Jahanam Btistana (Hell Awaits) is the debut release by IKHRAS, a new band from Brighton and London. Five tracks of raging hardcore punk speedily exercise everything that the genre has to offer as a soundtrack to destroy colonialism. The lyrics are sung in Arabic and English, taking you on a journey of resistance against illegal occupation, religious control, western fragility and serves as an attack on ignorance rooted in liberal thinking. This is important.
Recorded, mixed and mastered by Sam Allen & Alessandro Cogolo at Small Pond
