Swallow the Blackened Hardcore Punk Anthem from FINAL DOSE “Like Rats”

There are no more fickle masters than the corporate capitalist overlords who are scheming every day to keep us distracted, angry, and poor! If they can promote one generation to hate another, one color to hate another, one lover to hate another, one culture to hate another, then they win and we all lose. All of these frustrating ideas are flying around my head while I watch the new video for the scathing and brutal blackened hardcore punk anthem from FINAL DOSE, “Like Rats”! This song could be the soundtrack to my thoughts as I watch the world revolve around one manufactured conflict after another. This band perfectly captures my incredulity, frustration, and wrath in its caustic rhythms and furious riffs! “Like Rats” is off their upcoming release Void Inside, out on September 15th via Neon Nile and Crew Cuts — pre-order it here. Right now, watch the video below and remember to always look behind the curtains at who is profiting from our suffering.

Final Dose “Like Rats”
Shot by Harriet Fusco and Bruno Fusco

María as “the oppressor”
Lili Currington as “the victim”


Always watching
Hang by my chains
Pierced from within
I hold the reigns

Obey or decease
Grip on the leash
Betray your family
For my pity

Sold on the street
You’re made to submit
Devoid of innocence
Capital punishments

War between neighbors
Gild the teeth
Of the grand slavers

Freedom in ruination
Flee like rats
Freedom in ruination
Flee like rats
