Album Review

Well, it's about time! After three singles and lord knows how many years of squatting on the East Coast, Choking Victim has finally released an album on Epitaph. Of course, this doesn't mean that they'll be off the streets anytime soon, but at least they'll have that occasional royalty check coming in to pay for their beer money. So with No Gods, No Managers, the artwork is covered with blasphemous symbols that range from upside-down crosses to pentagrams to drawings of the dark lord himself. The addition of many recommendations of smoking crack rock — whether or not this is serious was never really determined — makes Choking Victim the antithesis of every ska-punk band out there. So, yeah, not only do these guys preach the anti-sobriety/anti-religious message, but there's also a serious anti-life/anti-nationalistic theme going on with the band. Song's like "F**k America" and "Suicide (A Better Way)" sort of give that away. Fun, but not for anyone who needs their spirits uplifted.

Customer Reviews

Sick, twisted and utterly fantastic.

Don't you guys know leftover crack? Wordd...Well this is Choking Victim and they are a great band from NYC that later on formed to be the mighty LoC. As for this album, I must say that some of the songs like "Suicide" and " Born to Die" are not as good as the versions on their previous LP, Squattas Paradise. In my opinion, they lack a certain DIY appeal that the latter possessed in full. However, the remainder of the songs on this album are completely and utterly hardcore in both their lyrical and musical expression. If your a fan of punk, ska, both or neither at all I still highly recommend this album to anyone who wants to get an earful of some truly dark, political yet fun and original tunes. Highlights of the album: " In My Grave", "F***** Reality", and "War Story".Rock the 40oz bruhh.

500 CHANNELS on XM radio and none of them play this!

More melodic and less screaming than Leftover Crack (Leftover crack is great, don't get me wrong) which is great for a melodic punker like me, i sure love my lagwagon cds! Their ska is also awsome in their ska verse, distorted chores pattern. Like alot of crack rock steady bands they are very passonate about the subjects they sing about. I like how it is produced to give it a Raw, angst in a garage feel. So buy this then get mediocre generica by leftover crack because you will like that CD if you like this one almost undoubtebly. Bye Bye!


Amazing, just like everything else CV does. Do yourself a favor and buy it.
