Police Bastard has been influenced by many different bands ranging from the likes of Discharge/Chaos UK to Amebix, Rudimentary Peni, Celtic Frost, Black Sabbath, The Cardiacs, Killing Joke. This makes up a dark, agressive hardcore sound without losing power or focus. Risen from the ashes of Britian’s largest hardcore thrash bands: Doom, Sore Throat, Filthkick, Sensa Yuma and Contempt, Police Bastard was born in May of 1994. In a year and a half they stacked up a staggering number of gigs and a large following.

“Police Bastard – Traumatized LP – Like a demonic Black Bloc storming the stock exchange with baseball bats, this album belts out of the speakers and storms around the room taking no prisoners.” – Peppermint Iguana
