To all fans of Leper: here's another band playing a mix of ska/punk and blackened crust, with lyrics based on pretty much the same green anarchist ideology. Let The World Die are an anarcho-punk band from Flagstaff, AZ, all whose members have Navajo & Hopi/Tewa ancestry, and two of them come from a Navajo Indian Reservation. Their ideology is mostly based on Indigenous American traditionalism, with elements of eco-anarchism and even anarcho-primitivism, and their music is a mix of ska, epic melodic crust, black metal, sludge, and classic punk. "At the Road of Ruin" is their first official DIY recording, which is of course officially available for free download.

They also run a local infoshop mostly for the need to have a space to organize against the desecration of the San Francisco Peaks in the community, and other recently pressing issues around the area. After a quick look on their site, I can say I like this particular brand of national liberation activism (of whatever you may call it) more and more. Such set of beliefs, as seems to me, can also be found in other Native American metal bands like Aztra, Yaotl Mictlan, Resistant Culture, the whole Black Twilight Circle, as well as in movements like EZLN (which is probably the only respectable guerrilla movement left in all Latin America).


  1. Only had one play through but I absolutely love this album. Thanks much!

  2. I still remember feeling a gaping hole in my heart when I found out Leper was broken up... This band filled it and then some. Hope they go keep up the good shit for a long time.

  3. Broken link friends :(
