Against Empire's Thieves and Leeches is a 2011 hardcore punk album that blends '80s bare bones hardcore with a thick layer of crusty and metallic punk bile. The album is comprised of seven tracks, which stretch out to a surprisingly epic 42 minutes. It kicks off with an ironic capitalism-extolling sample on “Thieves and Leeches”, and then lays out its charges in a frank and furious manner.
The album is full of blistering guitars, pounding drums, and angry vocals that deliver a message of anti-capitalism, anti-war, and social justice. The songs are catchy and memorable, and the album is a must-have for fans of hardcore punk and crust punk.
If you're looking for an album that will get your blood pumping and your mind racing, then Thieves and Leeches is the album for you. It's a powerful and uncompromising statement against the forces of oppression and exploitation.
