Populist movements have always included artists who have been inspired by the raw power and intensity of the people and their struggle. United Sons Of Toil latest release “When The Revolution Comes, Everything Will Be Beautiful” tells the story of  “repression and violent struggle and personal transformation.

USOT switches between blistering and explosive to melodic, all while spreading the word of revolution and the need for change. The Album opens up with ‘Alcoholism in the Former Soviet Republics’, it shows off their noise-rock chops and sets the tone of the record. The songs have the political subtlety of a pipe-bomb, but when addressing subjects such as guerilla warfare, The Shining Path , and  the rights of Indigenous peoples, you don’t pull punches.

If any of the previous subjects interest you, or if your into early 90’s noise rock then I recommend that you pick up the physical copy of their record(which is available on their bandcamp). It comes with a zine detailing the stories behind the song and helps support a truly unique and incendiary band that does not follow the rules.

  1. Thanks for the kind words. “…the political subtlety of a pipe-bomb…” is a genius quote. Love it. Thanks.
