HOWITZER: Police State: CD

With military and “evil empire” type of imagery abound, it’s no surprise that Howitzer is some seriously beefy, tough guy hardcore of the Agnostic Front variety. The tunes are pretty good but the words are a little predictable. Lots of stuff about scene politics, the government sucks, the cops suck and “live for today” type of stuff…well, the song about a Viet Nam POW kinda came out of left field. Better than a lot of bands like this, but I don’t see myself returning to it too much.
