Indonesian hardcore/powerviolence band Ravage was formed back in 2015, thus are celebrating their 5 year anniversary this year. The band initially began with the hopes of bridging hardcore, punk rock and fastcore together in order to create music with a punch. In that time the band released an EP Falling Apart in 2016 containing 6 tracks released on Tarung Records with support from our buddies in Here To Stay (Aca for life yo).
The band had some lineup changes and once that was settled, they dropped a new track Worthless Words last year. What a fucking RAGER.
They followed up that release this year with an intense music video so you get a peek into how explosive they are live:
Today the band has announced that they were approached by 2 overseas bands Lawfucker (Belfast, North of Ireland) and Feral State (Leicester, England) who were looking to release a 4 way split with some Indonesian bands. They were specifically looking for bands under the dbeat/fastcore/powerviolence tag and clearly, they fit that to a T. So Ravage and Krass Kepala will be the two Indonesian acts on this split project to be released by 4 collective labels spread across Europe on vinyl format. Lucky for you…both bands music is already streaming below. Yes – you can thank us later 🙂
More info later when pre-orders etc go up. Aside from that, the band is working on their debut full length…can’t wait!
