If you’re a fan of loud fast Swedish hardcore then Ett Dödens Maskineri is the next band to add to your radar. Today Dying Scene is proud to premiere this killer new lyric video set to the imagery of humanitarian disassociation. Swedish lyrics to the tune of humanist ideology, the denunciation of demagogues, and a revulsion at catalytic ethnocentrism clouding a society based on fear and distress clamor with a ruthless form of crust punk sure to set any circle pit to motion, and any questioning mind to wonder for compassion amidst “Sweden’s Humanitarian Ruins”.
Sveriges Humanitära Ruiner is the new EP out on Suicide Records, released October 17. It’s available on streaming services with order info available here soon. Stream the new music video for “Leviatan” below. (ffo: NOFU, Discharge, (Late) Falling Sickess)
Info from press kit:
AN EMPATHETIC KNOCKOUT! With their melodic yet raw punk approach ETT DÖDENS MASKINERI unmasks the disowned and twisted social climate we live under today. Humans and their value being sacrificed for constant and relentless economic growth. Right wing rhetoric getting traction in our everyday life. The dismantling of the welfare system and the pillars of our society. The idealization of individual and personal success at the expense of the collective and fair distribution of wealth. Demagogues that incite and taunts, authoritarian men that take the place as the new alpha leaders of humanity. Religious fanaticism, anti-feminism and the war against women and the LGBT community. Nationalism, populism and the love for walls and fences meant to hinder people who are fleeing for their lives. The constantly present everyday-racism brewing under the surface. Simplified and stupefied – Orwellian newspeak and double-think.
The EP “Sveriges Humanitära Ruiner” was born out of a sense of loss and an underlying frustration. It’s a wish to tear down, re-build and create a more humane, equal and inclusive society. The lyricism will not hand you a sugar coated and cozy consensus but rather knuckled fists, bruises and a huge dose of the resentment we feel against the society of today.
In the music you can clearly hear inspiration from classic Swedish crust-punk bands such as Skitsystem, Disfear, Anti-Cimex mixed together with tones of more melodic punk such as Asta Kask and Strebers. Sorrow and despair, all in a brutal and filthy 5 track dystopian package in minor key.
