Hey Hey we just released our new ep "Anthropocene" this is what Kat Merkin from TOXIC SHOCK RADIO (miami) had to say.. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . Rodent Lord's, "Anthropocene", is a bad ass contribution to our generation's punk scene. They have a crusty sound with street punk riffs. If Disrupt and A Global Threat fucked each other, Rodent Lord would be the product. Thus,  bringing back a unique sound heard only in the 90s and early 2000s. Its nice to have that brought back to this era with their music.What I like most about Rodent Lord is that their music has substance. Its not just another band singing about getting wasted all the time. On my radio show, I play riot grrrl, queercore, and crust. I love playing them on air because they sound vicious AND their lyrical content is wicked. The lyrics are clever and fresh such as in the song "Monsanto's Daughter" where the daughter is a metaphor for Monsanto's seed. There are strong political messages reminding us of the need to be militant against the christian right and other institutionalized perversities.  To me, this is what punk rock is about. Solidarity between generations with the power to revolt and make a change in this sick sad world and refusing to "shut the fuck up". Rodent Lord successfully breaks the silence and unapologetically spews musical vomit all over conservative/normative society, while smiling as the bile burns their eyes. Two thumbs and a middle finger up. -Kat Merkin. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .  . . . . . .LISTEN to Kat's radio show every sunday afternoon from noon - one (standard eastern) @ www.fuism.com. . . . . . . . . .
