“Fakecivil is an Indonesian thrash-metal band from Jakarta’s suburb, Bekasi. The city with the worst air quality in the country. Industrial area with more than 4,000 factories. 180,000 people are unemployed. 7,000 people earn a living from trash, literally. High crime rate. Terrorists are born there.
This condition greatly influences the way they play and approach music. Their collective experiences in witnessing it all translates into rough, raw, and intense musical output.
Fakecivil have just released their debut album “Resistensi Musik Bejat” on CD through Molotov Records and will be distributed digitally on Feb 7, 2020.
Through their debut, Fakecivil wants to respond to the increasingly repressive political situation in Indonesia through eight raw and aggressive thrash metal tracks. And along with the release of the album, they also released a zine entitled “Manifesto Musik Bejat” that elaborates various human rights violations in Indonesia, which is the basis of this album.”
