Refused – The Shape of Punk to Come

refused-shape_of_punk-reissHardcore music isn’t usually my cup of tea, but there is something special about Refused.  They are able to blend musicianship and heavy music together in such a way that they were created an  intelligent album.  Based out of Sweden this is the bands third proper album.   This album was released to critical success but ended up not selling that well outside their native Europe.  Refused’s ideology was based around anarchy and this ideology is what eventually lead to their disbanding.  They found that their new found success didn’t mesh well with their beliefs.  When they broke up the singer went on to form the band The (International) Noise Conspiracy, previously featured on this segment.   Check out the videos after the jump. …………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………
