Founded in 1991 in Umeå, Sweden, hardcore punk legend Refused is widely regarded as one of the most influential rock bands of the early '00s.
The 5-track-EP "The Malignant Fire" contains the singles "Born On The Outs" and "Malfire" from last year's "War Music" album, as well as three brand new songs. "Born On The Outs" is an interpolation of the Swedish House Mafia classic "Greyhound" (158 million streams on Spotify alone). Not only has the band recorded a house/EDM hit in the typical "Refused" style, but for the first time the song contains lyrics written by Dennis & David of Refused and released by Swedish House Mafia. This genre crossover resulted in a musical explosion.
