Encompassing everything from black metal to straight-forward heavy metal, Death Tribe’s debut record, Beyond Pain and Pleasure: A Desert Experiment, captures the pain of living amid war-torn Beruit. Today. We’re stoked on their sound and decided to make them Bandcamp of the day.
Anthony Kaoteon says about their first single, “Neurotic Breakdown,” “This track is complex, technical, and intense, as it represents the stage in life when one realizes they were forced into this pit and left to deal with its atrocities. We don’t choose where we are born. Black, white, yellow, Arab, or Jew, some of us are born in war-torn countries, others in below-poverty areas. Even those born with a silver spoon in their mouth are still battling their own demons, because everything is about perspective. However, most people don’t realize that, and the only way to escape reality is through substances that create an even more complex, schizoid world that is out of control. We blame others, if not ourselves, and hate everyone and everything around us instead of accepting that we can influence change through our choices, accept ourselves and the differences of others. Hate feeds on hate. Start by accepting your reality and grow to accept others.”
