For Blood and Empire covers all the hard angst you'd want from any punk band while being danceable and teaching stuff to the blind masses.

"One Trillion Dollars" is my favorite song on the CD. It really showcases lead singer Justin Sane's heartwrenching voice. The tone he sings it in combined with the lyrics themselves are really heartbreaking, but the truth hurts as they say. This CD helps us process the awful truth about the current state of our government, understand it better, and maybe even feel like doing something about it. Right after we've finished getting beat up in the circle pit.

"The Press Corpse" and "I'd tell you but..." are close seconds. I'm willing to forgive Anti-Flag's ever more closely edging pop into their punk because every song is so packed full of facts, pleas, and energy.

Long live "For Blood and Empire". I hope this record can inspire the kids to make changes.

What's wrong with getting more money?...lol. Spending time worrying about someone else making money, only suggests that you are already engulfed thinking about money.
Who cares! ;)

I feel that Anti Flag stayed true to their art and themselves. After reading an interview in Verbicide I understand their position on signing to a major label and feel that they did it on their own terms. Using a major label to reach a broader audience isn't a crime.. especially if you feel that you have something important to say and want to reach a broader audience. (Anti Flag wants to be taken seriously by mainstream media, signing to a label is a strategic move for them)

Remember, there is no 401k in punk rock.
Do you work a job that you don't like? ..you shouldn't.
That's the beauty in all this.

To explain further:

Anti Flag is doing something that they love, getting their message out without restraints or censorship and making a living. I used to think way too much about the ideology of punk rock and then I grew up...lol

The reality is, you have to make money in order to survive.
Most kids are in and out of Punk by the time they are 23 (I'm 31) they can't continue to be in bands because they have to survive.

I give Anti Flag tons of credit and am envious of them.
Who wouldn't want to live out their dreams, educate people and work towards the betterment of society...all in a days work.

Many people are quick to complain and yell "sell out"
To deem Anti Flag as "sell outs" is unfair and somewhat hypocritical ...anybody for that mater that punches a time clock is a sell out.

A couple rhetorical questions:
Are you doing what you love? Are you making a difference with your time on this planet? When you work, is it on your own terms?
If not... you too may be a sell out!
Think about it.

This is one fine record done by the political boys of Anti Flag. THe Album is extremely political but what do you expect their Anti Flag. And they are political in a good way. They can pull it off without being cheesy. ANyway, every song on here was a hit to me. But i do have a couple of favorites and they are, This is the End (for you my friend), State Funeral, and Cities BUrn. But all the other songs are pretty much just as good. If you werent happy with The Terror State, then pick this up for sure cuz its 10 times better than that. This album gave me a refound respect for the band

A bit more mainstream of a sound, but still nothing close to the pop-punk crap that's on the radio and the video channels (fall out boy, etc.). This is pure punk at it's best. These guys are on their way to make a name for themselves without selling out. Their message remians the same and clearer than ever. Buy this album. 10% goes to a good cause.

I have been an Anti-Flag fan for about 5 years and I have always thought that the political messages in their songs sounded a bit pretentious and contrived. However I thought that they were great political anthems so to speak. The music on their previous albums is what drew me in to their work. I thought that the raw punk sound and angry vocals were what made them. On For Blood and Empire Anti-Flag has greatly improved on their lyrical abilities. The songs have more meaning and also have more rallying points around them. The music on the other hand isn't as raw or energetic as albums such as Underground Network or A New Kind of Army. I do like the music and feel that they are going towards a wider audience with a better message than they had before. I have come to the conclusion that big record labels don't even spend time looking at the lyrical content they just look for a "mainstream" sound to the music. If they did spend analyzing the lyrics they wouldn't let this album ship to retailers. All in all I really like this CD and strongly encourage any Anti-Flag fan, any punk rock fan, or anyone who is interested in protest music to buy this album.

This CD is killer and it just hit us like a ton of bricks. No one new when it was coming out or even if it was coming out and then it did. We walked in saw it, bought it, and got blown away. This one is a underground masterpiece and Anti-Flag really did a mazing job making this album work. By it now. Totally Rad Dude!
