leave a comment »

In 2014, I had interviewed Pakistani grindcore act Multinational Corporations and has since been in touch with vocalist Hassan Amin.

Hassan’s latest band is based in Germany and a punk act composed of musicians from  Colombia, England and Germany. A couple weeks ago they released their debut release, ‘Parcham Buland Ast’.

I caught up with him to find out more about Zanjeer, the topics on ‘Parcham Buland Ast’, his hip hop projects and much more.
