You can tell a lot about a band by their name. Swedish thrashers F.K.U.’s name stands for Freddy Krueger’s Underwear. OK, so maybe not. You can tell a lot about them by their song and album titles though. “Scream Bloody Mosher” suggests that the band are influenced by ’80s thrash, and listening to the song, this sounds like vintage Anthrax or Exodus. It turns out that the band have been around since the ’80s and have album titles including Metal Moshing Mad, Sometimes They Come Back… To Mosh and Where Moshers Dwell. Hey, at least they’re consistent.
For their new album, 4: Rise of the Mosh Mongers, out on Napalm now, the band lead with a song that’s frighteningly in line with the rest of their image. We’re not sure if the band tends to appear undead all the time, or if singer Larry Lethal always performs with a bullet wound in his head, like he does for this live video, but “Scream Bloody Mosher’ is a fun song that we’re proud to bring you the North American premiere of the video for.
