I know a couple of Refused songs, Im not sure how I found out about them but I like them, Ive looked for their albums around and cant seem to find any. I like Tannhauser, its epic but completely listenable, its not pretentious as most 8 minute orchestral/metal pieces tend to be. Ill get a couple of the songs you mentioned PonyOne, I know a couple of swedes so Ill see about getting an album of theirs.
Refused broke up in '98-99, and the demand for their CD's comes and goes, so their label, Burning Heart, which produces a bunch of other Swedish bands, has let the CD production take a back burner to albums by The Hives and such.
Here's a link to where you can buy the CD's: http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/s...6387308-1638314
I have two CD's, Everlasting and The Shape Of Punk To Come. Everlasting was recorded in '97, and is more traditional punk hardcore with some death metal thrown into the mix (as witness to Sunflower Princess). It also has some really killer double pedalling. The Shape Of Punk To Come is arguable their best; they had more of a budget to record and so could afford to get a little more experimental with their production as well as their instrumentation. You have moments of extreme artistry with songs like Tannhauser (which they play the first part of on NPR as background sometimes!), and you have moments of pure death hardcore exstacy as like New Noise.
