“If we’re to move forward as a nation
I think that it’s time we said bye religion”
Yo man…this brand new EP released by Indian hardcore punk band The Riot Peddlers fully smokes anything the band has released in the past. This new direction is angry, aggressive, and urgent, which comes across loud and clear in the music and certainly in the lyrics. The band pulls NO punches in these 5 songs.
Indian hardcore currently continues to not be a very big group of bands…definitely pales in comparison to the mammoth scene that is the Indian metal community…but of those few bands these are the ones that we feel fucking rule…mainly because the bands aren’t copying and pasting any of their influences, but instead, are creating their own sound:
and with this release…we’d definitely add The Riot Peddlers to that group…
Don’t want to hijack this post…but one of the best “hardcore” related South Asian releases HAS to be by Pakistan-based grindcore band Multinational Corporations – anyone else feel this??? That release is un-fucking-believable…
Anyway…go blast The Riot Peddlers and get in touch with the band!
