YOOOOOOOOOOO…this is what we’re talking about. Since our inception, back in 2015, we’ve always said Indonesia is a literal hotbed of Asian hardcore. It makes FULL sense that the bands that release music there HAVE to be super fucking good because of the sheer number of hardcore bands that reside there – for any band to cut through the madness, they really REALLY have to stand out. Bands like Bleach, Outrage, Crucial Response, Wanderlust, Zip, etc who’ve released new material this year and of course legends like Straight Answer, etc. are all case in point.
Add Ravage to that list of fucking INCREDIBLE hardcore bands that you need to keep yourself on top of. The band recently released a 4-way split record and much like Japan, Indonesian bands want to promote the purchase of PHYSICAL releases first. So the physical release hits stores for a couple of months to encourage people to buy those and THEN finally the music makes it to streaming platforms. Ravage’s quick 3 tracks off that split are up now and they fucking…well…ravage.
The real good news is that the band states these tracks will resurface on the DEBUT album out soon! STOKED!!!!
