Righteous Jams - Rage Of Discipline 
By Ryan Martine

Righteous Jams is indeed, a very righteous band!
 
This is the first full-length release from Boston's own, Righteous Jams! This album tells it like it is (from their perspective at least) in a no nonsense approach that lacks in a lot of music nowadays. It's hard-hitting and solid. Like a ton of bricks on your head.
 
I first caught notice of this band while I was viewing a Boston Beatdown DVD with a buddy of mine. The sample song they used in it was a jam called "Scream and Shout".  The vocalist's style was so good and unique that I just had to check them out! And I'm glad that I did.
 
Rage of Discipline has 10 songs and is about 15 minutes long. That's right. 15 MINUTES LONG. The longest song out of these 10 tracks is two minutes & 2 seconds! This album is abrasive & to the point. It's about being strong in the face of adversity, and speaking out about the bulls*** that goes along with humanity.   
 
It's not exactly what you'd expect from a "typical" hardcore album though. I mean, the vocalist DOES remind me of the singer of YOUTH OF TODAY at times, but the range that these guys play at is NOT your typical hardcore assault. The style is more of a straight ahead dirge in contrast to the blast-beat stylings synonymous with hardcore music, or even the guttural vocals that has emerged in most hardcore circles today. There are points in the album where they'll cut loose and thrash a few chords, but overall, the beat is steady and sure. Matched with the powerful vocals, it's an undisputed blend that wins me over on this album.
 
 The song "Scream and Shout" has to be my favorite track on here due to the upbeat nature of it even though it is a song about mind games that people play, "Once you quit playin games, I'll stop complainin!"   The track "Green Eyes" starts out with, "Don't expect us to think like you or buy into your stupid rules". 

A lot of these JAMS deal with the real human element of fake people, betrayal, or lame cliques. There is SO much social commentary here that IS relevant in our modern-day society! A society that is consumed with material gain, getting f***ed up, and screwing people over. Righteous Jams speaks out against that.
 
When I first heard this band, I was hooked. Their style is unique and their talent is apparent. If you want to hear the truth spoken with conviction, Rage of Discipline is for you.
