This is too good not to mention: you can now, after all these years, finally get a FINAL EXIT shirt that doesn't cost a million at ebay. Monument Records have it in their webstore - and you need to get one!

When Refused wanted to relax in the rehearsal room and for a moment take themselves a little less seriously, they switched instruments with each other and started to play oldschool hardcore. 

They called themselves FINAL EXIT, used pseudonyms and immediately became the notorious and popular hardcore band in Umeå, Sweden. Sometimes they played naked and sometimes they even invited the kids to take the moshpit out to the street. One can say that if the members controlled their madness and rage in their regular bands they got out of control totally in Final Exit. 

While Refused was at the forefront with their new school, Final Exit took it back to the hardcore roots. The band managed to get something of a cult status during their short career. The band only existed four years long but it was an insanely entertaining history lesson! 

Now both the full-length albums "Teg" and "Umeå", together with compilation tracks and other stuff comes out as "Det egentliga Västerbotten - Complete discography 94-97". Coloured vinyl, gatefold cover, poster and even a live DVD included! 

Expect this release to be something extra, like a milestone in the history of hardcore. This is a monument representing the storm that swept in over Sweden, Scandinavia, the world, during the time era of the 90's!

Dennis younger brother, Fredrik Lyxzén, have filmed (and edited) the FINAL EXIT reunion gig from the Umeå Open festival earlier this year. There were plans to release a DVD and some labels were interested. But as it looks right now, the whole thing is put on ice. If it will ever come out, it will be called "Den stora vreden", but don't expect anything untill I can confirm that it's going to happen.

Hi there, 

Unfortunately I had to cancel my trip to Umeå so I missed the FINAL EXIT re-union gig. But you can check out some nice live photos from the gig and also read this interview (only in Swedish though) that I found on the net. The discography album "Det egentliga Västerbotten - komplett diskografi 94-97" is out on CD, not yet on LP. You should definitely check this release out! It includes all the Final Exit songs as well as the lyrics, lot's of nice live photos plus liner notes. A must have for anyone into hardcore music. This is a very nice testament of this legendary band!

The FINAL EXIT reunion gig is coming closer! As well as the Discography CD/LP. It's now official that Mofab Teg Recordings will release the CD-version and Wasted Sounds will release the LP-version. The album will include both full-lengths, the 7" and some compilation tracks. 

Wasted Sounds says: 

"Damn, this Swedish all-star band were the highest jumping, fastest playing band with attitude that were so Punk that it shocked an entire generation of young Swedish hardcore kids. This Straight Edge bands lyrics made a mark on the Swedish scene that cant be washed away. Final Exit were Swedens answer to Project X..."

The FINAL EXIT gig will not be on March 14 as I confirmed last time. They will play some day during the last weekend of March at the Umeå Open Festival. I will get back to you when I know exact time and date. There's also going to be a Discography CD/LP released, it will hopefully be out in time for the gig. Since all this great stuff is happening I felt that it was my duty to create a Final Exit page on this site! Check it out here
