Attaktix - "Demo Tape '15"

Year: 2015
Genre: Crust/D-Beat Hardcore Punk
Country: Lithuania

Track List:

  1. Uniformed Freedom
  2. Humanity
  3. Reason
  4. Mass Extinction
  5. Warzone

Attaktix begins their 2015 demo with four seconds of silence and then with a quick build-up to fast, hardcore anarcho-punk right out of Lithuania, home of famous anarchist Emma Goldman. For all you black metal fans out there, if you don't mind the faster pace of punk, this is a must-hear! Their first track Uniformed Freedom carried a harder, faster yet just as hardcore sound comparative to anarcho-punk band The Profits, yet also without female vocals and much darker. Their second track Humanity has vocals that are less intensive with a drained despair echoing through them while the music carries the singer through a slightly less fast track where the drummer does not want to slow down.

Their third track, Reason begins with a much slower tempo, but the singer sounds briefly revived from his drained despair. The song does pick up speed, but enough to equate to the first track. Regardless, the third track is a good listen as you begin to hear the band's raw power in their screaming chorus. Their fourth track, Mass Extinction, begins off with a very metal sound with very metal vocals that declares the band absolutely within the realm of black metal, though the band begins to yearn for the fast pace of punk and carries off with it while still carrying that love of metal along with them as their power chords come into play.

Last but not least, their track Warzone builds quickly with an Oi! hardcore anarcho-punk sound akin to their first track which reminds me of a non-anarchist Oi! punk bands like Agnostic Front or Warzone (the band) if they played anarcho-punk with power chords and sang a little black metal.
