Anti Cimex would like to remind you the recent rash of Metal-Punk bands getting sleazy with a little Motorhead is no new phenomenon. Like late ’80s TSOL, these Swede punks were surreptitiously sliding some cock in with their rock on 1993 album Scandinavian Jawbreaker when the rest of us were girding up with flannel for half a decade of mopery. “Braincell Battle” or “Only in Dreams” could easily be reckoned as Anti Cimex’s “Ace of Spades” as the band drifted even further from their humble D-Beat and Crust roots to a verdant pasture of grime and debauchery. No matter how debauched, though, Anti Cimex never wander too far from their punk roots. So classic Discharge is augmented with nihilistic ZZ Top boogie on “New Blood,” “Nailbiter’s” toasted gruyere horror film keyboards, or even by the surprising delicacy of “Pain (U Bring Me)’s” interlaced acoustic and electric guitars. Central to the album and its bipolar moods is the two part title track. “Scandinavian Jawbreaker Part 1” is a soccer hooligan of a punk tune that’s all pounding drums and scathing guitars while its sleazier twin, “Scandinavian Jawbreaker Part 2” is a biker bro hymn with a catchy “No chicks/Big dicks” refrain. Anti Cimex’s DNA lurks in the genetic code of just about every Metal-Punk band to call Sweden home and former band members can be found anchoring current stalwarts like Driller Killer and Wolfbrigade but the band’s influence can be felt even wider (as At the Gates' Alf Svensson, who contributed both album art and riffs to the punktastic “…Of Ice” can attest). Though I don’t think Scandinavian Jawbreaker is as strong or as thoroughly realized as predecessor Absolut Country of Sweden, it’s a vital transition for the worldwide HC/punk scene, paving a greasy biker sound that is only currently being emulated by punk kids across the globe.

ANTI CIMEX were a Swedish hardcore punk band, based in Skövde, Göteborg, Linköping, and Malmö, at different times, that formed in 1981. They were one of the first bands to define Scandinavian hardcore punk. Their second 7", Raped Ass, is considered to be a subgenre-defining D-beat record. Scene historian Peter Jandreus describes the group as the most famous Swedish punk band of the 1977-87 era. After several demos, ep's and singles during the 80s decade and playing a typical old-school d-beat punk heritage of the british legend punk Discharge, ANTI CIMEX decided to record 2 albums with an excellent quality production and a high technical level, with also a general sound close to metal bands. Then (early 90s) almost nobody buy it these works and finally the band decided disbanded. Nowadays I think the time has made justice and many people recognize these cd's as a very good works and a true effort to make punk / hardcore with high technical level, good production, decent sound, etc. There is a little fact which I don't understand: why ANTI CIMEX has always show its swedish roots and sing in english language? why not in swedish language? Apart this little detail, I personally love these 2 albums.
