Cease Fire - The Blind Lead The Blind, It's The Democratic Way 7"

Another somewhat random 7" from my collection. Cease Fire was a short-lived band from Lockport, NY that did, aside from demo's, only this 'The Blind Lead The Blind, It's The Democratic Way' 7". The 7", taking its title from a quote by American author Henry Miller, was released on Fetus Records in 1995. Cease Fire played a heavy mix of hardcore and (thrash) metal with gruff and throaty vocals belting out angry socio-political lyrics. Really solid stuff overall, even if it's nothing new or original. I have no idea if the band members did any bands before or after Cease Fire.

BTW, I numbered the tracks according to how they appear on the 7", not the incorrect order listed on the back/insert.
