"Evil Empire is eight people from the Chicago suburbs. We have different interests, opinions, and personalities. We play music together to promote peace, knowledge, and truth. We don’t care if you’re into hardcore or emo. In fact, we don’t give a motherfuck. Just keep things real, stand up for what’s right. - Fuck all inequalities, smash imperialism, keep it real, have fun. That’s our stance. Teach yourself. - Evil Empire"
This album has always been in my top five favorite crack rock steady-related albums and I'm pleased to be throwing it up on my blog. What I really love about Evil Empire is their brass section. They incorporate a lot of jazzy undertones and lots and lots of trumpets and trombones into their music. Their lyrics are also raw and target very controversial topics such as the music industry, the police, of course, genocide. Nothing like a bunch of angry as fuck guys with some trumpets and trombones getting together and making some kick ass ska music. Like Evil Empire says, smash imperialism and fuck in equalities!
