Biography

Doomsday scenarios are often predictive about an ending in life, revealing just what would occur if the world pushed itself to the brink of extinction. And the term “endgame” typically parallels such thinking, often evoking concepts of finality or termination.

But for Rise Against, this particular endgame might just be their beginning.

Editorial Reviews

Chicago's Rise Against might be seen as an outcast amongst its peers. Armed with The fury of classic punk acts such as Minor Threat & Bad Brains, they blend Intelligent vocals with a serious commitment to providing a positive alternative to the oft-dreary & disenchanted aura that engulfs most punk bands. "There are so many bands that sing about negative things, & we kind of wanted to show people it's OK to voice your opinions & stay positive. We just wanted to be more productive, lyrically." - JOE PRINCIPE.

5.0 out of 5 stars Relief in the form of an album February 14, 2005
Format:Audio CD
I thank Rise Against. If it wasn't for this band, I would have turned my back on punk rock utterly and totally. I was desperate, I was anxious, and I was alone. Bad Religion had just released their latest album, along with Social D and Pennywise. I had bought them and listened to them until I was sick of them. I had no where else to turn. I bought a couple nu-metal albums, a couple rap albums, and even a couple compilations. I was disappointed in punk rock. All of these new punk bands were pissing me off in a way that only God himself could understand. I chanced upon this album by flirting with one of the hot goth chicks up at Hot Topic. She told me about this band and said I need to check out this album. I thank that Hot Topic chick, I thank her to this very second in time. This CD blew me the f*ck away like a slug from a shotgun in the dome at point-blank range followed by a dump truck unloading about 100 pounds of cow sh*t on top of me and letting dung beatles feast on my remains. That's what happened. I was shocked. This album is by far one of the best albums I have EVER heard. I immediately bought "Black Masks and Gasoline" and "The Unravelling". "Black Masks" was equally as good but "The Unravelling" left me a little disappointed. But that's besides the point, this album alone is enough to rekindle the old punk rock spirit in a young punk rock kid.

4.0 out of 5 stars The best hardcore punk album in a long time! September 11, 2005
By Morton
Format:Audio CD
Rise Against is a band I have always liked, ever since they released their first album back in the day. To me it seems like punk is getting worse and worse as time goes by, but Rise Against seems to be getting better and better with each passing album, and here on Siren Song of The Counter Culture everything seems to be working perfectly. The vocals are great and the guitar is just as amazing this time around, and the lyrics/songwriting has never been better I dont know if they will ever top this album.

The album opens with maybe the hardest song on the album, 'State Of The Union' which features some killer vocals and is a great rocker to start off the album. perfect opener! 'The First Drop' is pretty cool but nothing really to stand out. 'Life Less Frightening' is a cool song one of the better ones on the album, mostly screaming on this song instead of singing but it really works for this song, I just hope that all the screaming doesnt kill the amazing vocals the guy has. 'Paper Wings' was the first single off the album and it didnt really do a whole lot on the radio or on the charts but it is a really really good song so I dont see why. 'Blood To Bleed' is good but not really special, but the next song sure is. 'To Them These Streets Belong' is one of the best songs on the album and one of the best song I have heard in a really long time, it starts off all slow and goes full throtal in to total punk and it's just plain amazing, a truly great song. The next song is my favorite song on the album, 'Tip The Scales' is such a killer song, even though the guitarriff is pretty repetitive I still love it and this is easily the best song on the album anyone who hears this song wount be able to help but love it to death! It's gonna be a classic if they ever release it!

4.0 out of 5 stars CD Grows on You September 20, 2005
Format:Audio CD
This CD isn't as powerful as their sophomore album, however, it is still an extremely good CD. Songs 1 & 7 are by far the best on the CD. Its starts of very well and carries itself very well. I am actually eagerly awaiting their next release because they seem to be fairly consistent. I recommend this CD, however, I would buy "Revolutions per Minute" first. Not that this CD isn't good, but its not as good as their sophomore effort. Rise Against has a unique style that has a very bright future ahead of them, just as long as they don't sell out like most bands.
