Patareni are a punk rock / noise / grindcore band from Croatia, formed in 1983. Owing to their formation at such an early date, they are considered to be one of the earliest grindcore bands.[1] Their name comes from Pataria, a medieval sect.

Their discography is extensive, consisting of many CDs, LPs and split singles with bands such as Extreme Noise Terror, Agathocles and Cripple Bastards. Through these releases they gained a reputation as a cult band[2] and many bands have cited Patareni as being one of their primary influence,[3] which prompted the release of A Tribute to the Patareni.[4] In 2009, Terrorizer listed Patareni's Back to the Roots as one of its top 20 essential European grindcore albums. James Hoare commented: "Much beloved by Anal Cunt's Seth Putnam, who felt moved enough to write to them back in the day, Croatia's Patareni were the band for whom the word 'raw' was coined.. Hugely influential, some grindcore historians even argue they were the first. Either way, 'Back to the Roots' is a feats of strangely melodic crust and urgent stabs of grind like the twelve-second 'Sajkunda'."[5]

Patareni guitarist Davor played also for Hladno Pivo, one of the most popular rock bands in Croatia and other countries of the former Yugoslavia.[6]

Patareni drummer Poda played also for D.D.T & Fear of Dog (Serbia Noise/grind/punk '80) bands, and various international hard core bands such as; Visions of War Belgium crust punk band, Olho de Gato from Holland, Migra Violenta from Argentina and MDC ( Millions of Dead Cops) from United States of America.

Two members of Slovenian grindcore group Extreme Smoke also occasionally played in Patareni. Former member Giulio the Bastard of Italian grindcore band Cripple Bastards has also sung for Patareni.[7]
