Epitaph Records is pleased to announce the release of 'From The North', the new album from Swedish hardcore-punks, Raised Fist.
'From The North' is the quintet's first full-length album in 5 years and will be out on January 19th 2015.
If you had to characterise Raised Fist – one of Sweden's Hardcore scene's longest-running and most vital acts – with just one word, respect would be it. Want proof? Lou Koller of Sick Of It All described Raised Fist as “one of the world's three most progressive Hardcore bands”, Bruce Dickinson of Iron Maiden fame played them on his radio show and Jona Weinhofen (I Killed The Prom Queen, ex-Bring Me The Horizon) cites them as a huge influence.
Speaking of the album, frontman Alexander "Alle" Hagman says, "this time, everything HAS connected, like pieces in a perfect puzzle. You know when you have a classic album recorded."
He continues, "when you do something with your Heart, and the timing is right, there is magic. That is what happened with 'From The North'. From The North is where we are from, and we do shit differently up here! We do it hard, whether it's on stage or in the studio."
