Skrog: The Global Elite

Genre-benders Skrog present their debut album and they aren't a happy bunch of bunnies as they survey the world. Admirably they are taking on the big themes as seen by their leader Jay Reiter," The Global Elite is the perfect summarization of 2012. It reflects on a lot of the political turmoil across the globe. It speaks out to the "99%." It reflects on the "Occupy" movement. It speaks out against terrorism. And best of all, it speaks to people around the world. Although the album focuses quite a bit on America and its global policies, a lot of issues The Global Elite addresses affect everyone. No matter who you are or where you come from, Skrog's The Global Elite will move you and affect you."

It may well be that Skrog's harsh style may make it difficult for some to be moved and affected but there's little doubt that this is angry, aggressive and powerful music. Much of it is in generic terms extreme metal yet the most obvious comparison has to be Ministry (but Ministry when they really were Ministry if you get my drift.) This may well not be the easiest music to listen to but it is well worth trying to find it and give it a whirl.
