Looking For An Answer hail from Madrid. They recently released a split with Italy’s Cripple Bastards and their vocalist is the bass player in Dishammer(!!). Without even hearing Eterno Treblinka, their third album and debut for Relapse Records, I knew we wanted the chance to share this record with y’all.
Luckily, Eterno Treblinka rules. A dirty, no frills death-grind record built upon a foundation of hardcore. It’s like Kill the Client have a set of identical twins across the pond. Treblinka came out this week on Relapse and can be purchased here. We’ve got the full album streaming after the jump, so read more to take a listen, and get a lesson in animal rights and human massacre.

So, the album art rules. And it links into the album title (and presumably the lyrics as well, but I don’t speak Spanish…or gutteral sounds for that matter). “Eterno Treblinka” translates into ‘eternal Treblinka’ (surprise), Treblinka being a Nazi extermination camp. The phrase seems to come from the author Charles Patterson in his book “Eternal Treblinka: Our Treatment of Animals and the Holocaust.” Having not read the book, I can’t give too many details, but the rough idea I have gotten is that Patterson argues that the Holocaust’s grizly actions are rooted in human’s history of mistreatment of animals. The promo shot below seems to link into these ideas as well. Full disclosure: I am not 100% sure about this, nor do I intend to put words or ideas into Looking For An Answer’s music, but this is what my Google research has given me.
