When one thinks of America’s favorite pastimes, a few immediately come to mind; baseball, hot dogs, bald eagles, beer, scandalously dressed women in big truck commercials, more beer and Rock ’n’ Roll. Another pastime is blaming immigrants for everything that’s wrong with the country. And now Americans have one more thing to bitch about, Mach Dharma, a hard rock band with immigrant flavor based in New York City.Safe Space, their debut album, explores the human condition in the modern age. Song lyrics are written through the eyes of different characters, offering an aggressive yet mindful perspective. The band cites influences such as Tool, Alice in Chains and Rage Against the Machine. Basically, all of Satan’s favorite bands.
