Skitsystem (Swedish pronunciation: [ɧiːtsʏsteːm], (literally "Shit System") is a Swedish crust punk band formed in early 1994. Their sound was heavily influenced by death metal and d-beat. The band members originally came from different death metal bands, bonding over a common interest in d-beat.[1] Initially the group was a side-project of two members of At the Gates.[2] The band announced in December 2007 that they were on indefinite hiatus.[3] In November 2009, Skitsystem announced plans to play two shows in Göteborg in late February 2010, with possibly more to follow.[4]

Fredrik Wallenberg cites the group's initial influences as Anti Cimex, Asocial, Discharge, Doom and Disrupt.[2]
