AGAINST EMPIRE / ISKRA: Bring the War Home: CD

Against Empire: The lyrics read like an anarchist band, but the music sounds like poor man’s thrash metal. Iskra: The lyrics were strong, and I totally empathize with their championing of the first nations’ cause. Their music, however—part metal, part Conflict-inspired noise punk—was pretty much a chore to listen to two minutes into the first song, and it didn’t get any better.
