Bomberos is a band from Norway, playing what they like to call "obscene, disgusting punk", was formed in 2002. Current members consist of Sven-Erik "Maniac" Kristiansen and Bård "Faust" Eithun, both known for their involvement in the black metal bands Mayhem and Emperor respectively.
Bomberos (Spanish for "Firemen" or "Firefighters") is a Norway-based punk rock outfit. They list bands such as Dead Kennedys, The Misfits, and Nine Pound Hammer as influences. The group was formed by Sven-Erik "Maniac" Kristiansen (vocals, ex-Mayhem), Bjørn Hinkel (guitars), Joacim Weibull (Bass) and Einar "Beinhard" Sjursø (Drums) in 2002. Limited to 500 7-inches, their January 2003 debut, Bringing Down the Neighborhood Average, acquired the group much respect in the underground Oslo rock scene, becoming well known for their chaotic live performances. In March 2004, Hate was released, featuring nine minutes of nothing more than pure, venomous hatred. Pete "Evil" Vegem (bass, ex-Hellride) and Bård "Faust" Eithun (drums, ex-Emperor, ex-Dissection, Aborym, Scum) both joined the band, replacing Weibull and Sjursø. On Faust's official web page, he had the following to say in regards to his involvement with Bomberos: "The plan is not to conquer the world, but rather just play music, do some gigs and fuck around a little".
