Biography

Chapter 18: Final Exit (Swe)

Well, I have to admit that I was one of those people that didn’t know that this was actually a side project to the mighty Refused back then. It’s kind of funny because I was a diehard Refused fan (and still is) and didn’t see the connection at all. I remember picking up their album ”Teg”, it had the Desperate Fight Records logo on the back and to me that was all I needed to know. I had already picked up killer records with Abhinanda, Separation and Shield on the same label so I recognized the logo as a symbol of quality. I was alot into hardcore but I sure had never heard a band that played as fast as Final Exit. Goddamn, they were fast! Fucking right-in-your-face old school hardcore!

 

 

 

 So how could it pass me by who they actually were? 1. This was long before myspace and facebook. 2. The members of Final Exit used nicknames 3. They didn’t show their faces on the record covers. 4. Final Exit only made a handful of gigs and I never had the chance to see them. 5. It was never their intention to be an all-star-band.

 Final Exit were a shortlived project, but will always be remembered for bringing the sense of humour into hardcore. Their attitude was raw and uniqe and sure have influenced other Swedish bands like D.S.-13, Second Thought and Hårda Tider, to name a few.

 Since both their albums sold out ages ago, Monument thought it would be a great idea to re-release them (together with all their other tracks) as ”Det egentliga Västerbotten - complete discography”.  Make sure to pick up this piece of Swedish hardcore history if you haven’t already.

When Refused wanted to relax in the rehearsal room and for a moment take themselves a little less seriously, they switched instruments with each other and started to play oldschool hardcore. 
They called themselves Final Exit, used pseudonyms and immediately became the notorious and popular hardcore band in Umeå, Sweden. Sometimes they played naked and sometimes they even invited the kids to take the moshpit out to the street. One can say that if the members controlled their madness and rage in their regular bands they got out of control totally in Final Exit. 
While Refused was at the forefront with their new school, Final Exit took it back to the hardcore roots. The band managed to get something of a cult status during their short career. The band only existed four years long but it was an insanely entertaining history lesson! 

Now both the full-length albums "Teg" and "Umeå", together with compilation tracks and other stuff comes out as "Det egentliga Västerbotten - Complete discography 94-97". Coloured vinyl, gatefold cover, poster and even a live DVD included! 
Expect this release to be something extra, like a milestone in the history of hardcore. This is a monument representing the storm that swept in over Sweden, Scandinavia, the world, during the time era of the 90's!

The members of Final Exit and Final Exit as a band where known for their uncompromising lifestyle (straight edge) and their hard, fast music. They where around since 87, from the beginning of the Umeå Hardcore scene.

They released Teg, their first album in 94. 15 tracks of raw, brutal, hard, fast straight in your face hardcore classics. Their second and last album, entitled Umeå [sound samples] came in early 97 and it was backed up by the bands Final tour. The band had allready realized that there was no place in todays hardcore scene for a band like Final Exit. They where TOO real and didn´t want to take part of todays fake scene...
