Warvictims – Domedagen

I don’t get a lot of time or opportunities to listen to music that isn’t extreme metal. I’m no expert at ‘punk’ music, either. (I hate using ‘labels’ too, by the way). I spend most my time listening to extreme metal, so hearing this ultra-violent and streetwise release from Sweden’s Warvictims, ‘Domedagen’, was a welcome variation. [&hellip
