“Musically, the band’s rampage borrows heavily from Japanese d-beat ragers like Disclose and Kriegshög. The raw vocals bring to mind 1980s extreme metal groups like Venom and fellow Swedes, Celtic Frost. While the marriage of these styles isn’t anything new, Paranoid does an excellent job of carrying on this tradition while also sculpting their own identity”
– Antigravity Magazine, William Archambeault

For those who missed out and lost track of our early releases and compilation songs. These records are for you! We have obviously also added some unreleased joints, versions and a few covers. To be released March/April on D-takt & Råpunk/PND (Europe) and Konton Crasher (US). Pre-orders, bundle deals and more information on each title will follow mid March. Stay tuned.
We’re not only make a European tour together with SEX DWARF in May, but also a split 7″. Our friendship goes way back in time and we have talked about both making a few shows and a record together for some years now. We feel very excited that it finally becomes reality, and not just talk.

Jocke did this short interview with The Sound Lab last year. Just noticed that they posted it.
HOW DID YOUR NAME ORIGINATE?
I had/have this one-man-army band called Electric Funeral (taken from Black Sabbath’s album “Paranoid”). There was a natural transition when this project (later band) took shape and I’ve always wanted to have a band spelled in the same way both in English and Swedish. But if you want to go deeper, you can say that it also reflects the time we live in where nobody trusts anyone.
WHERE WAS YOUR FIRST GIG AND HOW MANY PEOPLE WERE THERE?
It was in Stockholm (The Liffey), December 2013. Institution, Parasit and Diagnosis? Bastard! also played. The venue was a small wine cellar and there was not a lot of people needed for it to feel crowded. The show was perhaps no success but it was a great night among good friends.
WHEN WAS YOUR LAST DAY OFF AND WHAT DID YOU DO WITH IT?
Day off…whats that? I have two children, a full time job, 2-3 ongoing bands/projects, works as a graphic designer and sound engineer…and on top of all that I also run this independent record label called “D-takt & Råpunk”. You do the math. Haha.
WHAT IS SOMETHING – APART FROM YOUR PHONE OR WALLET – THAT HAS TO BE IN YOUR VICINITY AT ALL TIMES?
My family, without them I’m lost and nothing. Its sad to see how people have their phones stuck in their hand 24-7 and how they spend, dedicate and build their lives on and around it. That’s just not me.
WHICH SONG BY ANOTHER ARTIST DO YOU WISH YOU’D WRITTEN?
Any song by Iron Maiden.
WHAT’S BEEN THE MOST SURREAL FAN MOMENT?
We’re not The Beatles so there have never been any such moments. We have truly great supporters which always supports what we do, but I would never take it as far as calling them fans.
“A blend of d-beat (the main ingredient), rawpunk, black metal, hardcore, speed metal and rock ‘n roll, but executed in a very energetic manner.”
