Debut LP from this Hardcore Punk band from Wales featuring members from bands such as Rectify, In The Shit, This System Kills, Rejected, Bring To Ruin and Regret.

A new band made up of veterans of the Welsh punk scene deliver up a relentless tirade of social commentary wrapped in well played hardcore punk, says Nathan Brown

Taking the old Mark Twain saying and turning it on its head, the cover of Social Experiment’s album gives a fair indication of the message the vinyl inside delivers. Our world is in a state of demise – just look at the way humans treat each other, animals and the environment…it ain’t humane. The lyric sheet, which folds out into a poster, makes the case in well written songs that pack in plenty of words and anger, not taking any short cuts or pulling any punches. At times prosaic, the lyrics have the forcefulness of Conflict when they were at the top of their game.

As the title track summarises: “Look at the world we have become, look at the damage we have done, this is our home, our only one, so why do we seem so intent killing this planet that we rent, the time to act has reached the point of no return”. Other songs dissect the individual issues that make up this whole. Like Conflict, animal liberation is a cause close to their hearts. Unlock The Cage decries the use of animals for testing and ingredients, Tilikum tells the sorry story of a killer whale’s 34 years in captivity , and Bloody Traditions targets hunting. They don’t just talk about problems, they highlight solutions “Traditions are old and need to end, support the sabs who protect and defend”. The title of Production Line Soldier is a give away and Box of Lies is a great synonym for your TV.

Meanwhile, It Makes no Sense to Me is a reasonable response to racism. And while most of these songs could well have been written in the 1980s, Clones is an inditement of the anti-social impact of social media “Humans evolving, there’s an army of clones, just millions of people, staring down at their phones, there’s no real conversation, it’s all updates or tweets, over two thousand friends, but nobody speaks”. - (Nathan Brown - Louder Than War)
