Just when I was searching for some hardcore punk bands to review on these 'zine, 6 months ago I received a request from a HC act called Princip. It is a one-man band based between London and Belgrade that was founded in 2015 by Damjan Stefanović, a very active British musician with Serbian origins that not only plays in various bands/projects (also with an illustrious artist like Sarah Jezebel Deva of Cradle of Filth's fame!) but runs even a young small label named Life as a Dream Records. Through it, he digitally released in 2017 the first two EPs performed under the moniker of Princip. Some months later that release, the Serbian label JesBoliGaKurac Records edited both the EPs in a single cassette tape called "Fuck Your Empire" (that's also the same title of the first EP). And only 6 months later I finally managed to listen to this compilation, but I think that all this waiting was worth it!
