02. Traitors stomped out
03. Warpaths ahead
04. Heart of fire and stone
05. Cut blood line
Selfreleased by the band in 2009.
The band is basicly an Oi!/Metal sideproject by members from various hardcore bands (seems all new US Oi! bands today are). The members are anonymous and no names or pictures of the members are given out on their releases but from what i have understood some of the members have their background in such bands as Mind Eraser, Painkiller and the fantastic Lovely Lads.
As much as they where going for an Oi!/Metal hybrid i can hear them both but what strikes me when i listen to it is the RAC feeling i get. Not because of the lyrics but from the feeling of the songs, the way their vocalist sings and offcourse the whole metalthing they got going on. Sounds like early 90's Brittish RAC or even Australian RAC (thinking of Fortress here).
Well is it any good? Yeas it sure is!! I am a huge sucker for the whole British metal offspring of the RAC scene and this one even lands on top of most old stuff since it lacks all the annoying "nigger-bashin" lyrics.
It's not hard to understand the members background in HC bands even though it rocks more than trashes in these songs, i am thinking especially of the song Cut blood line. A song that never made it to their later and now out-of-print EP from 2010 which has a heavyier tone than the rest of the songs. My own personal favourite is Heart of fire and stone that takes the metal thing a step further and almost becomes a bit glammy in the chorus (damn i love that chorus).
