With a predominantly South London based line-up, Kartel possess a brutal urban groove which viciously pounds through their songs. Generally influenced by the New York or New Jersey style of heavy hardcore, the band blend a wide mix of influences to create a unique but unmistakably London brand of hardcore. Kartel’s music is undoubtedly a landmark in brutal yet technical originality - elements of hip-hop and thrash metal combine with the band’s distinctive groove and off-beat, inimitable breakdowns to create a truly incomparable sound. Pete and DBS’s raw but clear vocal styles effectively contrast and mesh, spitting bitter tales of hatred, social-injustice and revenge.
