NEEDFUL THINGS - Judgment

Info


It is a pleasure to announce this band! Legendary iconic old school grind core blast from Pardubice. Who would not know NEEDFUL THINGS! The band that was present at the birth of the Obscene Extreme Festival and even played at its first volume in 1999. So, it makes sense to have their set in 2018 at the OEF's "Back to 1999" again.

The formation of NEEDFUL THINGS goes back to 1995 and not only a lot of time has passed since but this squad has still a lot to offer even after more than 20 years. They are still a great inspiration to many beginning grind bands and are still productive as for new and brutal recordings. Their latest plans for a split record with the bands such as Overviolence or Nervegrind be the proof!!!

Bio

1995
We start new band NEEDFUL THINGS. Before we played with Roman in one Death Metal band. But we wanted to play Grind Core so we started NEEDFUL THINGS. First name was DISCORD. But we found one band with the same name in Bulgaria so we decided to use NEEDFUL THINGS. Its Stephen Kings book. We really like his books with our first vocalist Majkl. NEEDFUL THINGS has started in ’95 with this line-up: Martin - drums, Roman - guit, Michael - vocals, Otto - bass.  We had problem to find drummer. Our first drummer played with us just 3 months.
