Pazahora from Singapore is one of those many bands coming from all over the world that play the so called neo-crust in the veins of Tragedy, Remains of the Day and Wolfbrigade. Their CD comes in a digipack with a decent artwork in typical style for the kind of music and message they deliver with their tunes. The record starts with a spoken word narrative over an acoustic intro, telling about the sweatshops in South-East Asia and the horrors of neo-liberalist capitalism relentlessly exploiting the people and еnvironment all over the globe. What follows are 3 straight up d-beat songs - "Bullshit Generators", "Dogs of War", "No Peaceful Solution" - not unlike the sound of "Allday Hell" by Wolfpack. Then we have 3 more songs - "Fallen Society" (my favorite), "Human Error", and "Profits of Doom" - with more melodic parts, tempo-changes and that solid Tragedy and Remains of The Day influence. The lyrics just copy the typical formula of shouted-like slogans denouncing capitalism, war and media brainwashing. There are male and female vocals doing their parts very good.
