DEZERTER: Mam kly mam pazury: LP

May 20, 2014

Dezerter are probably one of the best-known Polish hardcore bands to U.S. audiences because of the debut album that Maximum Rock’n’roll released in 1987. That album is long considered to be a classic and very important in the history of Polish underground music. This LP (of which the title translates to “I Have Fangs, I Have Claws”) is a re-issue of their eighth album and the first time to ever be pressed on vinyl. Musically, Dezerter’s sound embraces the raw and uncompromising metal-tinged hardcore aesthetic, with songs tackling environmental and vegetarian topics, all sung in Polish.
