Enough is enough, time to strike back
Rise from the trenches!

Working class war!

Pettersson - "Rift and Seam" LP 12" (2016)

Europe has always produced the finest emotional hardcore that the scene has ever had. Hailing from Vienna, Pettersson are carrying on that tradition with their powerful new album, ‘Rift and Seam’. It channels the raw catharsis of many pioneering bands, and is one of the most intense albums to be released this year.

“We are Pettersson, and we make sad music,” is how the band describe themselves when asked. “This album is about the rifts that divide humankind, and the few seams trying to hold it together.“ by Punktastic
