[TRIGGER WARNING!] Moro’s “entrüstet” is a concept-driven EP delving into the topic of rape culture. The title of the EP is the German word for enraged, to describe the feelings this four-piece from Hamburg have captured when it comes down to sexual harassment, sexism and rape. Although every sentence of the lyrics have been written very carefully with the intention to create awareness and start important discussions within their friends and hardcore punk communities.

The titles of the four songs are the names of four mountain peaks to illustrate that the chosen emphases are only the tip of an even bigger and more complex issue. All the lyrics are in German language with only the explanations to the songs being in English, which I think is great, because it’s always better to use your native tongue when expressing strong feelings about a sensitive topic. As we can expect, the music is harsh and not easy digestible screamo with mass of screeched guitars and cried vocals. The production is as DIY as possible – recorded in a rehearsal space and a living room, mixed and mastered by the band themselves. This is not about musicianship but about the message, the conversation and the attitude towards the problems we face every day.
