5.0 out of 5 stars The best punk/metal album ever made.,
This album is an adrenaline blast of anti-societal rage from start to finish. I can’t accurately describe Warrior Souls sound, but it was never more uniquely their own than on this release. The riffs are atmospheric complements to the overall song, yet in-your-face and edgy at the same time. The drumming is crazed, yet completely controlled. And the vocals are filled with rage and anguish, yet unlike the vocals in most “modern rock” the singer is actually singing, not screaming. This album is essential for anyone who likes punk-influenced metal, because its never been done better than this.
5.0 out of 5 stars Maniacal Mad-Man & Co.
After failing to break their debut record, “Last Decade Dead Century,” Warrior Soul returned a mere one year later with “Drugs, God & the New Republic.” A bit more polished. A bit more commercial. And a bit more metal.
“Intro” & “Interzone” start the affair off the right way. With K.C. calling out…”We are the Government…We are the Government…We are the Government…& We Rock N’ Roll!!!” “Rocket 88” features Kory Clarke at his finest when it comes to his lyrics: “The power got the cut-off, can’t afford a phone, but you know that I’m electric when I go out alone!” “Hero” resembles “Loser”, off their first record, in terms of subject matter, vibe & approach. While “The Wasteland” comes pretty close to knocking “Downtown” off the mountain as one of this bands best songs ever recorded. Get this disc.
