Woah – you been missing that Propagandhi fury? Check out Turkish melodic punk band Padme on their brand new full length.
Padme was formed in 2016 and have released 1 EP “Re-Vizyon” (2016) and two full-length albums Bugün (2017), IBAN TR75 0006 2000 7170 0006 (2018). In August 2019, “The Fine Line Between Being Conscious And Self Harm”, Padme’s third studio album, was recorded in Israel at Street Music Studio. After nearly one year of complications, the album was finally released in May 2020 from Mevzu Records (TR) and Punk & Disorderly Records (CA).
This record is more diverse and polished than their previous records, with the addition of the new guitarist adding a whole new dimension to the band’s sound. Every member of the band writes songs and sings actively this time around, making it their most varied and energetic record. The songs are about topics such as hope and despair, joy and anger, and life and death. The record has influences from a plethora of genres including melodic hardcore, garage punk, and even psychedelic rock this time around. It’s also a remarkably fast album, with the only slow song being cut from the record due to complications in the recording process.
