Pick Your Side - Let Me Show You How Democracy Works (A389)
When I first heard this my immediate thought was that it sounded a hell of a lot like Haymaker. Turns out it's ex-Haymaker. Also ex a bunch of those other Canadian bands like Left For Dead and Chokehold.
Like Haymaker, it's some weird mid-point between 80s hardcore stuff and moronic mosh metal but somehow turning out awesome.
It will make you want to kill people.
It won't show you how democracy works though. Like Haymaker before them the lyrics are pretty stupid and childish. But, y'know, it's a punk record. Who cares.
And yeah, the artwork is fucking shit.
The music, though. The music is good.
