DYSTOPIA was an interesting and very original doom metal and crust-punk band that formed in Orange County, California in 1991. DYSTOPIA was popular in both the Metal and Punk scenes, due in large part to the band's bleak, dark imagery. DYSTOPIA's lyrics often dealt with human emotions and social or political issues such as anarchism, environmentalism, racial equality, substance abuse and animal rights. In fact we can to affirm that this band has its musical sources in the 80s punk band Amebix, which was also characterized for this ultra slow punk crust and political lyrics. In the 90s we can also found Man Is The Bastard as a doom / crust / punk musical project. Unfortunately the band only recorded 4 albums but I think this last with homonious name is the best. The band started in 1991 and disbanded in 2008.

When humans are fed lies, and are forced to think that corruption is the way of the land, some will rebel. Revolutionary beings have been on this planet since the beginning of time, and the early 90’s was no different. Many punks from my era thought that the scene stopped with us, but the oppression of humanity did not stop in the 80’s, and neither did the music that spoke out against it. One band in the 90’s that took the spirit of Cali peace punk to another level was Dystopia. This band took the blues of doom, the filth of crust and the aggro energy of punk and ended up creating their own sound that still kills to this day. You know a band is classic when their lyrics act as a crystal ball into the past, present and future. This is just the case with Dystopia – everything that they sang about is coming to pass, for example how they spoke about the corruption of the 1%, and that the revolution would continue in the 99%. Our comrades in noise Tankcrimes are re-releasing’s Dystopia’s debut album Human=Garbage and the vinyl looks SO FUCKING UNREAL! CVLT Nation is so stoked to be streaming this classic album, one that has stood the test of time for 20 years. Dystopia RULES! Pre-Order Human=Garbage HERE! (*NOTE = review writen here).
