Ambulance-What a wonterful word (demo 2001)

Ambulance started in Umea, Sweden back in 2001 and this is their first demo. They started as female fronted band (guitars were played by girls too), the next year (2002) they released the st 7" and in 2004 the " The End of our Time" lp saw the light of day. In 2006 they released a split 7" w Derrota and the 'Dawn of a New Beginning 7", they also appeared in several compilations including Norrland D-beat.
What a wonterful word consists of four tracks that last for about ten minutes and deliver a raw version of their s/t ep that came out one year later: Raging crusty Swedish hardcore. The lady who sings has a strong voice, the sound is raw and noisy and there are some hints of black metal that will apear in their next recording adding some more darkness
They seem to have abandoned they myspaceshit, in their '06 releases vocals duties were handled by Sylen the guy who was and is in a million other bands, in 2002 they recorded another demo tape (anyone has seen it around?)

Hi! The "Demotape" your talking about is a compilationtape with various lesser known bands from the UmeƄscene at that period of time, Ambulance is featured with one song from the demo above.
