Eye for an Eye is a Polish hardcore punk rock band founded in 1997 in Bielsko-Biała. EFAE, as it is also known, plays an old school style of punk, more along the veins of The Exploited or even, some say, Agnostic Front. The punk stylings of EFAE has been compared to fellow countrymen Post Regiment, perhaps mostly due to the common factor of a female vocalist. However, EFAE's Anna Koziel's vocal style is remarkably different from the nowadays disbanded Post Regiment's Dominika "Nika" Domczyk's style. EFAE has been touring relatively extensively in a musical climate that is not at the moment very receptive for retro trends.


The singer, Anna Koziel, is at times mixed up with Polish jazz vocalist living in the Netherlands Anka Koziel for several reasons; both are female front singers, but mainly due to Anna's nickname; Anka.



Eye For An Eye Was founded in 1997 in Bielsko-Biała, a city in southern Poland. They are not to be confused with the Boston band of the same name, who predated them by roughly ten years.

The band released their first album, Fabryka Drwin, in 2000. Between 2000 and 2004 the band played over 100 concerts in Europe, mainly in Poland, Italy, Austria, the Czech Republic and Slovakia. In 2004 Eye For An Eye released their second album, Dystans. In 2005 the band released a split CD with The Hunkies.

In 2007 the band released the full-length album GRA. In addition, in December 2007 the band released the album as a colored vinyl release.

The latest release is the album Cisza, released in 2008. No upcoming releases have been scheduled so far.
