Seven songs of dark crust played in the key of despair.
Encierro formed in the wake of Australia's savage Black Summer bushfires, an intense and catastrophic fire season that consumed large parts of the country in late 2019 and early 2020. The cover artwork for this LP is inspired by this horrific event, which wiped out ecosystems and incinerated wildlife in the millions.
Seven songs rage out of epic hopelessness in the face of corporations that pillage the environment and exploit the disadvantaged to wreak havoc on global ecosystems and crush the human spirit. Amidst the chaos and destruction, this EP gives hope to a new generation who will never back down in strength and solidarity against corrupt systemic abuse.
Legendary local artist Swak reproduced the cover art for our roller door in January 2024.
Ships early February.
