Selfreleased by the band as a demo in 2007.
Holy shit i have been wanting this since i first heard it existed. Its been on my wishlist since i first started the site and finally i got it. After the great split they did with Vanguard the band recorded this and American Defence Records was about to release some of the songs as a split with Total Annihilation but since the band broke up (or basicily emerged with Vanguard) it was only availible as a giveaway by the bandmembers themselfs. Since Bernando is more known for walking about in the Swedish forests then hanging around at streetcorners in North Carolina searching for members of underground punkbands it wasnt so easy to get ahold of. But thanks to my wishlist and Travis from American Defence Records i now got it.
It contains 4 songs from their split and one of the tracks that was on the Skinheads armed with the truth Vol.2 but other then that the rest has never been released on anything except this.
The theme of the record is quite clear from the first track. Luke and ATF depicts a horrifying picture of America today. An America where freedoms are being taken away and liberty is abused by the moneymakers in charge. Two political parties that both serve the same companys and the same corrupt world order. This subject is often talked about by many punkbands but what ATF is doing is tells the story of a plague in the land and leaves it at that. Unlike bands like Pressure point and others that complain and complain but never really has any solution to the problems American Terror Force basicly states that the problem is there. It's all very humble in a way i like and the fact that it is made through some of the rawest and best Oi! tracks to come out from US in the 00's doesnt make it any worse.
Every single track on the record is a solid song in my ears but since i like picking favourites it has to be Suffer the children from their "old" songs. From their "new" songs it has to be Out for a drink that reminds me about some mix between Templars and Bovver wonderland.
This record is as good as they get so be sure to download it.
