Written by Ted [Cow magazine, Swedish, -]
Sista utgvan frn norrlnningarna innan de lade ner crustgitarrerna fr gott. Hade inte s mycket att gra med bandet nr det begav sig, men vad jag frstr s har du fluktat lite mer p metalgenren till den hr releasen. Jag brukar ha lite svrt fr band som driver frn punk till metal, men det hr r helt okej fr mig.
Lten ?Melting ice? har ett ganska lngt intro som nstan fr mig att vilja peta till nlen s den hoppar framt lite och nr manglet vl kommer igng r det inte riktigt ngot som fr mig att hoppa av gldje. Fr mig fr sna hr ltar en strre mening om man sjunger p svenska. Med engelsk text fr jag ingen riktig relation till dem och det kunde ha varit vilket band som helst i hela vrlden. Inget spnnande p sidan A allts?
P B-sidan bjuds det i alla fall p tv ltar och fantastiskt nog med svenska texter. Bde ?Krigssng? och ?Ruiner? drar upp betyget avsevrt. Frstnmnda lten har gjorts p en dikt av Dan Andersson och jag tycker att det r s jvla bra! De har verkligen lyckats linda in texten p ett snyggt stt i sin musik, med ett snyggt arrangemang lten igenom.
Passa p nu och tjacka skivan, ls Dan Anderssons text och ge gonen lite godis i form av Mathias Kroghs snygga omslag.

Personkrets har till sitt sista slpp Ruiner (som jag trodde var en engelsk titel) supit bort Acursed-patchen fr gott och patchat om nitvstens ryggtavla med en Bolt Thrower. Det lter allts mer metalinfluerat n tidigare med fett tuggande gitarrer. Inte mig emot fr s hr kompetent har Personkretsarna aldrig ltit, sen s gillar ja Hellshock och det dr ocks, som ja antar dom sneglat en aning p. I och med tugg och snt dr lter det ven mer Hardcore n tidigare, det r vl nn Ume-hardcore bieffekt antar jag. Det hr lter bra i alla fall, ohippt och gtt och inte ett dugg tillgjort. 3 spr av god kvalitet innehller Ruiner och det enda jag kan tnka p som inte tilltalar mig mig r att Rkans sng skulle kunna va lite bttre, den knns lite pratig faktiskt. ?Krigssng? r en dikt av Dan Andersson (inte den blinda ljudteknikern frn Kristinehamn tyvrr) som norrlningarna tonsatt med fet orchpunk. Detta r en vrdig avslutning tycker jag. Ngra av medlemmarna har ett nytt band som heter ?Misantropic? som frmodligen kr samma stuk (fast nnu mer metal), blir till att spana in. Det r trd i vinterskrud p omslaget frresten?

I had the great pleasure of reviewing Personkrets 3:1?s full-length The Glorious Dead and was very pleased with the northern Swedes take on metal-injected crust punk and was thus very disappointed when I heard that they broke up shortly after the release. What I have here is their epitaph; a 7? vinyl named ?Ruiner? and all I can say is that if you liked ?The Glorious Dead? you?ll like this. The style is the same and as is often the case, mixing d-beat, crust punk, metal riffs and an over-distorted bass is always a good idea!

?Melting ice? starts of the single and sounds like it could?ve come directly from the ?The Glorious Burden?-session; slow, catchy intro with lots of d-beat and pissed off vocals once the verse kicks in. Second song is Swedish ditty about the horrors of war (or whale fishing or erect penises, I don?t fucking know) and has a sweet guitar-melody that hooks you straight away and forcible inserts itself into your head. Now I don?t know if the mp3-recording I have of the song got fucked up in the transfer from vinyl (I don?t have a vinyl-player, I?m less then 200 years old) but towards the end of the song everything sounds like it?s slowing down and the guitars come detuned. quite a weird effect and it sounds like Personkrets suddenly became the least tight band in the history of the world. Intentional or not (I?m guessing it?s the vinyl player), it sure is amusing. Last (ever) track for Personkrets 3:1 is ?Ruiner? and guess what? It?s still crust, d-beat and pissed off vocals galore! No deviation from the form here, just short and to the point. Here I feel the band missed an golden opportunity to fuck with their fans, as the final song they should?ve made something totally weird and unfitting like a Eurovision Grand Prix cover or maybe ?Krigssng? again, played with their armpits? or maybe not.

I need some more coffee.

(P.S. A couple of the band members went on and formed Misantropic, my guess is they will use a lot of d-beat, crust and pissed off vocals)

This 3-track 7" serves as the band's swansong, but considering that I had never heard them until this record showed up, it hardly matters. A fitting epitaph? Eh, probably not. Anyhow, Personkrets 3:1 play(ed) crusty hardcore with a pronounced metal influence that creeps through in the various breakdowns and quick solo breaks that pepper each song. They put it off competently enough, but it's just not that interesting for the most part. The one exception however is "Krigssng", a track based on an old poem by Dan Andersson which is by far the most melodic and best composed tune on the record. It makes me feel like if they embraced their metal side a bit more, they'd be a better band, but I suppose that's a moot point considering their current inactive status. Perhaps the ex-members' new band Misanthropic will tip the scales further one way or another, wait and see.
 
Written by Erik [Lords of Metal, English, -]
Personkrets 3:1 come from Ume in the north of Sweden and was formed in the late winter of 2003. Rkan and Marcus had been talking about starting a band for almost a year and now they both felt that the time had come to launch the most depressive and suicidal band the world had ever seen. After searching the gutters of Ume they came up with three more scums who shared their vision of turning all the anger, hate, pain, self-abuse, angst and depression into something creative but yet destructive. The five worst human beings who have ever walked the surface of the earth had found each other and Personkrets 3:1 was born. But as pretty as the birth might have been, the band is dead already.

On release of this 'Ruiner' EP, the band will have split up. This is indeed the last gasp of a band of which I first expected to be doom metal, but boy oh boy, do I get a load of great excellent crust thrown in my mouth! Great riffs, great arrangements, great songs! Really a tasteful sweet with top production! And also quite on the news : 'Melting Ice' is about global warming and our stupidity how we handle it! No without a doubt, a great release! If you are lucky to see one, buy it do not hesitate or regret it for the rest of your miserable life!

So this is the last record from the Swedish crust platoon Personkrets 3:1. Over the years I have been skeptic, so it?s time to see what the final judgment will be.
It?s too damn bad it?s a 45 RPM, ?cause Melting ice would have made a wicked doom metal song (at least it did on 33 RPM). But on the correct speed Melting ice is a really good metallic crust tune with serious lyrics, but still the vocals annoy me. The dark back-ups by Eken (the studio guy) is wicked, but Rkan?s (main vocalist) voice is too weak and his English pronunciation could have used some fine-tuning. Side B starts off with a churning, heavy intro before turning into the usual crustcore we?re used to. Krigssng is a poem by Dan Andersson, which is of course agony filled, although I?m a bit skeptical since I?m not much of a poetic guy. The ending track Ruiner is what wins my heart, and that?s ?cause it reminds me a lot of Skitsystem in that heavy, dark crust mangle way. Music-wise this is the bands best ever, I just wish they would have changed vocalists a long time ago.

Personkrets 3:1 tackar fr sig, halar fanan och stter punkt med tre kompositioner som lter mer metal n gruppen gjort ngonsin tidigare. Grunden av crust har flyttats allt lngre ner p prioriteringslistan och fr egentligen bara fritt spelrum i titelspret. Det r synd att orkestern vljer att splittras nr det lter bttre n ngonsin.

Allra vassast r det i Dan Andersson-tonsttningen Krigssng (ven om jag av ren princip tycker att folk borde ge fan i den gamla skalden, snart har vl varenda medelmtta tolkat tminstone halva hans diktsamling) dr det sprutar metal om det forna punkgnget. Hela ?Ruiner?-sjuan r ett tydligt exempel p att metal och punk i rtt utfrande verkligen passar hand i hand.

Tre snabba projektiler (nvl, speltiderna drar ivg upp emot fyra minuter vid tv tillfllen, ocks det mer metal n punk) r ett vrdigt avslut fr den hr gruppen. Anledningen till uppbrottet har jag ingen insikt i, men kanske har det med den nyfunna inriktningen att gra. Om Personkrets 3:1 knner att de gjort sitt med punken kanske vi kan hoppas p en nybildning i ngot annat format?

Right, hr har vi allts sista sucken frn Umepunxen och det r lgt ifrn kattskit kan jag sga. Vi bjuds p tre ltar, en med engelsk text och i de andra tv gastas det p svenska. Normalt stt gillar jag de svensksjungna bidragen bst men denna gng vinner ?Melting Ice? p musikalisk knock out. Personkrets lter som de brukar mer eller mindre. Lite mer metal kanske samt lite mrkliga trallstrebersvibbar i ?Krigssng?, men jag antar att det skall vara lite ?folk? ver musiken nr texten r av poeten Dan Andersson. Nu med facit i hand s hller jag fullngdaren ?The Glorious Dead? samt demon ?Kampen Mot Livet" som de bsta plattorna jag har haft njet att recensera. Men, gillar du svensk kvallerpunk med hyfsat eget stuk skall du helt klart tjacka svl den hr vinylen som resten av snubbarnas slpp. Klart vrt!

This is these Swedish crust punk's last record, which is a bit sad as they're very good! It's more metal this time, and I don't have anything against that. It's also pretty heavy, but you can still hear that it's a crust core band and not a true metal band.
Anyhow, these 3 songs are really great, and I will actually miss this band a little.

This stuff will fit just fine for both fans of metal and punk, that's for sure!

Efter frra rets fantastiska ?The glorious dead? bestmmer sig norrlnningarna i Personkrets 3:1 att helt sonika lgga ner verksamheten. Dock, innan dess ska det sista materialet prnglas ut, och det i form av tresprssingeln ?Ruiner?. Och allt gott i det. ?Melting ice?, ?Krigssng? och just ?Ruiner? r om mjligt n mer apokalyptiska och olycksbdande n de tio spren frn fullngdaren. Det norrlndska vemodet r allerstdes nrvarande och lgger en extra dimension till den redan dystra crustmetallen Personkrets gnat sig t. Ett perfekt avslut p en karrir, men samtidigt vcks en lngtan efter mer. Mer, som allts inte finns. G i frid, mina vnner!

Wow...I have listened to a lot of vinylsingles today and this is the one which have made me most happy today. Its maybe not that this is the most happy record I have listened to but the best one today. Personkrets plays a type of crustcore but I think that music sound smore like Amebix than it sounds Anticmex and that shall they be honoured of that fact. Their heavy music is among the best group in this style in sweden now.

Wow...jag har lyssnat p mnga vinylsinglar idag och det r nog denna som gjort mig mest glad idag. Det r kanske inte s att detta r den mest gladlynta skivan men jag tycker nog att det hr r den bsta idag. Personkrets spelar en typ av crustcore men jag tycker nog att det r mer Amebix n det r Anticimex och det skall de ha all heder av. Deras tunga musik r bland det bsta i Sverige just nu i denna genre.

Det hr r det sista vi hr frn Personkrets 3:1 trkigt nog, fr de var ett enormt bra band. Men samtidigt r jag tacksam fr att de slutar nr de ligger p topp, och spelar in musik som knappast kommer att glmmas bort. Personkrets tackar fr sig med tre ltar p hrlig vinyl, och alla tre kncker genom gedigen produktion. Ngra av medlemmarna fortstter i Misantropic, s hll utkik.

This is the last release from Personkrets 3:1 as they stopped their
activities earlier this year. But not before they could lay down these
three killer tracks onto vinyl. Continuing on the same path as the LP I was involved in releasing so I really don't need to explain how much I like this.
Raging crustcore and classic Swedish rpunk go hand in hand and the result is great.
