The End - Snutdjavlar/Krossa! 7" EP 1980

Here's Sweden's earliest example of thrash. This single came out in 1980, and the band had been kicking this sound around in 1979. What you get here is one decent, echoey punker and 1 great thrasher. The lack of any other releases by this band guaranteed them long time obscurity, but this record is quite fun and is another testimony of thrash popping up all over the world at the turn of 1980. If only they could have done more songs like "Krossa!" on another slab of wax, they would have gone down in punk rock history.
