ANTI-SYSTEM: Useless Generation: CD

Is every single band from the ‘70s and ‘80s reforming? Jaysus. Anti-System were one of my faves from back in the day, with their uncompromising anarcho thrash and fiercely anti-government/pro-animal rights lyrics (two members went to prison for animal liberation). Three of five original members isn’t bad odds and the result isn’t a million miles away from their last records—somewhere between Icons Of Filth and the Varukers. Three new songs and a couple of reworked oldies make for a pretty great return, all being said. –Tim Brooks (Boss Tuneage, bosstuneage.bigcartel.com)
