Hi there, 

The legendary Swedish hardcore-band ABHINANDA are back! They have one, already sold out, reunion gig in Stockholm in January 2010 and a few dates in Japan to follow. The Refused-guitarists Kristofer Steen and Pär Hansson have both been involved in this awesome band! 

Confirmed tourdates: 
2010-01-26: Kafe 44 Stockholm, Sweden (sold out!)
2010-01-30: Kawasaki Club Citta - Tokyo, Japan

The Japanese label Alliance Trax recently released the compilation CD "Kizuna" which contains all the classic Abhinanda songs from 1993-98. It also includes one new previously unreleased track recorded in 2009!

Out now: 
> Final Exit - Det egentliga Västerbotten 2xLP+DVD!

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!

"Hello
Finally things are happening. We added two songs from our album on the player.
Good stuff. We are looking for a recordlabel to release the Cd. Interesting.

The April77 7" is out. Check out the april77.fr page for more info.
The 7" was intended to be the Last The Lost Patrol Band recording but ended up being a Invasionen record. It might be the only thing that we will ever do.
Don't worry. Eventually we will add the lyrics to the songs in english, so that you can figure out what we are all about. It is good though.

Alright, the record will be out in October hopefully.
We will keep this page more updated.
See you soon.
Invasionen!"
