Régimen - 'Insurrección del Sur' (video + English subtitles))

Some more stuff from Colombia; this time it's a leftist thrash metal band from Villavicencio, called Regimen. They're closely associated to the Colombian "Red Metal" movement. Here's an English translation of their song "Insurrecion del Sur" from their eponymous demo EP. As you can see, they're supporting a libertarian socialist revolution and the rights of indigenous South American people, who were especially hard hit by the Colombian civil war. Yes, the quality of their recording and the vocal work is far from perfect, but it's only the first demo, and they don't have such money and resources as major European and North American metal bands have.
