"We’re back…but we’re evil – The almost complete Krunch, but more..."

Being a totally unique band and ahead of its time Krunch never really made it at home in Sweden, maybe because they never used all the punk-clichés. But they had a large audience in Europe and Germany, which they also toured twice. Krunch approach to punk was breathtaking speed, neckbreaking turns, a very special humour and surrealistic lyrics that made them one of the true pioneers of the second wave of punk that arrived to Sweden in early 80-ies influenced by bands like Discharge and MDC. This collection has everything they released on vinyl apart from the really early stuff. It also contains 4 previously unreleased tracks that was recorded in 1989 but not finished until 1993. Two songs are also remixed.

The Press on “Krunch”:

This is wild untamed hardcore on Swedish, diverse, with no limits and spurting with insane energy… It’s like being hit by a train.” Backstage

“Krunch is an all out, guns blasting panzer attack of a metal mutha played by inhuman hands. Second best single in the stack” NME”, UK
