For those of you into the punk and grindcore side, two new albums have been released this week as free downloads.
The first is called 'Jamat-al-mort' from Lahore's 'Multinational Corporations' (essentially Sheraz Ahmed from Dionysis with vocalist Hassan Dozakhi). Recorded in just four days, this 8 track album is true to grindcore's essential basics - very loud, very short and very angry!
Venting their frustration at the media, government, capitalism and extremism in Pakistan, a lot of us here in the West can identify with their protests. This pulls no punches, and is one to be played very very loud!
