Artist Biography
Dear moshoholics, friends of all things horror and metal. Welcome to your nightmare. Welcome to... where moshers dwell. The moshing beast we know as F.K.Ü., short for Freddy Krueger's Underwear, first raised its ugly head back in 1987. In those days they were more or less pure S.O.D. die-hard disciples, to say the least, and after a handful of something that was supposed to be rehearsals but more bared the resemblance of cheap beer and pizza fights, the band fell into a hiatus. It wasn't until confronted with a strange guy called Larry in early 1997 that the band considered bringing the slumbering beast back to life again. After the overwhelming response of the 20-song demo "Beware of the Evil Underwear" recorded in 1998, the guys decided to put some more effort in. Come 1999 and the horror metal men spend nine days in Dugout Studios with engineer Daniel Bergstrand to lay down the classic tracks that would come to complete their moshing magnum opus "Metal Moshing Mad". Released on Pat's own label, Head Mechanic Records, the 22-track mosher showed the world that it's still possible to have good, friendly, violent fun and create music that makes you diving to get to the nearest mosh pit! After the release and some successful festival gigs at Dist and 2000 Decibel, as well as a lot of unforgettable club gigs together with bands like The Haunted, Entombed and Meshuggah, among others, the band slowed down the pace as the members also paid their dues in other metal acts, taking up more and more of their precious moshing time. In 2004, Larry, Pete, Pat and Ted realized that what the world really needed was another dose of their patented Horror Metal Mosh, and so began the making of their sophomore moshing masterpiece "Sometimes They Come Back... To Mosh" (Head Mechanic Records). Once again inspired by 80′s thrash and horror movies and of course, old issues of Metal Forces and cheap beer, "Sometimes They Come Back... To Mosh" thrashed and slashed its way into the metal fans veins and once they tasted this hot dish of destruction... they ended up begging for more! Their unholy return led to some great tours including the now legendary "Weapons of Mosh Destruction" tour in the US together with Ghoul and Engorged and a short but intense visit to Italy with Hyades. In the summer of 2009, due to massive demand from all the dedicated moshoholics around the globe, the mighty Horror Metal Moshing Machine released their third, most furious and outrageous effort to date, "Where Moshers Dwell". Recorded in the boiler room of Ted's own Blueflame Productions studio and mixed by Larry in his Great Scot! Audio studio, this was the release that set a new standard for horror and metal for decades to come. This album is prime neck breaking, horror-inspired, sing-along thrash madness. The album received great reviews in top Swedish metal press such as Close-Up Magazine and Sweden Rock Magazine. Following the release of the album F.K.Ü. has toured Sweden extensively, playing all major festivals such as Sweden Rock Festival, Metaltown, Getaway Rock Festival & House of Metal, to name a few. So, once again, dear moshoholics, it's time to unite and mosh as one!
