The nineties were a peculiar time in music, and most certainly in what embodied the punk scene of that era. State Of The Union were/are of that time. It made sense then, but now it’s a bit foreign. Musically, they were akin to math metal, somewhere in the world of bands like Ambush, Damnation A.D., and Neurosis, though not as urgent or heavy. These guys weren’t bad, but, at the same time, there was nothing in their music that made them entirely memorable. On this disc you get their LP, two EPs, and five new songs (meant for an LP in 2000).
