Synopsis

Album Description
Originally released in 1998, The Shape of Punk to Come "blurs the lines that separate punk, metal and hardcore, while peppering this brutal fusion with bits of techno percussion, jazzy rhythmic change-ups and long, complex song structures that support politically-charged messages," (CMJ, 1998). Refused's most critically acclaimed and final album exploded on the scene with the jaw-dropping hardcore anthem "New Noise," which Rage Against the Machine guitarist Tom Morello once described as "one of the great rock jams of all time" (Filter, 2006), and helped change the game forever influencing a range of genres still to this day. In addition to The Shape of Punk to Come, the 2LP also includes a download card featuring the long-rumored unreleased, incendiary live album that was recorded at the Umea Open festival in their hometown Ume , Sweden on April 3.

CD Reviews

Unfortunatley, not the shape of punk to come
Eric | Michigan | 07/02/2010
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I cannot think of a better rock album from the previous decade that matches this one in intensity and creativity. When I was in high school this was the album that brought together the punks and the metal heads. It compleley reinvigorated hardcore in a way that only they could have imagined. Refused took what they learned from Nation of Ulysses and made it anthemic. This album is literaly exploding with ideas and excellent song writing."
