Good afternoon (or night, or morning where ever you might be) anarcho-punk.net! I'm not only new to this site, but also to this style of music. I'm a metalhead, and was listening to metal from about the age of fourteen. It wasn't until recently that I got into punk, and really it's been crust for me. Grind bands were my gateway drug into crust (PxDx, Napalm). I'm not sure what kind of reaction this will get, but here it goes: I'm in the Air Force, and have been for about four years now. Now, please understand that only in the last year have I been reading leftist/anarchist theory. It all makes far too much sense, and as a result I hate what I am, truly. When I first entered the af, I was still a liberal, but I believed that despite the utter fuck up of a war that I would be supporting, I could still come to terms with the fact that I would be involved in the defense of the country. Noam Chomsky and Howard Zinn, among others, helped me see things in a whole new way, so now I understand that "national defense" is a bullshit term. Since I"m still new to the genre, I"ll welcome any good recommendations. I've been listening to Behind Enemy Lines, Resistant Culture, Caustic Christ, and Aus-Rotten. I'm still a metalhead, so I've also been listening to some Red Anarchist BM, like Fall of the Bastard and Panopticon. I really like Iskra (blackened crust) too. Glad to be here, hope to have some good conversations.
