Dodeskaden is a hardcore band from Nyköping south of Stockholm, Sweden, they formed in 2004 and "Matklos" is their first demo (cd-r & tape). It consists of five tracks with female and male shouting vocals and d-beat hardcore. No something extraordinary or a novelty but good enough to rock you, about 400 of it were sold.
The name Dodeskaden comes from the japanese filmdirector Akira Kurosawa´s first ever colormovie with the same name, it´s a tragicomical portray of the slums of Tokyo. It is pronounced "Dough-dess ka-then".
A text of band taken from this page:
"Dodeskaden started out in early 2004 in Nyköping south of Stockholm by Klas, Hello, Sebastian & Dennis. With that constellation we recorded our first demo entitled "Maktlös". ("Powerless" in translation) It was the first time ever both Klas and Sebbe were in a band so it also sounded there-after!
In the sumer of 2004 Hello & Klas moved back to Luleå in the north of Sweden and at the same time Dennis quit the band to focus on his reggaeband. We soon found a new guitarist in Goken, a guy from southern Sweden who studied in Luleå, and we soon recorded our second demo entitled "När ingenting längre spelar nån roll". ("When nothing at all makes any difference" in translation) From the beginning this was meant to be our debut 7", but as things hardly ever turns out the way you want them to so didn´t this one! Instead we planned to take 3 of the songs for our split with Guantanamo Bay instead. But things got delayed and both Sebastian and Goken quit the band, so we decided to make a demo out of it instead. (At this point the recording was nearly one year old!) After that we found a new guitarist in David and a new singer in Hannes, together we recorded 3 songs for a compilation and 4 songs for the Guantanamo Bay split. But shortly after Hannes decided to quit too, and David took over his vocals. So thats our lineup today, and we recently recorded songs for a split with the D-beat maniacs Sprängd"
