• SIAL - Self Titled 12"EP (Restock)
LA VIDA ES UN MUS RECORDS
Hailing from South East Asia, Singapore, SIAL's blistering abrasive, loud and primitive sounding hardcore encompasses exactly what it is to be Sial! (DAMNED in English) A swear word in Bahasa Melayu (Malay), SIAL sings in the language of Singapore's indigenous minority, and challenge a culture and language generally said to be gentle and polite. Commonly described as an idle and passive people until the colonisation of Singapore by the British, SIAL takes back a power stripped away by centuries of imperialism and lies.
Their hardcore takes props from the ferocity of early DISORDER output mixed with a singer who without doubt has had COMES debut album on repeat or even DIRT's early single on CRASS. Their rhythm section works relentlessly to create a mix of mid 90’s Japanese crasher crust and second wave UK punk creating one of the most powerful records we've heard in a long time.
SIAL's debut record comes housed in a heavy reverse-board sleeve and includes a lyric insert and download code.
