RAWHIDE is a killer Death / Punk band out of Sweden that started over a decade ago.
"MURDER ONE" is the bands first full length release for PATAC RECORDS. The band
was formed by guitarist & vocalist Robert of BESTIAL MOCKERY. The band plays a
killer old school style of Punk Rock music with touches of Swedish Death Metal mixed
within. The Punk Rock has an old '70's British Punk Rock vibe to it. The music is fast
paced obnoxious and gritty with a D.I.Y. vibe to it. I love the way the production is,
because it makes it feel like you pulled it right from that era. The music has a faster paced
sound which is where the Death Metal influences come out. The majority of the music has
that old back alley club entrance to a basement some where in the heart of England Punk
Rock feel. The vocals are done in a grisly dirty and raunchy harsh Punk Rock scream style.
These guys would have probably giving the SEX PISTOLS a ride for their money if they
came out back in the day. Think of SEX PISTOLS meet MOTORHEAD meet
ENTOMBED! I know it sounds like a crazy combination that wouldn't work, but these
guys pull it off and it sounds killer. RAWHIDE may fall more on the Punk side of music,
but I could see a lot of Metal fans getting into these guys too!
