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 hindre people who are fleeing for their lives. The constantly present everyday racism brewing under the surface. Simplified and stupified – Orwellian Newspeak and Doublethink.
In the music you can clearly hear inspiration from classic Swedish crust-punk bands such as Skitsystem , Disfear and Martyrdöd mixed together with tones of more melodic punk such as Asta Kask, Strebers and Lastkaj 14 . Sorrow and despair in a brutal and filthy dystopian package in key minor.
