Label: OPPOSITION RECORDS, Riot Ska Records
Bio: Blowin' Up like a package from Ted Kaczynski!
“Opposition Rising hail from Boston and band members have been heavily involved with the scene for many years. Their diverse tastes are reflected in the sound they've produced here, a pleasant cocktail of sharp old-school hardcore and dismetal with touches of what is probably best described as ska-crust. The production job is crisp without being too clean, very well suited to what they're doing, and everything fits nicely into place. The band have matched the noise to some creative and intelligent lyrics, which is exactly what you'd expect from folk who've been around the block a few times. There's an uncompromising attitude that could only really come from veterans of the social war. They've also made some conscious positive decisions about what DIY means to them when it comes to putting out their music in this day and age. It's nice to see the old guard (still) setting the pace in political punk rock discourse. ”
