Vol.08: Indra Chino

by Ken Jenie


Hows it goin y’all?! I hope everyone is doing well. On the 8th episode of Heartattack, we have Indra Chino as our guest contributor. Aside from running the infamous hardcore/punk distro Trueside Records, he also plays guitar on Final Attack (if you haven’t heard of ’em, google ’em now). Indra will be sharing to us some of the bands that really help shaping Final Attack’s musical journey.

From Indra Chino: Aight, so my good friend Jan asked me if I could do an episode of bands that influence Final Attack and me as a person. Growing up, I’ve always loved raw, fast, heavy, in your face kinda music. Back when I was in high school, I discovered bands like Minor Threat, Void, State of Alert, Cro-Mags, Negative Approach and so on. Those particular sound, feel and rawness really blew me away. Boy, they were really fast, weren’t they! I was totally hooked ever since. Not so long after that, I began discovering another side of hardcore, this time it got heavier. I got into bands like Madball, Merauder, Leeway, Judgeor better known as “NYHC” style of hardcore. Inspired by these particular sounds, I thought to myself “someday I gotta start a band that is influenced by all of these bands!”, so when I finally had the chance, I didn’t hesitate. Here’s the list of some bands (there are far too many to list!) that influence me and Final Attack as a band. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!
