RATAPUNKS, LAS: Fracaso 2020, Año de la Rata: 7” EP

Jan 05, 2022

Fierce and politically charged hardcore from Peru. As this is playing I’m conjuring up thoughts of bands like Slovenia’s Tozibabe gone hardcore and Brazil’s Infect without the youth crew influence. Also brings to mind a local band from years ago named Bruise Violet. As direct as a punch in the face and with lyrics just as impactful. Punk Peru in the house! –Juan Espinosa (Amok / Kibou / No Front Teeth / lasratapunks.bandcamp.com)
