Totalitär – “Sin Egen Motstandare” LP
Sweden’s Totalitär originated from small town Hudiksvall in the mid-80’s silver age of Swedish Hardcore punk, releasing a few EP’s and touring the UK before disbanding in 1990. In 1994 the band reunited with new drummer, Jallo from No Security, to record what is arguably one of the best Swedish hardcore punk albums ever made, Sin Egen Motstandare (“One’s own enemy”) . Like any great punk record, it’s a stark reaction to the world around them with poignant, relevant lyrics Combined witht e trademark trademark Totalitär sound – quick, raging blasts of riveting d-beat hardcore drawing influence from classic Discharge and early Swedish hardcore, but distilled to catchy simplicity that masked incredible ingenuity within it’s straight forward template. Originally released as a CD-only release on the Finn Record label, Sin Egen Motståndare was originally released on vinyl by Prank in 1997 and again in a remastered version in 2003. This edition is from the original 2003 metal work but pressed at RTI and presented in a stoughton tip-on sleeve with insert.
