Maladie – “Maladie” – [Great Plains Records]
Melodic anarcho-punkers, Maladie, bring on the aggression and frustration of being a youth and living on the boarder of America and Mexico. With songs that speak of the mistreatment and tyranny of the U.S. government and the corruption of Mexico’s system, this isn’t your typical straight-up punk record. They seem to mass three or four different riffs into one song, resulting in an album that moves along in a more beautiful way then most punk albums do. With elements of power violence, hardcore, and early East coast emo (don’t be judging!) to their mix.This Tijauna foursome is a force to be reckoned with. TEAR DOWN THE FUCKING WALLS, MAN!
