- "This music is filled with so much energy, and the lyrics with so much anger, that it instantly starts a reaction within the listener. And before you know it your teeth are grinding and your fists are bleeding as you clench them so hard. /../ Protestera manages to make me wanna make a change! /../ Easily the best stuff from Protestera, and I'd recommend it to any fan of punk, anarchopunk, hardcore and crust."
So, pick up your copy today! You can get it from here of from our distributor Sound Pollution. If your local recordstore doesn¬īt have this one in stock, make them order it from Sound Pollution.
