In my opinion, the Suicide Machines were one of the great bands of the 1990s ska-punk movement, at least in their early days. Their full length debut, Destruction by Definition is arguably the best ska-punk album of the 1990s and I'd be very suprised if anyone could nominate a better singer than Jason Navarro. Follow-up album, Battle Hymns, threw a bit of a curve ball at fans, as they stepped up the hardcore punk and approached a death-metal-scream on some of the vocals. Suprisingly, this worked really well and the album was also a personal favourite.

Then, in a strange set of choices, the Suicide Machines proved once again that they wouldn't be pigeon-holed by embracing a much more "pop music" sound on their next couple of albums. Although not badly made, and still featuring Navarro's fantastic voice, these records were just plain boring!

Now, as a fond farewell to fans before the band called it a day, the Suicide Machines roll back the clock to the Battle Hymns era and put out a ska-core album that can hold its head high. Just to reassure any fans who were trying before buying, the opening track sets the musical agenda with a two minute blast of political hardcore, with Jay and Dan Lukacinsky trading off gutteral screams like in the old days. Then they remind us that they can still do ska with "Capitalist Suicide". Each track offers a variation on the Battle Hymns theme of unexpected jumps between bouncy ska and blistering hardcore but with an even more anti-capitalist, political edge.

Although this record isn't perfect, as it does have a couple of less-than-inspiring songs towards the middle, this is evidence that the Suicide Machines were a band that always had the force, even if they chose not to use it.

In the aftermath of the 2004 elections, and with PunkVoter utterly failing to unite disfranchised American youth, Suicide Machines had 2 options: eskew the political angle entirely and return to relatively inoffensive songs (see: NOFX) or come back fighting. The album title should give you a clue which option they went for..

The first song is a fiery statement of intent, spewing hate on familiar targets ("capitalist scumbag you have been warned") but, unlike some of their peers, the Suicide Machines actually offer solutions ("there's no antidote? that's a f*cking joke, a shock to the head that'll cure the problem") along with the bile. The album never really slows down from that point, attacking our disturbing over-reliance on nuclear power (Nuclear Generators), Hollywood greed (Ghost On Sunset Blvd.), the marketing of rebellion (Revolution Is On The Clearance Rack) along with a multitude of other issues, no doubt familiar to any fan of Strike Anywhere, Propaghandi, et all.

Interestingly, the band chooses to tackle the personal along with the political, showing a humanistic side that other bands tend to ignore. Hands Tied (vintage Suicide Machines and my favourite song on the album) bemoans "I just can't find enough time for myself", suggesting the last few years have taken its toll on the band as well as the country they reside in. Similarly, Bottomed Out, a song about being on the lowest ebb ("he's hit the bottom, he's hit the bottom again) is placed between songs about rebellion and energy struggles. The band drives the point home that, yes, power games and political issues will continue to effect the average American negatively. Collectively they need to "rise up and fight the power".

My favourite bands are Streetlight Manifesto and Choking Victim and I loved this album.

This CD is a lot heavier then their previous albums with more 'screaming' in.

This is a great mixture of ska, punk and hardcore music. The songs have parts which you want to 'rock out' to and parts where you can just relax and skank to!

The bass is very strong in this album. Their are a lot of punk guitar riff's with distortion but most songs have a breakdown with some nice ska riffs and harmonic vocals.

All the songs have something different about them. The album is very interesting and a great listen.

Ska/punk with heavy post-core mixed in. A great combo. Buy this album!

Pick it up hardcore 11 Aug 2005
By Jarrid Crespo - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This CD seems to be an amalgum of all their styles put together. Now in all fairness, you can't call yourselves the Suicide Machines and NOT sing about politics, (even though their most admired CD is exactly the opposite). Yet, this album does not come off as preachy (like Anti-Flag) or unresearched (like most Casualties songs)... Every track on this album has an edge that they have not traveled to until this date. Whether it be with lyrics or music, this album has it all! 13 songs and an extra 14th track called "95% of the world is third world," and only one or two songs i couldn't really get into. The intro to "Bottomed Out" saddened me quite a bit, but that's just about the only complaint I could possibly have. For fans of DBD and Battle Hymns, check out, TSM dishes out "Capitalist Suicide," "17% 18 - 25", and "Ghosts on Sunset Blvd." - If you're for some strange reason a fan of their self-titled or Steal This Record you may enjoy "Nuclear Generators", "Bottomed Out", or "Hands Tied"...either way, TSM adds so much to this new album that each and every song is more fast-paced, energetic, and realistic. And although this is more hardcore than they have previously ventured, it brings me back to the Battle Hymn days... "DDT!!!!!"

Completing the political transition, and it's not half bad 21 Aug 2005
By Nick Colosi - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
So, first, a quick history lesson. I'm a relatively new fan of the Suicide Machines. After hearing "High Anxiety" on Tony Hawk's Underground 2, I went out and bought A Match and Some Gasoline, and since that was an amazing CD, I went out probably a week or two later and bought their debut, Destruction by Definition. I'm hoping to get Battle Hymes and Steal this Record soon, but haven't had a ton of luck finding it in stores.

Anyway, on to the new one. For their sixth time around, the Suicide Machines have made a few changes, some good, some bad, but we could say this is pretty much a CD that familiarizes the machines with the new grounds they broke into with their debut on Sideonedummy. What with the hardcore screaming and the politics, we could say this is A Match and Some Gasoline, taken up a notch or two. It's an amazing CD, let's start by saying that, and I've been playing it almost every day despite the fact that I've bought 3 other CDs in the same week that I bought this one. Jay really brings that energy that we know from their debut album as well as alot of turbo charge anger, shall we say, that he showed us in their previous works. My only concern/criticism on this CD, is the way they're slowly but surely moving away from the punk scene. In a few songs, Capsule and All Systems Fail in particular, they drop the fast paced beat for a slow almost droning scream (We dig our own grave) which sounds like something you might find on a Lamb of God CD, and since I'm not a Lamb of God fan, or a fan of any heavy metal for that matter, I don't know if that's the greatest thing. Now I don't mind the screaming, in fact, when the energy is there, the screaming complements it well. For example, as heavy as it is, the title track blew me away when I heard it for the first time, because it's still got that old Suicide Machines energy that makes you wanna get up and jump around... or in this case maybe bang your head on something, all the same. However, some of the highlight tracks on the CD are the ones that are going back to some of the old catchy punk-ska theme that the guys started back in 96. These highlight tracks would be "Ghost on the sunset strip" "Junk" "Bottomed Out" and "Hands Tied" All in all, I say buy it if you've ever even considered the Suicide Machines, but keep an open mind, 'cause they play around with a few new concept that aren't exactly punk-ish.

An intense, in-your-face, hardcore, punk rock album 27 Nov 2005
By George Dionne - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The Good

The opening track "War Profiteering is Killing Us All" comes at you like a shotgun blast with frantic guitars and blood-thirsty vocals. Rapid drum beats and break-neck rhythms take a hold of "Ghost On Sunset Blvd," which also has one hell of a catchy chorus. Drug addiction is the focal point of "Junk". Sonically the track mixes a punk backbeat with hints of ska riffage. "17% 18 to 25" vents frustration with the lack of youthful voter turnout. A driving bass line riff leads the charge on "All Systems Fail;" another anti-government statement by the group. "Nuclear Generation" explores how those in power are slowly destroying our environment. "Hands Tied" explores more of that ska sound with funky bass and guitar tones.

The Bad

Nothing notable

The Verdict

This is a rather short album for fourteen tracks; about 30 minutes. What Suicide Machine's lack in length, they sure make up for in substance. War Profiteering is Killing Us All is an intense, in-your-face, hardcore, punk rock album with lots of social and political sensibility. You don't have to agree with their views, but at least listen to their side of the issues.

Rise Up Against This Corruption 17 Feb 2009
By Dustin Hotz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
War Profiteering is a great album which mixes ska and hardcore to an awesome mix with unstoppable aggression, energy, and anger. This is my first Suicide Machines album and I really enjoyed it. In days of Fall Out Boy, Panic at the Disco, All Time Low, All American Rejects (You get the point) it's hard to come by a punk album with a 90's feel and aggression to boot. Especially since many of the bands from the 90's (Goldfinger, Millencolin, No Use For A Name, The Offspring, Green Day, A.F.I., etc.) have changed their sound to a slower poppy pace to accompany the more popular sounds of the 2000's, it's awesome to find a band that starts rocking and doesn't let up til the end.

War Profiteering starts with a minute and twenty seconds of fist pumping aggression in the title track, and then mellows out a little with the more ska oriented second track with some cool bass lines and a catchy chorus. Ghost on a Sunset Strip is good and fun, Junk is another quick song followed by 17% 18 to 25 which is a good song, I really like the singing at the end. Capsule is awesome especially the end which is slow and sludgy and almost like metal music. All systems fail is kind of more experimental with some churning guitar and drums, Red Flag is awesome. The part with "rise up, rise up and fight..." is great it makes you want to pump your fist in the air and just scream along. Nuclear Generators is another ska track with a catchy chorus. Bottomed out is pretty good, however the clearance rack song is kinda forgettable. Hands tied is another catchy ska song and its followed by, I went on tour for 10 years and all i got was this lousy t shirt which is an awesome dub kinda song that ends the album on an interesting note until it picks up again in 5 or so minutes with the somewhat hidden track 95% of the world is third world which is a good catchy song.

Overall the album is short and sweet (very little over thirty minutes) and it is very full of power and aggression. I really enjoyed it. For anyone who enjoys political punk with a ska edge this album is really great. Check it out.

An outstanding album to wrap up an outstanding career. 16 Aug 2005
By Brent M. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Whew, The Suicide Machines, what can I say? With their 6th and saldy, final studio album, this Detroit-based quartet go out with a bang. This is by far their heaviest and most brutal album, and that just may be the reason why it is my second favorite, next to Destrucion by Definition, of course. There are a few breaks in the action, such as the bass driven, "Junk", track number four, and the punk-ish, "Bottomed Out", track number ten. The album then continues to finish up with the last 3 tracks being a bit less intense, but by all means still great. The lyrics in track thirteen are saddening if you actually listen, because Jay seems as if he regrets the path he's taken for the past 15 years of his life. For the most part, however, "War Profiteering is Killing us All" is a rebellion against Bush and modern politics. Although this album may be filled with great, great songs, I'm going to try to pick out my top favorites here :

2. Capitalist Suicide - I wouldn't exactly call it a "single", but I'd say it's the most familiar with people as far as this CD goes. This song just flows well, it'll be stuck in your head forever.
3. Ghost On Sunset Strip - It kind of reminds me of the Suicide Machines we saw on "A Match and Some Gasoline". It's upbeat, catchy, and the chorus is great.
4. Junk - Wow. Some powerful bass on this song, I think that's what makes it great, too. This track almost sounds live. I'd have to say it's tied for my favorite on the CD. "Is all your integrity gone?"
8. Red Flag - Can you say transitions? This song is very brutal at times, and at other it's that signature in-your-face punk only The Suicide Machines can do.
11. Rebellion Is On The Clearance Rack ( And I Think I Like It ) - The opening of this song will have you jumping off of a bridge and banging your head against cement. It's very heavy and I love the section where only Ryan and Jay are audible, "Let's let those f***ers win!"
12. Hands Tied - Ahh, sweet ska. This is the track that's tied with "Junk" as my favorite. I STILL cannot stop listening to this one. The bass solo is a killer idea.

Even though I still think The Suicide Machines could have gone on for many more years and made so much more great music, ( that I definitely would have gotten my hands on, no matter how I had to ) they've decided to put their career to a halt. I respect them for all of the music they've made and times they made my life awesome. Don't miss out on the last great album from TSM. Thank you for your time.
