LEIDKULTUR: For a Better World: EP

May 17, 2013

Mid-tempo punk from Germany here. There’s a heaviness to their sound, but not in the typical crust or metal way. A good bit of low end helps these songs move with force. I like the slightly distorted sound of the bass, as it gives their sound some teeth, with the guitars right underneath. Lyrically, they present interesting view points that ask real questions and steer clear of black and white statements. It could be a result of growing older, as they mention in the description to “Hoffnung.” But they question social values, conspiracy theorists, and society’s overall lack of seeing things as they really are.
