“leftist millennial assholes go fuck yourself with your crap music”
This is one of those projects I love to promote because of there sheer amount of talking points. Publications will have a field day with this one, for better or worse. Extinction is an aggressively environmentally conscious slam band that weaves samples into the chaotic music to tell a story. Their new album Smouldering Enfoulment is a natural continuation of their 2019 demo Anthropogenic Degradation of Ecosystemic Vegetation and the amount of progression made since last year is very impressive. From the composition to the production, this is a chunky album that delivers on it’s promise to crusade for nature.
“This EP encapsulates a variety of disasters, degradations and extinctions of 2019. From trees lost to sand mining and bird species loss to habitat destruction, and international conflagrations wiping out landscapes and exploited by monoliths of power.”
One of the most interesting aspects of the project is their recycled merch showing a level of commitment to their message that many other bands shrug off. Every bit of merch produced by Extinction is DIY, as in, they go out to thrift stores to find shirts and cassettes to record over and stamp their own logo over. Every purchase made is it’s own quest!
