Above The Ruins

So all the ballyhoo that Stewart Home spewed about Sol Invictus only made me play that Above The Ruins album a few times. So it's mostly Joy Division/Magazine inspired fare about three years after that style died down. Frankly I found little of anything explicitly nazi about this record -- maybe "Progress" hints at some kind of rebellion and mentions "Marxism" but that's about it. Of course I only heard two songs by No Remorse -- err, "Adolf Hitler" being mundane three-cord punk with some half-decent solo guitar, and some boring tribute to Ian Stuart with cack "classic rock" guitar that made me think of a nazi John Cougar Mellon-dreck(!) Oi Vey...
