Originally released in 1993 by Vermiform Records as BORN AGAINST's abbreviated second LP on 10", Prank Records' extreme disdain of the 10" format dictates that this record be re-mastered and released as a 45 RPM 12". Bouncing from strongly written condemnation of the death penalty ("Murder the sons of Bitches") to the classic anti- right wing radio pundit ("Set Your A.M. Dial for White Empowerment") to the uber-ridiculous punk scene war piss-take ("Born Against Are Fucking Dead") and special talk show host guest appearances, Battle Hymns of the Race War is another explosive dose of furious punk rock, with wailing guitars, screamed vocals and drum pounding. However, Battle Hymns begins to peer far beyond the confines of a "hardcore" band musically, exploring tangents and threads that would eventually land the band members in bands as diverse as MEN'S RECOVERY PROJECT, YOUNG PIONEERS and UNIVERSAL ORDER of ARMAGEDDON. There have been minor changes to the artwork to accomodate the changes from the 10" to a 12"; look for the CD version on Kill Rock Stars .
