    I was just looking at their site after a thread in the WOT Board peaked my interest.

    Here's one of their songs, Declaration Day.

    Very powerful. Very Patriotic.

    This is the synopsis of their new album. Their music kicks ass too. This is my new favorite band.

    Because I'm basically deaf, I'm not all that into music. I think this group may be worth a listen with headphones.

    Since your deaf it might not matter, but try to keep the volume low because they Wail, Judas Priest Style (obviously with Tim Owens as their Lead singer).

    Hey! I agree! They rock and I will be buying this CD. I grew up with 60's & 70's rock - but these guys jam.

    :cool:

    Regardless of music type, those lyrics kick some major ass. I usually listen to hip-hop and the occasional Green Day. But with lyrics like that, they could sound like The White Stripes and still be ok in my book!

    Insein, reread the lyrics, but this time think of a liberal saying this to a crowd of younger stupider liberals to rally them for a socialist revolution against george bush. I don't know if it was intentional, but it reads well both ways. That's how I read it at first, and I thought THEY were insinuating the parallel with their repeated used use of DECLARATION. I actually think it was constructed to be this way, upon further reflection.

    But it also makes total sense the other way too. Purposefully ambiguous. Great art expresses great ideas and their opposites, celebrates values and their opposites. I think I may buy this cd too.

    True! Skillfully speaks to a common denominator. We need things that can unite.
