Swedish punks the Satanic Surfers formed in the autumn of 1989 around singer Erik and drummer Rodrigo; guitarist Frederick and Magnus soon joined the line-up, as did bassist Tomek, although the band's debut effort Skate to Hell did not appear until 1993.
Singer Ulf replaced Erik for the follow-up, 1994's Keep Out, and with Ulf's subsequent departure Rodrigo agreed to assume vocal duties for Hero of Our Time, issued the next year. 666 Motor Inn followed in 1997, and upon completing 1999's Going Nowhere Fast Tomek left the Satanic Surfers, to be replaced by bassist Matthias. In mid-2000, the band issued Songs from the Crypt and Fragments and Fractions. The group added drummer Martin Svensson for touring purposes and jumped back into the studio in early 2002. The results, Unconsciously Confined, came out in the spring of the same year. ~ Jason Ankeny, Rovi
