a2878937195_10Kapakmens – Anarhija
digital/CD 2015 DIY

Kapakmens are a punk/metal band from Latvia. Recently they released their second album Anarhija (Eng. – Anarchy).

Based the album title and the artwork I thought that the music from Kapakmens would be mostly punk inspired, but that’s not totally the case here. Not that I’m a punk authority or something like that. To me, it mostly sounds as death metal combined with punk. Lyrically the songs deal with topics that are mostly related to punk music: criticism on organized religion, our society, militarism, violence are warfare, privacy and freedom, animal rights, capitalism and modern slavery, …

Anahija by Kapakmens is soul food for the death metal fan with a punk heart. 7/10
