Abraxas – Embrace capitalism (until it strangles you)

“Abraxas cover letter leaves no room for doubt. Without cracks, neither ambiguities. At the first beat everything is already on the table. Flowing, flashing and exploding. We are facing a perfectly designed sound artifact that, starting from an electro-techno-EBM sound so industrial and fierce as timeless, seeking to remove consciences, enhance the rebellion of a punished society and encourage militant struggle.

Embrace Capitalism (until it strangles you)’ invites both to the dance, and to the reflection before the action. On an strong base, with clear rising dark-wave, a regurgitate as acidic as schizoid serves as loudspeaker so that the spoken word messages, of a martial female voice, drag, after the drop, to a place after which there is no chance to return if nobody remedies it.”

Fernando Fuentes, Jaguay.

This is the first Abraxas Project song, electronic music to shake bodies and minds.

Abraxas is an electronic and techno music project whose aims are making as big as possible audience dance while shaking minds spreading clear, simple and easy to understand individual and social self-criticism messages, always from the point of view of duality, extremes and contradiction, so inherent to the human being and to the capitalist society.

Hope you like it. Hope you dance it. Hope you think about it. Dance. Think. Fight!

September the 9th was the release date of the first Abraxas project song. You can listen to it on all the main streaming platforms as Spotify:

And also on BandCamp and SoundCloud:

LYRICS

Capitalism has brought with it progress, not merely in production but also in knowledge.

Be capitalist. Believe in capitalism. Love capitalism.

Be capitalist, my friend. Believe in capitalism, my sister. Love capitalism, my brother. Become capitalist, comrade!

It rewards us for being brave, it awards us for being innovative and thinking out of the box. Thinking out of the fucking box.

Embrace capitalism. Embrace capitalism!

However

Capitalism means that a few people will do very well, and the rest will serve the few.

Capitalism attacks and destroys all the finer sentiments of the human heart; it ruthlessly sweeps away old traditions and ideas opposed to its progress, and it exploits and corrupts those things once held sacred.

Capitalism offers freedom, but far from freedom, it enslaves us.
Enslaves you, enslaves us. Enslaves you, enslaves us. Enslaves you, enslaves us.
Enslaves you!

Enslaves us!
Enslaves you!

Embrace capitalism! Embrace the one who strangles you! Love the one who kills you! Fuck the one who kills you!

Hey guys, nothing in the world is irreversible, not even capitalism.
