The newest release on Doomed To Extinction Records is a 3-way split cassette titled Slaves Of Freedom. The bands featured are Ego (based in Berlin, Germany), Disciplina (out of Oakland, California), and Otih (from Banja Luka, Bosnia and Herzegovina).
While musically different from each other, all three bands relay similar lyrical content: alienation and loneliness, proliferation of technology, surveillance and control, consumerism, and war. The other unifying factors are the language all three bands sing in, Serbo-Croatian, and the fact that the 3 members of the bands who worked on this release are immigrants and refugees from various parts of ex-Yugoslavia (from Serbia to Germany, from Bosnia and Herzegovina to the US, from Croatia to Bosnia and Herzegovina).
Ego was formed in Berlin in 2019. The singer and guitarist were previously in a band called GAU. Their 2 songs featured on Slaves Of Freedom are from the very first studio recordings the band did back in mid 2019. Recorded DIY by the Ego guitarist.
Disciplina is a one man band formed after the break up of Oakland based crust punk bands Filthchain and Antifact. Recorded DIY at home with a 3 string guitar, 2 string bass, and a drum machine.
Otih was formed in Banja Luka in 2020. A 2 piece band whose members have been in numerous hc/punk bands since the 1990s. Recorded and mixed at Otih rehearsal space, DIY.
