Rodent Lord / Press

“This four-piece punk band from Kutztown, Pennsylvania has been together since December 2011 and has just released four new songs to destroy your ears. This has been released as both a download and on cassette from No Less Records. Starting off the four tracks with some thick hardcore influenced punk rock, the band really gets things going. Tight, fast and super crunchy, “Bone On Bone” is the perfect jumping off point. The rest of the songs follow this format of short, fast and crazed punk rock that brings to mind the early ’80s when the scene was full of great music like this and might have got lost, but in the light of the craptastic punk that’s out there nowadays, this is the real shit! Four tracks that go by far too quickly and make you want more. Check out the rest of the review on the link below.”

“This is one pissed off band! The good thing is that they aren’t just ranting on here, but giving you information about things, like police and political oppression and suppression in “Gestapo! Gestapo!”, and about the food we eat in ”Monsato’s Daughter”. It reminds me of the political anarcho punk rock and hardcore from the 1980s with the straight forward hardcore and the angry, but highly intelligent lyrics trying to get their message across. It brought me right back to when I was in high school and this was the type of stuff that my friends and I listened to a lot of. There are seven songs on here with only one breaking the two-minute mark, so they don’t beat around the bush, but they would if he was still in power I bet. Some great playing, great guitar playing with lots of power and nice leads, the bass is nice and rumbling through the songs, the drumming is almost out of control, and the singing is gruff with the back ground vocals a nice touch... check the link for”

“Let me cut to the chase here; the mountains of Pennsylvania have crafted a unique band with a dark sound all their own, and they sound pissed as hell. Pissed at who? You have your standard cast such as authoritative oppression and pointing out religious follies as well as an equal presence of backlash against the destruction and abuse of our planet. This is the band's official debut EP, containing freshly re-recorded tracks from the band's initial demo release as well as a fresh new batch of songs thrown in. The lyrical style goes up and beyond the use of mere shouted slogans or "THIS SHIT SUX" style of lyrics in that they are carefully crafted slabs of punk that draws influence from anarcho, '77 punk, hardcore and a bit of Rudimentary Peni thrown in around the edges...(check out the link to see the rest of the review)”

“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.
