A new black metal compilation album titled "Crushing Intolerance Volume 1" is now available online for streaming and download.
You can get the tracks on a pay-what-you-want scale at Bandcamp here, with all proceeds going towards Women On Waves, a charity that provides contraception and reproductive health services to women who can't otherwise access them. The organizers of the compilation comment:
"Women on Waves aims to prevent unsafe abortions and empower women to exercise their human rights to physical and mental autonomy. We make sure that women have access to medical abortion and information through innovative strategies. But ultimately it is about giving women the tools to resist repressive cultures and laws. Not every woman has the possibility to be a public activist but there are things we can all do ourselves. With a ship Women on Waves can provide contraceptives, information, training, workshops, and safe and legal abortion services outside territorial waters in countries where abortion is illegal."
