There are 2 (or more) bands named Achilles.

1) Achilles from Rochester, New York, US.

2) Achilles from Oskarshamn, Sweden.
Achilles hails from the cold north of Europe – the small Swedish town Oskarshamn. The five piece group deliveres furious crust metal with d-beats mixed with crushing mosh and agressive, yet experimental, post rock.

The group consists of Michael Buskas (First Cut) on vocals, Michael Nilsson (ex. The Arson Project) on bass, Erik Nilsson (ex. Sick Rose & Matter of Fact) on drums with Tobias Andersson (ex. Sick Rose & Helvete) and Jimmie Asp both on guitar.

Early in 2010 the band (formerly known as Achilles Last Stand) released the full length Slittin’ Each Others Throats on Dead Vibrations Industry. The new name along with additions to the line-up resulted in a more defined Achilles sound. Still with the raw agression heard in acts such as His Hero Is Gone, Skitsystem and Converge, but nuanced and variated with influences from Mastodon, Neurosis, Cult of Luna and the post rock scene. The album featured 10 songs and included the single The Deadly Sleep along with explosive tunes like Chasing The Faith and Antidote.

Achilles played a number of shows throughout Scandinavia and also pulled off a tour in Europe together with The Arson Project before settling down to write songs for the next studio session.
In June 2011 the EP Spittin’ On A Unicorn was released. A 5 track EP with an even more raw edge to it, but still with room for experiments and explorations of the stranger melodies that is now a given in the dark Achilles sound.
