Vegan Reich About
Started in Long Beach in 1987 by muslim front man Sean Muttaqi, this punk band has always been shrouded in controversy. With their very open straight edge, anti racist and vegan message, they are known as the creators of Hardline subculture. Which puts a big focus on the protection of environment and are usually vegan straight edge bands. But in the 90’s they did begin to adopt more of a metal influence in their music.
But what differentiates them and other vegan straightedge punk bands, is their traditionalistic views. They are the only major band to have combined both the views of the militant animal rights movement, as well as conservative views on abortion and homosexuality.
