"(...) chaotically well-executed blast beating, distorted mayhem at its best. The best way to describe this would be an American version of early Napalm Death." - Live4Metal
The Enemy Soil Smashes the State Live DVD release is a must for all of the Enemy Soil fans all over the world that never got a chance to see the influential political grindcore band live, as well as for those who want to see how the various incarnations of the group performed, presented here using raw video originally captured on analog camcorders.
Enemy Soil from Virginia, USA, despite being broken up for over a decade, has seen its classic Relapse 7” from the mid-‘90s reissued and its select discography Enemy Soil Smashes the State! (of which the DVD is a companion release) repressed numerous times. The various members of the band have gone on to form several other bands, not the least of which being PIG DESTROYER, and have gone into such diverse groups as AGORAPHOBIC NOSEBLEED, DRUGS OF FAITH and FRODUS.
Featuring never-before seen live footage of 24 songs taken from shows from 1996 to 1998 and the set from the 2001 reunion gig at CBGB’s in New York City, Enemy Soil Smashes the State Live is packed with over an hour of music, including a previously unreleased live in the studio audio recording, a photo and flyer gallery, and liner notes. This marks the first time that video of Enemy Soil is available for a mass audience.
