Victoria B.C. Five years in the making (due to line up changes, babies and other major life changes) this is the absolute distillation of what we've been attempting to do as a band for the last 10 years. 24 songs in 22 minutes played with passion and sheer naked aggression. Written with violence and intention. cd comes in a cardboard digi-pack with all lyrics included. For samples from the record go HERE

review from Equalizing Distort - AK 47 CD This is a brand new CD by Victoria's AK 47. Still at it and still sounding as urgent as ever. The chorus on the opening song "You've Got Nothing" is "Never Surrender". Right from the get go we get evidence of the band's revolutionary spirit. Great to see it alive and well from these angry old men. And because of it I can't help think of bands's like DEADSTOOLPIDGEON, MANLIFTINGBANNER, and BIRDS OF A FEATHER. Just ripping hardcore with a revolutionary message played by scene veterans. It gives me hope at a time when everything is so shit. A voice in the darkness if you will. AK47 come from the LARM school of hardcore, except that they do have melody in a "Screaming for Change" kind of way. The atrocity of ....New Orleans...., numerous examples of racism, injustice, oppression are not lost on this band. I particular love the song directed at the scene regarding apologetic approaches to SKREWDRIVER. Finally someone calls out this out. There is enough material to go into how righteous AK 47 just on their political stand but I feel the song "Burn it Down" sums it up just bringing this shitty system down. 24 songs deliver twenty four calls to action. Heed the call. (Reason Records)
