LIBERTEER
BETTER TO DIE ON YOUR FEET THAN LIVE ON YOUR KNEES
RELAPSE

Liberteer projects the anarchistic viewpoints of extreme metal veteran Matt Widener via a quirky mix of musical styles incorporating everything from scathing grind to Americana-esque horns and banjo on the 17-track, 27 minute affair BETTER TO DIE ON YOUR FEET THAN LIVE ON YOUR KNEES. This juggernaut release skillfully balances Souza and savagery to create a unique twist within the grindcore game that sits right alongside the likes of major influences such as Napalm Death and Pig Destroyer in terms of ferocity and raw power. Unafraid to venture into experimental terrain (“Sweat for Blood”) yet ready at the drop of hat to unleash a feral flurry of brutality (“Barbarians at the Gate”), Liberteer pushes the envelope both musically and lyrically to develop a provocative and punishing blast of metallic goodness. -Mike SOS
