REVIEW: Empowerment – Gegen.Kult

Empowerment – Gegen.Kult

Digital Download 2012 Acuity.Music

The German Hardcore Band Empowerment has recently released a new album as digital download on Acuity.Music. Their sound goes back to the early days of hardcore and is mostly inspired by 80s hardcore: the songs are overall aggressive mid tempo hardcore songs with some metal influences. The vocals are raw, rough and in the German language. Gegen.Kult is no trendy album but that’s fine by me, but its also no high-flier, it will not set the world on fire. The most positive about this record and the band is that they don’t give a shit about what everybody thinks (and probably don’t care about this review) and just do what they do, the way they want to do it. I just got to respect that. 6,5/10
