Mata Mata - demo (2010)

MATA MATA "demo"

Year: 2010
Genre: Raw Crust
Country: USA

Track List:
  1. Brutalized
  2. Fucking Order
  3. Ghettos & Jails
  4. Houseraid
  5. Hellbells
  6. Paralized
  7. Life-Denied

I'm posting this demo only because Mata Mata (which means "Kill Kill", I presume) are connected to Black Twilight Circle, the revolutionary black metal collective based out of Los Angeles. Can't say I fully understand their ideology, so I won't post here other their releases right now - but as far as I know, almost all of them are huge fans of crust punk, and some of them consider themselves "mystical anarchists".

According to other sources, their ideology is more close to Native American nationalism (see this, for example)... but you know, "nationalism" is a very vague term. Yaotl Mictlan are also said to be pro-Native American nationalism and anarcho-friendly at the same time, but I don't see anything wrong with their ideology so far (and their music is excellent, by the way). If YM are nationalistic, then all folk metal bands (and folk music in general) are nationalistic by this logic...

Anyway, back on topic. This release isn't bad for a first demo, but nothing remarkable either - just very raw crust punk. Most of you will probably like it anyway, but don't except it to be strongly BM-influenced.
