Refused, a hardcore band from Umeå released this masterpiece of an album back in ’96. I listened to allot of hardcore back then, but nothing could compare to this… The first time I heard it I was completely blown away and to this day it’s still one of my favorite hardcore/metal albums.
Whenever I listen to it I can remember the insane mosh pits and screaming along to the lyrics I knew by heart. I saw Refused 6 or 7 times and not much can compare to the energy and stage presence that these guys delivered.
My three favorite songs are:
- Rather be dead
- Crusader of hopelessness
- Hook, line and sinker
