Crashdiet (Sweden) A leading force in the Swedish “sleaze rock” scene of the 2000s ? a revival of the glam metal (or hair metal) of the 1980s, but with a more pronounced punk element, often rawer in sound and raunchier in style ? CRASHDÏET formed in 2000, taking inspiration from Skid Row, Guns N’ Roses, Kiss, W.A.S.P., and G.G. Allin, and vowing to bring back the big shows and big songs of “unpredictable and dangerous” rock & roll.
In April of 2010 they released their third album entitled “Generation Wild”, a masterpiece that pretty much sums up the extraordinary but yet tragic history of a band, determined to never give up their dream.
CRASHDÏET has become known as a band with a huge following of diehard fans, and although its their third time around with a new singer (Simon Cruz), the massive interest for the band never seems to fade.

The musicians are an enviable collection of members of pioneering, internationally reknowned Aussie metal bands (such as Damaged, Manticore, House of Thumbs, The Berzerker, Abramelin) who just cant help but to play the tunes tough.
