By Blurt Staff

 

Since their creation in 2005, The Skull Defekts have taken
their base of classic rock with massive guitar riffing, and infused it with
their interest in circular composition, drone, tribal music, Indian ragas, ’60s
minimalism, and experimental music from numerous ages. The Skull Defekts are Sweden’s answer to the States’ Sonic Youth and
the Netherlands’
The Ex and one of the centerpieces of the Swedish experimental rock
scene.  The band’s members having served time in Union Carbide
Productions, Kid Commando, Alvars Orkester, Satan Power, Oceans of Silver &
Blood, Anti Cimex, Cortex, Trapdoor Fucking Exit, 8 Days of Nothing and more.
