Cow magazine, [written by Ted. Distributed by -]
Sista utgÄvan frÄn norrlÀnningarna innan de lade ner crustgitarrerna för gott. Hade inte sÄ mycket att göra med bandet nÀr det begav sig, men vad jag förstÄr sÄ har du fluktat lite mer pÄ metalgenren till den hÀr releasen. Jag brukar ha lite svÄrt för band som driver frÄn punk till metal, men det hÀr Àr helt okej för mig.
LĂ„ten ”Melting ice” har ett ganska lĂ„ngt intro som nĂ€stan fĂ„r mig att vilja peta till nĂ„len sĂ„ den hoppar framĂ„t lite och nĂ€r manglet vĂ€l kommer igĂ„ng Ă€r det inte riktigt nĂ„got som fĂ„r mig att hoppa av glĂ€dje. För mig fĂ„r sĂ„na hĂ€r lĂ„tar en större mening om man sjunger pĂ„ svenska. Med engelsk text fĂ„r jag ingen riktig relation till dem och det kunde ha varit vilket band som helst i hela vĂ€rlden. Inget spĂ€nnande pĂ„ sidan A alltsÄ 
PĂ„ B-sidan bjuds det i alla fall pĂ„ tvĂ„ lĂ„tar och fantastiskt nog med svenska texter. BĂ„de ”KrigssĂ„ng” och ”Ruiner” drar upp betyget avsevĂ€rt. FörstnĂ€mnda lĂ„ten har gjorts pĂ„ en dikt av Dan Andersson och jag tycker att det Ă€r sĂ„ jĂ€vla bra! De har verkligen lyckats linda in texten pĂ„ ett snyggt sĂ€tt i sin musik, med ett snyggt arrangemang lĂ„ten igenom.
Passa pÄ nu och tjacka skivan, lÀs Dan Anderssons text och ge ögonen lite godis i form av Mathias Kroghs snygga omslag.

Personkrets har till sitt sista slĂ€pp Ruiner (som jag trodde var en engelsk titel) supit bort Acursed-patchen för gott och patchat om nitvĂ€stens ryggtavla med en Bolt Thrower. Det lĂ„ter alltsĂ„ mer metalinfluerat Ă€n tidigare med fett tuggande gitarrer. Inte mig emot för sĂ„ hĂ€r kompetent har Personkretsarna aldrig lĂ„tit, sen sĂ„ gillar ja Hellshock och det dĂ€r ocksĂ„, som ja antar dom sneglat en aning pĂ„. I och med tugg och sĂ„nt dĂ€r lĂ„ter det Ă€ven mer Hardcore Ă€n tidigare, det Ă€r vĂ€l nĂ„n UmeĂ„-hardcore bieffekt antar jag. Det hĂ€r lĂ„ter bra i alla fall, ohippt och gött och inte ett dugg tillgjort. 3 spĂ„r av god kvalitet innehĂ„ller Ruiner och det enda jag kan tĂ€nka pĂ„ som inte tilltalar mig mig Ă€r att RĂ€kans sĂ„ng skulle kunna va lite bĂ€ttre, den kĂ€nns lite pratig faktiskt. ’KrigssĂ„ng’ Ă€r en dikt av Dan Andersson (inte den blinda ljudteknikern frĂ„n Kristinehamn tyvĂ€rr) som norrlĂ€ningarna tonsatt med fet orchpunk. Detta Ă€r en vĂ€rdig avslutning tycker jag. NĂ„gra av medlemmarna har ett nytt band som heter ’Misantropic’ som förmodligen kör samma stuk (fast Ă€nnu mer metal), blir till att spana in. Det Ă€r trĂ€d i vinterskrud pĂ„ omslaget förresten

 
Global domination, [written by The Abyss. Distributed by -]
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 “KrigssĂ„ng” 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)

It's a trap!, [written by Avi Roig. Distributed by -]
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 "KrigssÄng", 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.
 
Lords of Metal, [written by Erik. Distributed by -]
Personkrets 3:1 come from UmeÄ in the north of Sweden and was formed in the late winter of 2003. RÀkan 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!
 
My Last Chapter, [written by Kristoffer Persson. Distributed by -]
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 RĂ€kan’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. KrigssĂ„ng 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.
 
Joyzine, [written by Mikael Mjörnberg. Distributed by -]
Personkrets 3:1 tackar för sig, halar fanan och sÀtter punkt med tre kompositioner som lÄter mer metal Àn gruppen gjort nÄgonsin tidigare. Grunden av crust har flyttats allt lÀngre ner pÄ prioriteringslistan och fÄr egentligen bara fritt spelrum i titelspÄret. Det Àr synd att orkestern vÀljer att splittras nÀr det lÄter bÀttre Àn nÄgonsin.

Allra vassast Ă€r det i Dan Andersson-tonsĂ€ttningen KrigssĂ„ng (Ă€ven om jag av ren princip tycker att folk borde ge fan i den gamla skalden, snart har vĂ€l varenda medelmĂ„tta tolkat Ă„tminstone halva hans diktsamling) dĂ€r det sprutar metal om det forna punkgĂ€nget. Hela ”Ruiner”-sjuan Ă€r ett tydligt exempel pĂ„ att metal och punk i rĂ€tt utförande verkligen passar hand i hand.

Tre snabba projektiler (nÄvÀl, speltiderna drar ivÀg upp emot fyra minuter vid tvÄ tillfÀllen, ocksÄ det mer metal Àn punk) Àr ett vÀrdigt avslut för den hÀr gruppen. Anledningen till uppbrottet har jag ingen insikt i, men kanske har det med den nyfunna inriktningen att göra. Om Personkrets 3:1 kÀnner att de gjort sitt med punken kanske vi kan hoppas pÄ en nybildning i nÄgot annat format?

Right, hĂ€r har vi alltsĂ„ sista sucken frĂ„n Umepunxen och det Ă€r lĂ„gt ifrĂ„n kattskit kan jag sĂ€ga. Vi bjuds pĂ„ tre lĂ„tar, en med engelsk text och i de andra tvĂ„ gastas det pĂ„ svenska. Normalt sĂ€tt gillar jag de svensksjungna bidragen bĂ€st men denna gĂ„ng vinner ”Melting Ice” pĂ„ musikalisk knock out. Personkrets lĂ„ter som de brukar mer eller mindre. Lite mer metal kanske samt lite mĂ€rkliga trallstrebersvibbar i ”KrigssĂ„ng”, men jag antar att det skall vara lite ”folk” över musiken nĂ€r texten Ă€r av poeten Dan Andersson. Nu med facit i hand sĂ„ hĂ„ller jag fullĂ€ngdaren ”The Glorious Dead” samt demon ”Kampen Mot Livet" som de bĂ€sta plattorna jag har haft nöjet att recensera. Men, gillar du svensk kvallerĂ„punk med hyfsat eget stuk skall du helt klart tjacka sĂ„vĂ€l den hĂ€r vinylen som resten av snubbarnas slĂ€pp. Klart vĂ€rt!

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 förra Ă„rets fantastiska ”The glorious dead” bestĂ€mmer sig norrlĂ€nningarna i Personkrets 3:1 att helt sonika lĂ€gga ner verksamheten. Dock, innan dess ska det sista materialet prĂ„nglas ut, och det i form av trespĂ„rssingeln ”Ruiner”. Och allt gott i det. ”Melting ice”, ”KrigssĂ„ng” och just ”Ruiner” Ă€r om möjligt Ă€n mer apokalyptiska och olycksbĂ„dande Ă€n de tio spĂ„ren frĂ„n fullĂ€ngdaren. Det norrlĂ€ndska vemodet Ă€r allerstĂ€des nĂ€rvarande och lĂ€gger en extra dimension till den redan dystra crustmetallen Personkrets Ă€gnat sig Ă„t. Ett perfekt avslut pĂ„ en karriĂ€r, men samtidigt vĂ€cks en lĂ€ngtan efter mer. Mer, som alltsĂ„ inte finns. GĂ„ i frid, mina vĂ€nner!

Wow...I have listened to a lot of vinylsingles today and this is the one which have made me most happy today. ItÂŽs 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 pÄ mÄnga vinylsinglar idag och det Àr nog denna som gjort mig mest glad idag. Det Àr kanske inte sÄ att detta Àr den mest gladlynta skivan men jag tycker nog att det hÀr Àr den bÀsta idag. Personkrets spelar en typ av crustcore men jag tycker nog att det Àr mer Amebix Àn det Àr Anticimex och det skall de ha all heder av. Deras tunga musik Àr bland det bÀsta i Sverige just nu i denna genre.

Det hÀr Àr det sista vi hör frÄn Personkrets 3:1 trÄkigt nog, för de var ett enormt bra band. Men samtidigt Àr jag tacksam för att de slutar nÀr de ligger pÄ topp, och spelar in musik som knappast kommer att glömmas bort. Personkrets tackar för sig med tre lÄtar pÄ hÀrlig vinyl, och alla tre knÀcker genom gedigen produktion. NÄgra av medlemmarna fortsÀtter i Misantropic, sÄ hÄll 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 rÄpunk go hand in hand and the result is great.
