One of the best releases of 2021 in terms of hardcore punk in our humble opinion is this brand new EP by Indonesian hardcore punk band Crucial Response.
According to their label Greedy Dust Records:
“Crucial Response, the best hardcore punk band from Blitar, East Java, released their EP “The Puppets”. The Puppets is their third release after Plastic Society in 2017 and Mandated Demo in 2019. The Puppets consists of 5 toned songs full of terror which will be released on February 27, 2021. Crucial Response is released by two labels namely Greedy Dust Records and Menace Records in a limited form of tapes.”
