Even the hedgehog with many nails has a soft heart behind them.
How it sounds
Like punk called hardcore punk, but in reality, it is just punk with a few elements of Indian religious music.
With lyrics that speak to the message of the Hare Krishna tradition.
Why listen to it
Because at the same time we hate the world like real punks and we want to convey the love message of Hare Krishna.
And because no matter how hard we are, we are attracted to Eastern philosophy and somewhere we want to talk about the Vedas.
Because although a sub-genre of hardcore it is not hardcore.
And why not like elements of Indian music in Western music.
Where we meet it
In the USA. and not in India
When did it start
Sometime in the late ’80s and early ’90s

Shelter and Cro-Mags are considered pioneers of the genre.

Days of glory
In the 80’s, quite remarkable bands were created, which, however, did not continue.
The record label Equal Vision Records, created by Shelter, tried hard to promote this musical movement, but “failed”.
Although he made a valiant effort to incorporate elements of Indian culture into punk, he did not succeed.
Religious obsessions cannot go to a satisfactory level of popularity, no matter how remarkable the forms that represent them.
What is it confused with

How do you describe it to an irrelevant
They are bald guys who play hard punk and do not know if they hate or love everyone.
