Requested: zerred for the first time. Refused, the Swedish prodigy of the US hardcore sound! Initially very much into that Victory Records style with the worst of them (Earth Crisis!), they still managed to do it better and release more interesting stuff than that scene was known for - but maybe not enough for my taste since I did not keep their first album This Just Might Be... ...The Truth (FLAC link welcome, I need to sink into some nostalgia now). Everlasting and Song To Fan... are great testimonies to that era, maybe the best stuff I know in that vein, you know, Inside Out etc. Things jump from great to über zer with the very much acclaimed The Shape Of Punk To Come, a worldwide hit that made them almost mainstream. This gem and the last two releases are completely awesome albums if you like your highly rocking, slightly metalized hardcore to run expert renditions of Fugazi, Rage Against The Machine, Shelter etc. sub-structures, still propelled by their heavy machinery with NYHC rotors. One can even detect Tool influences in the guitar tracks, and other things that rock. I just dropped a few big names, you will surely find your own influence detector more accurate - this is just to say here comes great crunchy music with something for a everyone except war metal fanatics. Large greatness in the super rocking zeriverse!
PS: slight typo on the folder name for Everlasting. It will unzip as 1997 instead of 1994.
Remove brackets and unzip: [refuzer]
!ZER Refused ZER!

Now if Refused are so much into freedom and revolution, they need to revamp their instruments and make them look like my new baby:
