The Scandicrust institution known as Fredag den 13:e was formed in Gothenburg/Sweden back in 2006. The five guys had met through local punk shows and decided to combine the raw power of Swedish punk acts like Anti Cimex and Mob47 with the rock n roll feel of Poison Idea and Motörhead. The new album 'Dystopisk Utsikt' contains 11 fierce tracks in the same style as their previous albums - the mix of riffs hailing from the last 30 years of rock music. In the opening track 'Plågad Av Ljuset' you will hear fragments of the Gothenburg death sound made famous by At The Gates, followed by raging d-beat in ’1984'. The rock n roll-feel of Poison Idea hits the listener in 'Av Skuld Och Skam' and the HC-breakdowns are lined up in 'Dödad Av Tid'. You will also hear fragments of Scandinavian black metal in riffs like 'Orsak Föder Orsak'. Lead singer G explains the idea behind the lyrics on the album: "The lyrics are not thematic like on their last album ’Domedagar' where the leitmotif was the end of the world, but on ”Dystopisk Utsikt” (which means 'Dystopian View') most of the lyrics involves the disgust towards religion, fascism and oppression that have risen all over the world during 16/17. Songs like 'Fängslad Mentalt', which translates 'Mentally Imprisoned', is about the constant fears living as a refugee and 'Är Du Hora Eller Gud?’ ('Are You A Whore Or God?) about sexual harassments that was made public by the #metoo movement.” 'Dystopisk Utsikt’ was mastered by Brad Boatright (From Ashes Rise) in his studio Audiosiege in Portland.
