Svart Records are proud to release the new EP from Sweden’s notorious proto-metal, punk-villains, Obnoxious Youth. 6 tracks of mayhem, havoc, chaos, death, destruction and savagery will rip heads wide open, and ignite minds on May the 15th 2020.
Terrorizer Magazine describe their music as a “raw high octane furious mix of punk, rock ‘n’ roll and evil speed fuelled hardrockin’ metal” and on Mouths Sewn Shut, Obnoxious Youth have molotovs lit and petrol cans full, brimming with the primitive zeal that made the early punk and metal movements of the 80s so exhilarating.
For fans of early Metallica, Black Sabbath, Discharge, Ramones, The Misfits, Danzig, Septic Death, RKL, Celtic Frost, Black Flag, Zeke, Adrenalin OD, Slayer, Negative Approach, Venom, Motörhead and Hawkwind, Obnoxious Youth is a furious melting pot of the incendiary spirit of wild, untamed, violent rock.
The seed of Obnoxious Youth was born in 2005, but in 2009 the band started to deform into the twisted force of nature it is today. Five souls, all with a fire burning inside were summoned to play rock music without boundaries or rules. Inspired by the most vile, twisted and extreme aesthetics known to man, The ’Youth started to explore and recreate the essence of music such as punk and metal and what those musical styles were before genres were even born.
True extreme music can never come from following rules. Obnoxious Youth stands and will always stand defiant against faux labels and against submitting to society’s mold. Mouths Sewn Shut is the sound of insurrection we need for these turbulent times.
