Disfear is a Swedish extreme metal band that formed in the early 1990s and recorded sporadically over the years. After releasing the albums Soul Scars in 1995 and Everyday Slaughter in 1997, the group did not release another album until 2003 with a 12-track album, Misanthropic Generation, featuring vocalist Tomas Lindberg of At the Gates and The Great Deceiver fame and Uffe Cederlund of Entombed fame. They later worked with Converge's Kurt Ballou for their album Live the Storm.

Bassist Henke Frykman died of cancer on 25 March 2011.[3]


Tomas Lindberg has cited The Ramones, AC/DC, Motörhead, The Wipers, The Dead Boys, The Stooges, Jerry's Kids, Articles of Faith, and Uniform Choice as musical influences, as well as Michel Foucault as a conceptual influence.[4] Other bands mentioned as inspirational include Discharge, Entombed, Turbonegro, Zeke, and Anti Cimex.[5]
