PEREGRINE - THE AGRARIAN CURSE CD
PEREGRINE is what's described as an anarcho-primitivist band - which is a critque of civilisation and it's failure to provide a true existence for those living on this planet. They promote an alternative to the typical work, watch tv, die existence that infests most of society as we know it. Lyrics and short essays are provided to help you think for something other than the mundane life that you may already live. With that, they deliver their songs with passion, with thunderous metal riffage that incorporates crust, hardcore and an unrelenting burst of energy. Fast beats give way to more restful and melodic moments - but are soon shattered and brought back to the ungliness of what prevails. It's all done well and they are definitely worthy of your attention.
