Raubtier (German: predator/animal of prey) is a Swedish Industrial metal band from Haparanda. On 25 March 2009 they released their first album Det finns bara krig ("There is only war" in English).[1] However, their first single "Kamphund" had already become a hit on the Swedish radio station Bandit Rock 106,3.[citation needed] On 22 September 2010, the band released their second album, titled Skriet från Vildmarken ("The Call of the Wild").

Raubtier toured with Sabaton during Sabaton's "World War Tour" in December 2010 which saw them visit several countries in Scandinavia.[2]

Raubtier released a new single on 13 November 2013 called "Qaqortoq" which was later included in the upcoming album Pansargryning which was released on 5 May 2014.

A further single, titled "Den Sista Kulan" ("The Last Bullet") was released at the end of August 2015, again as a teaser for the upcoming album "Bärsärkargång", which was later released on 19 February 2016. This album also came in a special edition with commentary from Hulkoff, where he talks about his inspirations and each song's meaning.

With exception of "Dragunov" with lyrics in English, all lyrics are in Swedish.
