Hårda Tider - Gatan Kallar
First listen to this lot and it's sound good. They're coming over to play the excellent Means To An End Fest at the 1 in 12 Club, Bradford in October. The home of DIY punk rock in the UK if you didn't already know.
Anyway, a few people I knew were quite excited about Hårda Tider getting added. Never heard of them but thought I'd check em out. Thankfully they're on bandcamp so it's easy enough.
Not quite the d-beat crust onslaught I was expecting what with them playing that fest and being Swedish. This is more like fast hardcore with a ton of NYHC and crossover chucked in. I could imagine 'dudes' getting 'siked' on 'losing their shit' to this. It's almost purposely written for circle pits and pile ons. No bad thing.
