Swedish Knogjärn (Eng.: Knuckle-duster) is the in-your-face kind of Hard Rock, kicking ass from the very start. This is music that makes you want to crack open a beer, turn the volume to 11 and rock ‘til you f***ing drop. We are stoked to welcome one of the best Swedish Hard Rock bands to the Indie Recordings Family!


Listen to their amazing catalogue on:


Knogjärn comments: “We are proud to announce that we have signed with Indie Recordings (Kvelertak, Satyricon, Skambankt etc)! We are very happy for this opportunity and are looking forward to be working together.”

Erlend Gjerde, Managing Director at Indie Recordings comments: “In these dire times we all need some relief and what can better pick up our mood than some Swedish groove-metal? At Knogjärn`s place it`s always party time, so come-on in a join the fiesta!”


The unique sub-genre Swedish Hard Rock is something you’ve got to love. With its explicit Swedish lyrics, intense and energic live shows, and an emphasis on the “Hard” in Hard Rock. This is music that will pump you up and make you fight-ready to party extremely hard. And Knogjärn is all of this, and a bit more.

Since the start in 2015, Knogjärn has delivered hard hitting music with in-your-face attitude to a quickly and ever-growing crowd of fans, who has already started to cover themselves in Knogjärn tattoos. Their three studio records portray a band that always give 100%. It is raging anger, hard, and heavy. They sound great on record but deliver even more on stage; “We want you to like our live performance even if you don´t like our music”.


This fall, Knogjärn signed with Indie Recordings, and with that releasing “Kvarlevor” and re-releasing their latest album “Stora och Farliga”.

“Kvarlevor” is a collection of all their stand-alone singles throughout the career, out today!
The re-release of “Stora och Farliga” includes the brand-new track “Älskar Ingen”, that fits perfectly with the rest of the album. Adding an extra track wasn’t a difficult task for the creative and productive Knogjärn; “It wasn’t hard writing a new song in the same style since it wasn’t too long ago that we released the album” comments the band.

We're looking forward to releasing "Stora och Farliga" with the new track on December 2!
