Listening Post

The very early 90s was an interesting period for metal, mostly because a lot of bands finally started crossing things up and experimenting with funk, punk and alternative. One of the better bands to come out of this period of genre-bending was Warrior Soul, who looked like and were initially sold as a metal band but who sounded a lot like a punk band, complete with a giant helping of nihilistic political commentary on the decline of American society.

This was from their second album, Drugs, God and the New Republic. It's a song I still listen to quite a bit because more than 20 years after its release it hasn't lost a bit of its sonic fury.

Here's The Wasteland.
