Training For Utopia
Throwing a Wrench into the American Music Machine
The design screams propaganda. Chaos, revolution, smash the state. The music kicks in with the roar of a crowd and a few samples looped over the noise. Guitar sounds metal… but… wait for it… yeah. Rock. Rock and Roll. Ministry without the electronic side. Rage against, well, pretty much anything that moves. Get in front of the speakers and this band will run you over and then pull a reverse just to make sure they got you good. The Melvins on speed, with throats over-smoked and cracking. Metal industrial mayhem. I think my head hurts, but still… if I was really angry right now, this would be playing so much louder.
