HARAM- When You Have Won You Have Lost LP
Guttural and furious, the debut LP from HARAM delivers 10 songs of unflinchingly political hardcore punk. With a sound rooted in Coastal US hardcore from the last Cold War but with a more contemporary militaristic swagger, Nader's Arabic vocals growl out over pounding martial rhythms and interlocked, frenetic melodies. This record alternates between forward march and full gallop in what has become their trademark sound. Hand silk-screened cover w/ 18x24 poster and a risographed booklet providing both Arabic and English translations of the lyrics.
