about

Anti- Colonial Vol. 1
“Anti-Colonial Vol. 1” The latest album by La Armada, sees the band honing in on their musical identity and finally capturing the energy of their live shows on record. After years of absorbing elements from the multi-genre bills they played both in the national underground scene as well as in the major touring circuit , the objective was clear but not easy; to utilize the elements of hardcore that first drew them to the genre while adding the Caribbean rhythms that make them unique.

The result is 11 tracks of a tasteful crossover between the hardcore punk they grew up with and the lively grooves commonly heard in latin percussion, something seldom explored successfully in heavy music. The songs range from fast and heavy to crushing down tempo beats, toppled with witty lyrics that touch on the socio-economic barriers that stagger the working class of today.

Track Name: Unquenchable
Cannibalistic by nature,
There’s no food that can satisfy
The hunger, the greed;
It’s unquenchable.

Vicious appetite... for profit
There’s no food that can satisfy,
And the greed
Is unquenchable.

¿Quién promueve la xenofobia?
¿Quién lucra del odio racial?
El infierno, prisión para inmigrantes...
Fresh blood keeps feeding the complex.

Prisons get filled with innocent lives
South at the border
They’re building a wall
For Profit!
For Profit!
For Profit.

And the greed is unquenchable.

¿Quién promueve la xenofobia?
¿Quién lucra del odio racial?
El infierno, prisión para inmigrantes...
Fresh blood keeps feeding the complex.

South at the border
They’re building a wall
For Profit!
For Profit!
For Profit.

Immigrant blood more fuel to feed the complex.
Track Name: Fire
Who justifies the atrocities with scapegoats?
Piece by piece, you craft a fascist state:
With bibles, with kerosene,
With crosses and gasoline.
Fire!
The time has come.
Burning down your stupidity
We will refuse this fate
We will!
Who glorifies the futility of nations?
As they inhale to fill their lungs with hate
With bibles, with kerosene,
With crosses and gasoline.
Fire! Fire!
Burn.
From right to left and back to right again
Fascist state on the brink of complete destruction
We will react against
We will!
We get the leaders we deserve.
Fire!
The time has come!
Burning down your stupidity
We will refuse this fate
From right to left and back to right again
Fascist state on the brink of
Complete destruction
We will react against
We will!
Now we will refuse this fate.
Now we will defy.
Now we will refuse this fate.
Now we…
Defy!
