of metal’s grandiosity… everything serves the relentless, bashing rhythms. While highlights abound, my favorite moment is the straight up bonkers riff that drives “Idioter,” a hideous barrage of slides and pull-offs that perfectly combines savagery and precision. Inre Strid is all fire, though, and a must-hear for anyone who likes their hardcore mean and nasty.
