Deafening Hate
The Revival of Resistance Records
Vicious Vocals

The music sold by Resistance Records comes from skinhead bands with names like Aggravated Assault, Nordic Thunder, Angry Aryans, Brutal Attack, Plunder & Pillage and Blue-Eyed Devils. Their albums have titles such as "Racially Motivated Violence," "Holocaust 2000," "Retribution," "Born to Hate" and "On the Attack." Their songs include "Race Riot," "Third Reich" and "White Revolution."


Hatecore is angry and loud. Its lyrics are nihilistic and violent, often screamed instead of sung. Its message of intense, vehement hatred and rage toward all "non-Aryans" is chilling. Although the bands' attitudes toward all minorities are hostile and strident, they are particularly so toward Jews.

"Hatecore," as the music is also known, is guitar-driven, rough-edged, angry and loud. Its lyrics are nihilistic and violent and are often screamed instead of sung. The music is filled with much of the same darkness, growling and discord as the more common heavy metal or black metal music often associated with rebellious teens.

But its message of intense, vehement hatred and rage toward all "non-Aryans" is unmistakable and chilling. Aggravated Assault's "It Could Happen to You," for example, is described in the Resistance Records catalog as "relentlessly violent hate rock with a forceful, furious punk edge. This album is not for the weak-hearted. Rough, unpolished, angry!"

The catalog depicts an album titled "Hate," by the band Division S, this way: "A dark wind of misery and pain ... reveals reality untainted by optimism ... heavy guitar-driven metal that forebodes great doom, mammoth emptiness, and apocalyptic finality ... an audio-blitzkrieg on your sanity. The March of Death has come to reign hatred on the weak."

The catalog characterizes other bands' albums as searing, relentless, scorching, grinding, hate-filled and unbelievably aggressive.

Although the bands' attitudes toward all minorities are hostile and strident, they are particularly so toward Jews. Among the song dedications on "It Could Happen to You," Aggravated Assault included "Krystallnacht ­­ to the survivors of the so-called holocaust ­­ we laugh at you." The Holocaust-denying lyrics to the song "Six Million Lies" by No Remorse speak for themselves:

"Did six million Jews really die,
or was it just a Zionist lie?

Torture by the Nazis, where's the proof
Why did they try to cover up the truth?
Scared in case national socialism grew
Organized lies imposed by the Jews."
