Horror-punk sensations from Kristianstad, Sweden

with special guests

The Dahmers: the Swedish rock 'n' roll horror sensation that's creeping up on you. In a tornado of influences like garage punk, classic rock and 60's pop this band truly is a Frankenstein's monster of music. This is a band who is going their own way with colorful contrasts and still keeping the main essence of what they are all about. With their catchy tunes that get stuck to your brain like a leech, The Dahmers suck you in to their music and to a world filled with darkness. Their lyrics and aesthetics have a big inspiration from classic horror movies, but you also find emotional exposures about frustration, solitude and alienation amongst other things in their songs. They are skeletons with attitude and put as much effort in to the visual experience as in their music.

Rasmus Grahn (guitar, vocals), Christoffer Karlsson (guitar, vocals), Karl-Oskar Hansson (drums), Tobias Age Augustsson (bass).
