"David Sandström (born January 2, 1975) is the drummer for hardcore punk group Refused. After Refused broke up David and the other members of Refused worked on a project entitled TEXT and released one album. Then David went on to do solo work. In 2008 he formed the hardcore punk band AC4 with Refused frontman Dennis Lyxzén, playing bass guitar.

Sandström states that before Refused formed he was a "glue-sniffing death metal kid" but eventually a fan of Step Forward, the embryo of Refused. As Step Forward called it quits and the friendship between Sandström and Dennis Lyxzén grew stronger, Lyxzén took him home and made him listen to Youth of Today's We're Not in This Alone album over and over again in a room alone.

After Refused's demise, Sandström formed his own band, David Sandström Overdrive. His first release under his own name was called Om det inte händer nåt innan imorgon så kommer jag.. (If nothing happens before tomorrow, I am going to...). Om det is about David's grandfather, and was sung in Swedish. The second album, The Dominant Need of Needy Soul Is to Be Needed was released in 2004. His third album is Go Down! and was released in May 2005 under the name David Sandström Overdrive. In October 2008 the fourth album was released, titled Pigs Lose on Razzia Records."

descriptions, reviews, &c.

"One-sided EP with screen print on B-side.

No two FIRE! records sound the same, but with Requies they venture into uncharted territory. Musically ever expanding and no strangers to collaborations, FIRE! this time team up with no other than the one and only Stephen O'Malley from Sunn O))) and David Sandstrom from legendary Swedish hardcore punk band Refused for a truly epic 21-minute ebb and flow journey starting with church bells and ending in a whirlwind of postpunk energy. Spellbinding stuff.

Flip it over and discover the stunning silk screen print courtesy of Kim Hiorthoy on the B-side. Strictly limited to 1000 numbered copies."-Rune Grammofon

"The basic strategy of pairing the expressive energy of free jazz with a sturdy sense of groove has yielded something potent and self-contained" (New York Times)


Limited Edition of 1000 copies.
