ABHINANDA is Straight Edge Hardcore band from Umeå, Sweden. ABHINANDA debuted with a 1993 EP 'Darkness Of Ignorance' through the Desperate Fight label, the custom imprint of singer José Saxlund. The band, with the newly recruited guitarist Kristofer Steen, undertook a winter tour of Norway, in alliance with REFUSED. Full-length album 'Senseless' followed in December 1994, promoted by a European tour. Once these dates were complete Kristofer Steen opted out to join REFUSED. Somewhat ironically, ABHINANDA drafted Pär, as substitute, also holding REFUSED credits.
