Sounds Like Violence

Sounds Like Violence blend a melting pot of emotive sensibilities, they roar, wail and gush melody with the greatest of skill. Despite finding difficulty pursuing their musical dreams in and around the small town of Ängelholm, Sweden made them ever stronger, rather than fleeing to the brighter lights, the band stuck to their roots and knuckled down in order to get their show quite literally on the road. These are the boys that will no doubt make hardcore and punk kids strut the dance floor with a new grace and style.

Their 2004 release for Deep Elm introduced the band to the world and inspired gushing praise from the press including an astonishing KKKKK review in Kerrang!

2007 saw the release of their debut full length ‘With Blood On My Hands’ for Burning Heart Records, combined with a successful UK tour with Fightstar and continuing praise from the press. 2008 could well be their year….

Andreas Söderlund (vocals, guitar), Philip Hall (guitar),
