GOD EQUALS GENOCIDE - Rattle Minds (LP)
God Equals Genocide, in my mind, has been one of the most energetic and fun (while still writting great socially concious lyrics) in recent years by my estimation. Something like 5 years ago, while drunk and on tour with them, I spent an entire evening trying to convince them to write and record a full length, to which they said "probably not." Fast forward 4 and a half years, and Daryl from the band emails me saying that they spent the night in a studio and recorded 10 songs for a record that I was gonna put out. I was stoked, but even more so after I was sent the tracks. This record really sees the band stepping it up with their own brand of sloppy thrashy poppy punk.
