about

Hardcore punk meets Carribbean roots in ‘Checkmate Humanity’. The song asks ‘who or what conquers me?’; Encouraging awareness of the things we consume.

Raging guitars, tribal drumming and thumping bass collide for a fierce, genre-defying sound reminiscent of Bad Brains and Rage Against the Machine.

lyrics

Bleed me dry and then some
Manipulate my every thought
Ya yo perdí, Ya yo perdí
Y nunca me entere.
Calculate how I feel and where I’ll be

¿Quien?
¿Quien o que me conquista?
Manchame de
un partido
Just convince my conviction

¿Quien o que me conquista?

To construct or to validate?
To research or further sway?
Question your ego

Re-examine your motives
What’s your rationale?
Re-examine your motives
Be self-aware

¿Quien o que me conquista?
Manchame de
un partido
Just convince my conviction

¿Quien o que me conquista?
¿Quien o que me conquista?
