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