Hate is just a feeling is a 5 piece punkrock act from Stockholm Sweden. They play punkrock from when it started, died and resurrected. With influences from folkmusic they hit with both distorted guitars and a violin.
THE HATE is bound with scraps of memories from the past. All the members have been working together in earlier projects playing punkrock, folkmusic and rock'n'roll. Thabbe is the kid of the crew, running the ancient machinery of percussion. Micke walks the road just behind him as he brings thunder with his bass. Clabbe and Marcas wroar as absolute hyenas with their guitars and Marcas, if not nude, are lurking in the concrete forest with his fiddle. Nizze is crying with his hard, deep voice telling tales about the emperors betrayal and the peoples self destructive ways.
TODAY the band is rehearsing at Årsta Partihallar in Stockholm. The rooms are placed in some old office spaces where they have built their own studio. The corridors are filthy and the landlord doesn't care about the bands as longs as they pay. At warm summer days the area stinks of rotten fruit and are crowded by hungry birds. The first albums recorded in the studio is "The road to kingdom come" and "Land of Glory", both ptoduced by Thabbe.
IF WE TAKE A LOOK in the scrapbook of hate we'll find bands as Sighstens Grannar, Två fisk och en fläsk, Nepente, De Osaligas Kapell, AS and many more. As the black nothingness of the past is so great nothing more need to be said more than that they were spreading the malady already then.
HATE IS JUST A FEELING started up in Norrtälje, a small town an hour from Stockholm. Norrtälje is located at the eastcoast and the town have been in flames several times as we let our eyes and mind travel further back in history. The name of the band back then was [sic]. As the band broke up Nizze started Mansic together with Marcas in a second effort to bring auditory sensations to the world. Clabbe were joining the band and as one dispute lead to another in their difficulties finding the blood needed Micke, who origins from [sic], was called back. Jocke from old Nepente where bashing the snare as Mansic released "Everyday is a Tragedy" and "Beutygone". He couldn't leave his heart for the music so he was replace by Thabbe and to celebrate the new era Mansic changed name to Hate is just a feeling.
