Toda Tu Vida Es Una Mentira [Your Whole Life It’s A Lie] is the debut 7” single by Kansas City, Missouri hardcore punk band Mentira. A brutally honest and resilient exercise in 21st century anarcho-punk disagreement and agitation, giving us another good reason to hate the status quo even more. “Vivimos en eterno engaño, en constante vacío existencial.”

Something else from the press release:
Kansas City, MO’s Mentira marry the unbridled innovation of the ADK roster with the contemporary melodicism and rhythmic inventiveness of the current Catalan punk scene — the groovier spiritual sibling of Destino Final, no doubt! —and emerge with something entirely their own. It makes you wanna shake your ass and KC creepy crawl in equal measure, music that is both immediate and subtle, compliments of an explosive recording that reveals its many layers upon each listen.

RIYL: Destino Final, Cosmic Toilet, U.S. Chaos, Desahuciados and Eskorbuto.

Recommended Tracks: 1, 2, 3, 4

1. (1:25) ***Tus Demonios – Loud and upbeat. killer starter.
2. (1:07) *Vacío – Fast and urgent. Great energy.
3. (2:29) *Nuestro Paisaje – Gloomy slow intro, ½ way thru explodes into full sonic agitation.
4. (1:48) **Toda Tu Vida Es Una Mentira – Another steadfast cut.
5. (3:14) La Tregua – Slow intro and outro. ½ way thru song gets vivid and noisy.
