Brainbombs is a Swedish noise rock band formed 1985 in Hudiksvall. The members are Dan, Peter, Jonas, Drajan and Lanchy.[1] The latter was also a member of Totalitär.[1] They are notable for their very repetitive, noisy, untuned, raucous sound. Their lyrical themes and concept have been very controversial, as some of the songs depict acts of rape, torture, and murder, similar to the writings of author Peter Sotos, whom has been named as an influence for the group.[2] Other artists named as influences for the band include Chrome, James Chance, and Whitehouse,[1] and the group's name comes from a Punishment of Luxury song.[2]
