ANTI CIEMX

Punky

Formed: Gothenburg, Sweden

"You talk about the freedom
but we have no freedom
You talk about the rights
but we have no rights
This fucking system is liked a raped ass"

Named after a Swedish insecticide, Anti Cimex were obviously in thrall of Discharge, aping them throughout the 80s although, inevitably, moving inexorably towards the heavier end of heavy metal. Their early home-grown EPs Raped Ass (1983) and Victims Of A Bomb Raid (1984) didn't exactly break new ground but are infinitely more powerful and better played than most of the thrash records released at the time. I'm looking at you, Varukers! In fact, they smoke!

Returning in 1990 after a four-year split, Absolut Country Of Sweden was above average of its kind, with pristine production and a more refined metallic edge. For anybody into this stuff, it’s damn near essential, although the rougher, earlier EPs have the edge. Another LP, Scandinavian Jawbreaker, followed in 1993.
