Cagliari/Berlin based d-beat hardcore act BUILT ON ABUSE kick off with new swingin’ single “All My Ghosts”

Focused on the toughness of managing modern life, builded on layers of social distancing, ego, and wrong social values, BUILT ON ABUSE bring in a solid new proposal for fans of striking, d-beat infused hardcore, laced with proper message. Their debut dingle “All My Ghosts” tackles with the loss of friends in terms of regrets, and gives you a good example of what to expect from the full release, to be uneiled later in 2020. Check it out, read the lyrics below and scroll down to see the band’s additional commentary on their local scene and the legacy of their fallen friend Carlo Articolo (Strikedown Records).

“If there’s no mercy in this fucking life
I can’t go straight to the final end
Call you/search you/bring me to life
Hear all the screams consuming my brain
If there’s nobody everytime I fall
If still no one wants to reach my call
Call you/search you/bring me to life
Hear all the screams consuming my brain
And I’m still living with all my ghosts
With all the friends that I have lost
So much regrets feeding all the pain
I can’t afford no more.”

Our local scene is always vital and productive.

There are so many projects that arise and grow up everyday, that’s hard to mention without missing someone. Everyone of us is a member or ex member of Hardcore Punk and Rock ‘n’ Roll bands.

Everyone is hardly struggling against these hard times but we think that all this shit will produce thousand of great and cool stuff in the next future.

Mirko and Roberto are also involved in the Strikedown Collective, for the organization of Strikedown Festival, an event originally created by our friend and brother Carlo Articolo (Scornthroats, Strikedown Records, Ghostown Booking), that unfortunately passed away in 2018. We decided to take over and carry on with this festival to honour his memoryu and, year after year, to continue supporting our local scene and keep it alive.

BUILT ON ABUSE

Everyone of us has his own inspiration, here some of our favourites:

Motorhead, Discharge, Black Sabbath, Disfear, Hellacopters, Tragedy, Wolfbrigade, all of glorious years of Hardcore Punk and many more

Thanks for all. Stay safe. Hope to hear you soon.
