APRIL 2012: NEW ALBUM "DIAGNOS" - summer 2012!

In end of April we will go to Hoborec studio and start the recording of our third album.
This will be the first recording we do since the recording of the ep's Industrilandskap and Scm/M:40 split in 2008, so it feels really great to finally record our new songs.

This will be our hardest, fastest, slowest and most brutal record ever!
The title of the new album will be "DIAGNOS", and it will be released this summer 2012, by Halvfabrikat Records.


We're happy to announce that M:40 are confirmed for this years Obscene Extreme, together with NASUM, WOLFBRIGADE, DISCHARGE, POISON IDEA and more. See you there!!

22 February 2011: STILL ALIVE!

It has been very quite from us from time to time, and the truth is that we've been taking things a bit slow with the band.
We have the plans and really want to do a new album. But we have a lot of other things going on besides the band, and some times you don't have as much time as wanted.
But we'll see, a new album will hopefully be presented in a while!
Now we have a few shows coming up, Eskilstuna (March 4) and Skoghall (April 1).
Will be great!


We had to move the website to another server, so I did a few changes to it.
We will now have more space to upload stuff, so I uploaded a lot more Mp3's for you to download. You find them at

5 Dec 2008: HUGE UPDATE!

We have been really bad on updating this site the last months, sorry for that. And now we got a few things to let you know about, if you don't allready know.

Finland/russia tour
We have booked five dates in Finland and Russia in January, we'll do those shows together with the Finnish grindcore/crust band Büfo. This will be really cool, looking forward to it!
Check the dates at gigs!

New split ep
When we recorded the Industrilandskap Ep we also recorded three songs that didn't end up on that record.
These songs will be on a 7" ep split together with our friends Sand Creek Massacre from Holland. It will be released by Halvfabrikat, Headnoise and Ravachol and expect it to be out in somewhere between 2008/2009.

Germany dates
We have four dates in April booked in Germany together with Swedish End Of All. This will be really fun!

Summer Festivals
We are allready booked for three festivals this summer.
Be-part Festival 6 in Stuttgart, Germany.
Packebusch Festival, Germany
Obscene Extreme Festival in Czech Republic.

There is a new Punk/Hardcore compilation out now called Sverigemangel and we have one song included on it.
It's a previously unreleased song called "Förvriden Ideologi". Actually its not a very new song, its from the same recording as the split "M:40/grace.will.fall" with Innanför Muren from 2006.
Its a lot of bands and unreleased tracks on it, totally 18 bands and 39 songs.
This record was supposed to be released a long time ago, but now it's here.
We have a few copies of it
for sale in our shop if you might be interested!

Hope to see you on the shows!
