Antimaniax, As Long As People Think
Political ska core crew from Austria, lively and loud.
Blasting out of Graz, Austria comes the political hardcore sounds of the ANTIMANIAX. Mixing up Leftover Crack's squatpunk noise withPropagandhi's more direct political delivery they unleash no-nonsense political rage against the G8 group of rich nations, neo-nazis, animal rights abuses and many more heartfelt subjects, while still managing to make great music and having some fun.
Heavy UK touring and touring in the far east of Europe have brought them a huge fanbase and coupled with the two albums on Household Name "As Long as People Think" (2003) and "Desert of Concrete" (2004) have helped them gain a reputation as one of the most exciting political ska/hardcore bands in Europe.
How queer that the band that could revitalise the whole skacore scene and give it a much needed kick up the arse should originate in Graz, Austria. Anti Maniax, mix up squat-punk noise with Propagandhi style political hardcore all in an aggressive skacore stylee. "As Long As People Think" is a strong debut with ten tracks with the lyrics covering everything from animal rights to a recipe for chilli con tofu!! (true!) Crammed full of killer tunes this is an album for anyone who is into bands who have a social conscious and are not afraid to speak their minds.
