Record Of The Day #3: JARADA – Ma'agal Sina'a 12"
Isreali based hardcore that offers up some hard hitting hardcore with lyrics in Hebrew, that are political and personal dealing with issues cultural-political issues. The lyric sheet containing lyrics in both hebrew and english. This is powerful hardcore that comes with hard hitting lyrics. I have highlighted this record as one it and its predecessor which we had in the distro a few ago are both great but they also have a new 3rd 12" coming out 'No Co-Existence With... Jarada'Listen:
Blurb: After a debut full-length record a year ago Jarada already crafted eight new brickwalls for a new one sided 12″!
This Israeli band from Tel Aviv continues to deliver angry, punching and chaotic music to the table, with some really bleak and negative overtones that are intertwined with hebrew lyrics that are mixture of personal thoughts with some politics thrown in!
Ma’agal Sina’a means “A Circle of Hate” in hebrew and is a natural follow up to the earlier S/T 12″ and it deals with several issues which you can consider as “current events” from the past year and it also digs deeper into the emotional struggles and choices one needs to make to keep his or her shit together. On the one hand it may seem more cultural-political with songs like “Monopoly on Suffering” and “A Jewish State is a Circle of Hate” and on the other hand way more personal, with a self questioning and soul searching (“Riddance”, “I Was in the Army”).
As on the first record, you can expect fierceful vocals, chrushing hardcore riffs and plenty scraps of everything thats great about heavier side of punk music in the last decade.
