New Blood! POLIS-ÄCKEL, DARK ERA, and MIRRORED LIPS


March 31st, 2016 by

“New Blood” is our weekly feature spotlighting new bands from around the world! See below for info on how to submit. Now, check out some killer new shit…

LOGO

Artwork by Francesco Goat

Band name:
POLIS-ÄCKEL

Date & location formed:
We started rehearsing infrequently in late 2014. We live in the Marche region, in Italy.

Reason for forming:
Our aim was to create our own d-beat band, just a few distorted chords without much musical finesse. Loud and noisy to the max, with angry as fuck lyrics and vocals. We were moved by the noisier releases of bands such as Disclose, Electric Funeral, Maquina Muerta, Frigora and so on… We chose a swedish band name for a d-beat
‘tribute,’ it means “disgust for police.”

What are your lyrics about?
Our lyrics address violent reactions to police repression and the fascist state of the system. Utilizing anarchist ideology as a foundation on which to build upon ruins of these rotting world.

How would you describe your sound?
We would like to make our sound the more noisy and as aggressive as possible. No musical skill, just anger and distortion.

What’s in the future for this band?
We have planned a 7″ release with Imminent Destrucion records from UK for next summer. Then, play around a bit and let’s see what will happen next.

Band name:
DARK ERA

Date & location formed:
Before summer solstice 2014. St. Johns Newfoundland.

Reason for forming:
We’ve all known each other and been in bands together for so long. wanted to play music we wanted to play. Started out with a few riffs we had kicking around for a while then went from there.

What are your lyrics about?
Cosmic, spiritual, and emotional warfare. Astral catalepsy. Astral projection. inter-dimensional entities and ancestral demons. Reincarnation.
Space. Time. Life. Change. Instinct.
Basic survival. Dark age trials and tribulations.

How would you describe your sound?
Trotting through desolate barrens in the blinding fog. blackened d-beatish punk.

What’s in the future for this band?
Getting ready to release ” Nightscapes” EP. Recording new full length within the next few months. Also in the process of writing an album of mantras in combination with sigils.

Band name:
MIRRORED LIPS

Date & location formed:
April 2015, Nizhny Novgorod, Russia.

Reason for forming:
We were recording the piano and vocals for our free-jazz project and recorded a punk album in some spare half hour of the booked time. Got our kicks. Were hooked right away.

12443146_10208829391914799_1345256061_n

What are your lyrics about?
We sing of death to pigs, the premature aging of baristas, Television the band, our ninety-year-old friend, and of the tough life that small insects have to plug through in a big city.

How would you describe your sound?
One girl took a car and crashed the drums, the other plugged in her guitar and fell off a cliff into the sea, the third one came afterwards and deeply sighed.

What’s in the future for this band?
Plug through in this huge thing of a World.
