Ahna, as prolific as ever, is releasing another split, this time a 7" with Swedish D-Beat band Contorture.  As before, neither is particularly blackened.  Both have some political leanings which fit well with this blog.  I believe both the music and politics are of interest to the readers of this blog and worth supporting.  Ahna shows a really aggressive streak with Living in Fear (including a beautiful buzzing guitar attack) and then turns a little slower, drawing on more of their death influences for Terrorized.  Contorture brings a self-described "feminist fury" to their angry, fast d-beat attack.  They featured somewhat fuzzed out guitar work and a vicious double vocal attack.  This was my introduction to them, and it leaves me wanting to hear more.

The Ahna side can be downloaded from their Bandcamp, but for the moment, you can only stream the Contorture side.  I'll add a download link when I receive it.  In the meantime, I'll link to both Bandcamp pages.  Hayduke X
