Skumdum, fast melodic punk from Sweden

Skumdum is a Swedish punk rock band from Skellefteå. Their music is a blend of skate punk, hardcore and Swedish trallpunk. The band was formed in 1993 and has released 6 albums, numerous singles and a split album with the American punk band Hero of our time.

During the first decade they sang exclusively in Swedish, but in 2003 they switched to English in order to reach more listeners. Skumdum is today one of the biggest punk rock bands in Scandinavia and has also grown a devoted fan base in Europe and Japan

The album you can listen above is a compilation of their early releases. Songs 1-4 are taken from the "Lisa" EP (or Self-Titled EP), songs 4-17 from the "Demoner" album (my personal favourite), #18 "Utan Svar" is an outtake from the Demoner Recording, the #19 'Förakt' is taken from the "Alternative Heroes" compilation and the last song is taken from the "3 i En # 2" compilation.

My favourite songs? "Demoner" and "Till Minne Av Kåge".
