The Uprise and New Glory. As The uprise might have been a non-political but right-winged band and New glory was proud nationalists this band went a step further and promoted their racialist beliefs both in lyrics and interviews.
This Philadelphia band started out in 1987 under the name United Noise with Steve Spagnola on vocals, Garret Kress and Gavin Perry on guitars, Doug Prusso on bass and Dan Walton on drums. In 1989 the band had some changes in their lineup bootin their bassist and replacing Dan on drums with former The Uprise member Rob Daly. With this change in lineup and a new bandname came a record deal with German label Rock-O-Rama that released a 7'' and this LP in 1990. Soon after this the band dispursed going their seperate ways.

Just like Arresting officers this is a band that is really easy to like if one can overlook some of the more political themed songs. As much as i like the RAC and is no more than a fencewalking scumbag in most "real skins" eyes i can honestly say that there isnt much hate to be found on this release by a band calling themselfs Elite Terror. The racialism that can be found here is the same old "race & nation" themed lyrics that can be found on early Brutal attack records that i know the majority of all 30+ skins hide under their pillow. Even though it might cause a diversion i can still hear hip hop bands talking about black pride and latin punk & rock bands talking about the pride of aztec's etc so i cant really see the harm it will do anyone.
Musically it doesnt stray far from New glory's sound but with a bit more of a r'n'r twist in it. Since i'm not a racialist i find the more non-political songs like Justice is dead and Working class men being more to my liking with their today quite cliché lyrics about being on the dole and being harrassed by police.
It's not the greatest album and far from a classic but if you like in your face anthems with nationalstic messages or skinheads fighting with dragons in the streets this is for you.
