Empowerment is a German hardcore band that does not sound like Caliban or HeavenShallBurn but one that get its influences from 80s/90s NYHC acts. You’ll hear a lot of regurgitated metallic riffs and some pissed off lyrics. At least I assume they are pissed off because with the lyrics being in German, I don’t know what the fuck they’re going on about most of the time.

Oh yeah, not only can you find the lyrics in the booklet, the band is also nice enough to explain the lyrics separately. That’s how I learned that the song “Blanker Hass” is about how nazis are bad. Gee, what an original concept! I don’t think any other band has ever written about that…
