Time for some more Croatian bands to grace the pages of this zine. If you don˙t believe in your local scene, you will never believe and change the global scene. Kriva Istina are from Slavonski Brod/Zagreb and this is their new album which I listened and reviewed for this zine.
This band is active now for years and they released one split record with Faak Am See and one album, so after some slight lineup changes, this is their new second album. I eagerly waited for this album after listening to the first single and kind of title track Manifest thousand times. Boy, I was not wrong. This is one of the best melodic hardcore punk albums to come out this year. It contains 11 songs of resistance, smart lyrics that leave you in depth thinking and above all awesome technical melodic hardcore skatepunk, not unlike Propagandhi and similar bands. The lyrics are in Croatian language and they deal with activism, making a difference, friendship, sexism and the whole record basically reflects the dark political situation that is happening in Croatia right now and leaves us with hope that there is still light in darkness and people who are striving to make a change and this world better for us all. If you are in energetic melodic positive hardcore punk, played fast with heart and soul, this record is just right one for you. Get this one!
