108 - religous hard core

This is a band I knew back then when I was trying to sort out where or what genre do i really want to identify myself with. It too was a time where i was questioning the religious sect I belong to. The band 108 is a sort of religious band guess i can call it that, following the Krishna consciousness. Their name 108 is the number of beads they use for chanting. On each bead they chant "Hare Krishna Hare Krishna Krishna Krishna Hare Hare", "Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare". That's repeating those phrase for a hundred and eight times. 108 is a hardcore band emerged at the time of the hardcore genre boom. The NYHC Underground video is where i saw these bands. But 108 caught my attention as they look different and their words are a bit peaceful for a hardcore band. Their music is intense and heavy with the bands political, spiritual as well as personal views and ideas are incorporated with it. On 1996 after the guitarist pursued his interests on Hinduism and decided to study more, they disbanded. It was only in 2006 that they got together when they are asked to play in one famous US summer event.
