daily_metal_album Balance is a mix of punk and sludge metal. Political and emotional lyrics make it stand out from the crowd of metal musicians. Of Wolves made the music which provides listeners thrill, heavyness and possibility to headbang for 38 minutes. Favorite track: JESUS JIHAD.

johx771 A highly energised blend of punk and power noise, contrasted with sections of atmospheric reflection, all underpinned by a raw, angry political and sociological commentary. A great album, and the Misfits cover is remarkably well re-imagined. After listening to the full album, I can't get the incredibly catchy "they keep on feeding us shit, we keep on eating it" out of my head! Great work. Favorite track: MENS REA (IZAGUF).
Nuno Lourenço

Nuno Lourenço Sludge, punk, noise-rock? Absolutely, but with a strong political statement, an enormously angry attitude, strong lyrics and an immense power. I was fooled by the cover, but this is as energetic stuff as it gets!

I tried & and they lied I wont let them take it all from me I wont stand back or look away We must all stand together as one Before there’s nothing left to take Before there's nothing left to give Separate Divide and conquer Separate & divide then we’re done no care for consequence never question make no dent no respect no care for life its now or nothing do or die The Cause and the Release of our disease Thinking that we can bottle our dreams Separate Divide and conquer Separate & divide Only worried about the dollar not worried about tomorrow (x8) They keep on feeding us shit and we keep on eating it (x6) Maybe its easier to be dumb not to give a shit or care but I smell your fear (x2) Separate Divide and conquer Separate & divide A paradigm of lies Our chains are loosened by our minds No Silver Spoon No Golden Rule Just A White Washed Picket Fence picking sides that dont exist Only worried about the dollar not worried about tomorrow (x6) They keep on feeding us shit and we keep on eating it (x4) We Keep on feeding the hole

We are the good guys and we wear blue no-bid contracts big government coup we call it democracy but we pull the strings puppets in office incompetence reigns we build the bombs they strap them on telephone detonators and buses explode They are coming Jerusalem calling Freedoms coming We are coming visions of empire a pre-emptive war we implanted so-called democracy The Wolfowitz doctrine a policy of deception create the process of transformation absent some catastrophic event would just take way too long falsified propaganda to shape the circumstances lockheed martin making a killing off killing (its The Project For A New American Monarchy) Smashing Burning Your cities on fire Smashing burning Your city is in flames Smashing Burning Your cities are on fire Smashing burning Your city is not your city While Chaney Makes Money you all throw your shoes Youre under occupation jesus will set you free Set you Free (3x) set you Building roads building bridges building pipelines blow them up building schools building banks building churches burn them down The reign of error is over (but) whats left is a mess big money big business the drones are coming duck when they attack WHEN THEY ATTACK (x3)

When your thoughts the same does it make it real and when your mommy lies to you does it make you feel safe Little green men or the big bang jesus buddha mohammed carpenter or prophet likeness or godhead When they teach it to you at school Does it make you a believer? And when youre about to die Do you find your God GODS DONT DIE life its to late to try life its to late to die life its to late so try life its to late dont DIE We could destroy and we can create We could destroy and we could create And we can destroy what we create And we can destroy with what we created As they jam it down our throats and we know better Like a bridge and driving over When everything we know is a lie What we believe and nothing is real When words don't ever make sense With everything that you know does make you wanna kill and after theyre all dead does it make you god? GODS DONT DIE life its to late to try life its to late to die life its to late so try life its to late DIE We could destroy and we can create We could destroy and we could create We can destroy what we create We can destroy with what we created
