JOY is for the oppressed, the beaten, smashed, abused and neglected. But also wankers, idiots, losers and primitive humans will surely find something compelling here.
Artist: Bitch Hawk
Album title: JOY
Release date: 2 Nov

Bitch Hawk is a Swedish hardcore/punk/sludge/neo trash band from Stockholm, Sweden. The band formed a few years ago and are working furiously. Songs, releases and tempo are intensifying in pace by the minute. JOY is their second album and the second alum to be released in 2018.
Since the last recording, The sound has transformed in to an even sharper, nastier and brutal soundscape.
“We wanted the album to be called Joy. We wanted something totally stupid.
Our aim this time has been to cross-pollinate Megadeth and Lumpy and the Dumpers.”
JOY was recorded, mixed and produced by Pelle Gunnerfeldt (member of Fireside, producer of The Hives, Refused, Sahara Hotnights, Entombed, The Knife, Breach, Honningbarna, The Hellacopters, Peter Bjorn And John. Status Quo, Mando Diao and many more)
