To even the most pedestrian fan of d-beat hardcore/crust punk, VICTIMS is undeniably one of the genres kings, their name as synonymous with the genre as Anti-Cimex, Wolfpack/Wolfbrigade, From Ashes Rise, and the like. Through an exceptionally solid but not overcrowded discography since their 1997 inception, through labels like Havoc Records, Deathwish, Tankcrimes and more the band has yielded five prior LPs, and a variety of EPs, having shared platters on splits with the likes of From Ashes Rise, Kylesa, and Acursed. In the fourteen years that have passed since those early days of rehearsals in Nypan, VICTIMS has toured internationally, heavily focused on Europe and the US extensively. Along the way theyve experienced highs and lows, seen lineup changes and personal tragedy, theyve been robbed in Italy and hospitalized in the USA. Theyve also played with a host of great bands, touring with the likes of Coliseum, Rotten Sound, Trap Them and The Ocean, Municipal Waste, Black Breath, and countless others, and undoubtedly made some life-long friendships. Today, VICTIMS stands as one of the most respected bands of the underground punk and hardcore community.
