NIKMAT OLALIM: Self-Devouring Land: 7” EP

Israeli hardcore with lyrics condemning the Israeli government, conscription, shitty jobs, and blindly following ideologies. The inside of the cover also includes two essays, one about how the concept of anti-Semitism is abused by Israeli hardliners and the government to justify its actions, and another entitled “Did You Ever Think What It’s Like to Shoot Somebody in the Head?” No doubt this release is sure to cause quite a stir in the band’s home country. Much respect to them for having the balls to be a political punk band in a place where having a point of view that doesn’t follow the party line could render a person very dead.
