About the Band


Having formed in 1994, the past decade and a half saw many line-up changes while the Philippines saw a political turnover. In the 90's the band appeared on several local punk comps, and were noticed by several foreign benefactors who helped them record albums despite the economic crisis facing the country. I.O.D. received support for their first album All from WE'RE GONNA FIGHT front man Sebastian Gonnot and then from Cat Food Money Records for their second release O Guinu. They also appeared on a split by Kepala Eskorbuta Records and Maloka Distro with CRASHED OUT from Indonesia. With Francis remaining as the only original member, I.O.D. continues to attack injustice in their country and expose treachery within the scene.

In a Third World country where oppression and poverty are daily facts of life, punks truly latch onto the expressionism the genre offers. With hardcore lyrics over occasionally melodic, yet often blitzing street punk, O Guinu comes as a message in a bottle from the Pinoy underground. I.O.D. attacks injustice in their own territory as in "In the Line of Service" about unfair treatment to low level workers and "Foreign Land" which tells of the struggles of Filipino migrant workers. Some songs like "Takot" and "Yesterday's News" describe tragic and mismanaged events in the Philippines' recent history. And yet, I.O.D. also criticizes the direction of the D.I.Y "scene" into which posers and elitists have infiltrated on "The Scene, Fanzine and Schemes." These seventeen tracks of honest punk sung in English, Tagalog and the local dialect of Pampango over driving rhythms together with liner notes containing explanations of the song lyrics offer a panoramic glimpse of the Pinoy punk scene today.
