Prophet Margin - Faith Salesmen (2011)


"2008-PRESENT 4-piece crack rock steady band from Brisbane, Queensland, Australia.Members: Phil - rhytm guitar, vocals; Mitch - bass, vocals; Chris - lead guitar, vocals; Sam - drums. In 2009 they released EP “We’ve All Got Cancer” on Scum Records."

Prophet Margin are back with a full-length entitled Faith Salesmen. I discovered this band over the summer and instantly fell in love with their EP We've All Got Cancer. I'm glad to see this band back with another release! Prophet Margin replicate that crack rock steady sound that was popularized by bands like Leftover Crack, Choking Victim, The Stupid Stupid Henchmen, and INDK. PM are no exception to any of this. With their raspy vocals, fast rhythm, and ska hooks, Prophet Margin encompasses everything that CRS is about. Lyrical content includes being anti-Christianity, anti-Capitalism, and pretty much every nihilistic and apocalyptic thing you can think of. Most people think of the whole CRS thing childish but I can really relate to it (not that surprising). Fans of this certain style of music will absolutely love this album.
