Wall Of Death The System!

'Wall Of Death The System' was the first full length from Philadelphia's acronym adoring upstarts: R.A.M.B.O..  This time around it stands for: Rage Anarchy Mosh Bike Overthrow!  Y'know..  Just so you can quickly assess where they're comin' from like..  Subtlety not being their strong point exactly..  Let loose initially by the steadfast folks at 625 Thrashcore back in 2001, this is the European press co-issued by Assault Records out of Germany in '03.  These guys were a welcome tonic to the po-faced systemic scene orthodoxies of the day..  Bustin' lips as well as blowin' minds with their uniquely militant anarcho-mosh-vegan-posi-core approach..  Remarkably enough on record they came across as far less preachy and in your face than many other avowedly 'apolitical' acts..  You get the feeling as long as you moshed your arse off with a smile on your face and picked up yer sweat-drenched moshpals whenever they stumbled..  Interpreting whatever the band's 'message' was would always be an incidental bonus to these guys.  It's almost like just having fun together is the most important thing..  Who'd a thunk it?
