Review of The Oppressed/The Prowlers DVD

From Profane Existence:

“Back in 2005, Insurgence Records had a fifth-anniversary party in Toronto. Not content to just sit back and let this milestone pass by, Insurgence brought in the almighty antifascist skinhead legends The Oppressed all the way from Wales for their one and only North American show, plus Montreal’s mighty Prowlers as an added bonus.

Review Of “Northern Aggression: Project Boneyard Vol. II”

IRPB2_coverFrom Exclaim Magazine:

Northern Aggression — Project Boneyard Volume 2
By Brad Schmale

This release is a compilation distributed with the intent of cracking down on fascist propaganda and White Pride organizations, using music as a message of unification and urgency. Comprised of punk, hardcore and hip-hop acts, and featuring 16 tracks of vigilant activism, this collection brings lesser-known artists out of the dark and onto the battlefield. Baltimore, MD outfit Fighting Chance set the scene with “Somethin’s Gotta be Done,” a call to arms that’s delivered in the true oi spirit. Toronto, ON street punks the Class Assassins and their outcast anthem, “Outside Looking In,” are a fitting contribution, as is hardcore faction Death in Custody‘s abrasive and spastic “Car Bomb.” Remarkably, America’s premier working-class punks the Press also lend their assistance to the disc with “Just another Warning,” which has just as much relevance today as it did 20 years ago. Northern Aggression ― Project Boneyard Volume 2 is a propitious comp that successfully manages to connect different artists and genres together with the soul purpose of the masses following suit despite race, creed or gender. Amen. (Insurgence)
