The sound of discontent has a name, and its name is Sadaharu. Blending the big blues riffs of Black Sabbath and the frantic urgency of the DC post-hardcore sound, alongside stripped down rock and roll with jazz undertones and the aggressiveness of the early Am Rep sound, Sadaharu is a musical amalgamation quite unlike any other.
"It's Not Paranoia If They're Shooting Live Bullets" is taken from their debut-full length, Anthem For New Sonic Warfare. Released in November of 2003, Anthem quickly garnered critical praise. Alternative Press gave the album a rare 5 out of 5 rating, calling the band "Amazing punk/hardcore/jazz rockers [with] the dissonance of Drive Like Jehu, Refused's energy, and the (International) Noise Conspiracy". Skratch called Sadaharu "an adventurously well-versed rock band that likes playing and composing edgy music [...] hypnotic anthems that blend hardcore, indie punk, and noise rock into one clever concoction."
