Suicidal Tendencies : The Art Of Rebellion 1992

Suicidal Tendencies is an American crossover thrash and hardcore punk band.

Formed in Venice, CA, during the early '80s, the group's leader from the beginning was outspoken vocalist Mike Muir. The outfit specialized in vicious hardcore early on building a huge following among skateboarders, lending a major hand in the creation of skatepunk before turning their focus eventually to thrash metal.

The Art of Rebellion is the sixth studio album by American crossover thrash band Suicidal Tendencies. It was released in 1992 on the Sony Music label.
It is widely considered to be Suicidal's "experimental" album. Mike Clark himself acknowledged this, but also mentioned that the album was not planned that way, and was just a reflection of the band's musical growth.

( On the group's earliest albums, vocalist Mike Muir specialized in intense, angst-ridden rants, harrowing but one-dimensional. He has since developed into a rock-solid vocalist, his voice a powerful and fluid instrument. Muir still delivers emotionally ferocious spoken-word segments on "Nobody Hears" and "I Wasn't Meant to Hear This," but the trademark is woven into good songs rather than being an end onto itself. A clenched fist in a velvet glove -- or is it an open hand in chain mail? -- whichever, The Art of Rebellion packs a punch that should win over new devotees while maintaining the group's hardcore following.

  1. do you have nick riff - freak element? thanks

    1. here's Freak Element @320kbps:

      επισης, ευχομαι Καλη Χρονια στο blog και στους αναγνωστες

    2. Ευχαριστούμε μακρυμάλλη φίλε μας για το link . Καλή χρονιά και σε σένα .

    3. Damn, what a perfect timing,..! i gave up looking for Nick Riff's releases several months ago as the only thing i could found was some albums published on 00i00's blog but all long gone..( i couldn't request it there as anonymous,) .. but here i was, giving it another despaired try (while listening to ''A Psychedelic Psauna'' compilation) when i found this,.. so i feel very lucky x) & that's why i though i'd share this thought instead of "Hitting & running" like a damn leech.. So thank you very very much 00i00 for responding & sharing, this really means a lot to me as psychedelic addict, (Nick Riff, Al Simones, S.t. Mikael, Bari Watts,...) any artist on that level is worth time, money effort, appreciation,.. more than any phony 'Indie rock band' with a fine b*tch on vocal & a million listeners on musical portals... Anyway Thank you once again (anything like anything going under the name of Nick Riff is highly appreciated).// Thank you too Kostas for hosting this "side project" x) i've already tasted your fine aspirin several times buy the way (especially the Greek psychedelic/post-punk section). // Thanks to Anonym. for requesting here & elsewhere (you did all blogs having Nick Riff tags on, i'm impressed x))
      if i'm allowed, i'll add - after apologizing for being talkative - a link to another Nick Riff publication, just for the sake of sharing: (CBR @256kbps)
      May the Fuzz be with you.

  2. καλή χρονιά εύχομαι
    τον έχω το δίσκο (άσχετο)
