Unfortunately I couldn't get to post anything here during the last few days, but maybe it's for good, because right now I don't want to make political posts anyway. Better look at a couple of excellent albums which I found during these days, and let's start with this one:

"ANTLERS is a new band from Leipzig but the folks behind this outfit are not Germans, they are from Spain and Catalonia. Well, I’m a bit lost here but maybe the members, who played in such renowned acts like EKKAIA, COP ON FIRE or SANGRE DE MUERDAGO  (which are still active), live in Leipzig for some time…I don’t know. Whatever - these two songs proof again, that punks can play black metal. The music ranges from atmospheric midtempo black metal towards the fast stuff. Due to the highly left wing political background of their ex-bands it seems to be sure, that ANTLERS is another bm-band which is cool (aka antifascist) plus their music sounds fucking awesome. Really looking forward to hear more!" (MORBUS BLAST BEATS)

After reading all this, I naturally wanted to check out if this band really is as good as it was described. And yes, "A Gaze Into The Abyss" didn't disappoint me at all. I'm posting it without the band's permission, which rarely happens on my blog nowadays, so I think I shouldn't post the direct download link here. It's fully streamable on bandcamp and youtube anyway.

P.S. There's another good band with a similar name and somewhat similar sound - Antlers As Roots from Fort Wayne, IN. They released only one demo in 2012 and then put everything on hiatus. They're probably not anarchist or "red", but they're "green" for sure.
