Milkmine, where do I know that band name? prolly cause they're famous on the direct other side of my state. why does almost every city in Ohio have good bands but Youngstown fucking blows. sheesh. and we had the Emissions Festival here, a sort of doom/stoner equivalent to MDF for years. I attended in 2007. I remember seeing Grief live. now our scene sucks.

@IntolerantSocialist - perfect song to strip the irony away from (Saccharine Trust were drugged up neo-beatniks who were fond of ridiculing Christianity, Machiavellian evangelists, etc. - cf. God Bullies, Crust, The Birthday Party). These are seriously trenchant lyrics if you remove them from this context, anticipating E. Michael Jones' thesis in Libido Dominandi: Sexual Liberation and Political Control fifteen years ahead of time - liberal "freedom" is a guise for unleashing easily manipulable lusts and desires.

We don't need freedom
We don't need freedom
We don't need freedom
Freedom is what ruined your brain
With creativity drugs and pain
Freedom is what let you run wild
Explain freedom to your fatherless child

We don't need freedom
Do we now


Freedom preaches disobedience
Idiot rebellion false allegiance
Pride waste lust and greed
We're "free" to obey all of these

Comfortably that's how we'll be
Enough for you plenty for me
We won't need actors and rock stars
All we'll want is farmers and soldiers


We don't need freedom
We don't need freedom
We don't need freedom
We don't need do we

@Plastic Sturgeon I remember Saccharine Trust during my old punk years, though what drove me away from punk into the arms of metal was the scene policing (as you've said) though last week you mentioned the Birthday Party, I was listening to some of their stuff, pretty noisy rock for the late 70s/early 80s.

Are there pro-Machiavellian bands out there, or like ones who supported people like Schopenhauer, Hegel, etc?
I'm not too sure of any that openly refer to the works in their music, but I imagine the Martial Industrial and Neofolk scenes would yield the most here. Stuff like Sol Invictus.

supposed to be plural as in track(s) but whatever

song titles possible:

Semen By First Elder
Jesuits In The Vipers Den
Tippecanoe And Fuck You Too
Doomsday Terror Kvlt Eternal
Feminism Ruins The Environment
Getting very good. That first track is maybe the best development of your sound so far. The newer stuff reminds me of a darker take on 90s lo-fi. If you took Five Starcle Men, The Dead C, etc. and crossed it with Godflesh.

Punk and Metal are more or less both in the enemy's hands by now.

Saccharine Trust and The Birthday Party are great bands but they're also bugman classics (similar to what you mentioned about Rudimentary Peni) - they were both highly feted on RYM and all the soy punk forums I browsed when I was a teenager. In particular, they liked to gush over Rowland S. Howard, when I've long thought that the guitar playing is the least compelling aspect of their music.

You might get a kick out of this too:
