xhrl_ Chokehold, a metallic hardcore band from Canada, with Beastie Boys touches. Their 2nd LP Content with Dying is easily their angriest and most passionate. This 1995 LP is impressively simplistic. Keeping a mid-tempo on the LP, they plod and chug along with some headbanging riffs, well shown on the opening track "Underneath". Not the most varied record, it's the same kind of chuggy riffs through the whole LP. Yet this LP remains one of the heaviest in the genre. Essential for any 90s hardcore fan!

Track Name: Underneath
deceitful is all you've been tear away at the false uncaring skins a corporation with bloody hands is what lays underneath the lies you sold the lies you told the blind leading the blind in a war against non existent enemies all the while you hide under your greed soaked camouflage your corporate camouflage now you walk a separate path now you're the puppet you're one of them I see your strings
Track Name: Afraid Of Life
turn on your world sit back and relax all you need is an addiction at your own fingertips see what they turned you into the media covers us in fear telling us we can't compete with the outside world better to stay inside because we have everything you need take a look outside and see what they don't want you to see pelted by violent images afraid to live our lives beyond these four walls destined to become no more than ratings never break the grip they have on you
Track Name: Content With Dying
somewhere along this line we were stripped of identity creativity developed this sheep mentality of following everything cultureless we are entertained by senseless sitcoms and infomercials it angers me to see a nation reduced to a full scale game of follow the leader they have us fooled reaching for the amerikkkan dream trapped in the 9-5 it's like swimming upstream do as they tell you free thought is bound to fail we are dying and no one seems to care to busy rushing to a go no-where career you think you're free you just can't see the bars we’re all in prison in these free countries of ours you're not free you never were
Track Name: Not A Solution
enough of these pre-school politics finger pointing generalizing you are not the savior you are not the warrior gagging on your ignorance you couldn’t figure life out if you had a map yet you're so quick with your worthless facts enlightened by some holy vision she tries to explain and you refuse to hear her now the state owns her rights is that what you want you call yourself pro-life I call you pro murder your small minded thinking is not a solution ANTI CHOICE IS ANTI-SOLUTION ANTI CHOICE IS ANTI-HUMAN ANTI CHOICE IS ANTI-WOMAN
Track Name: Religion On A Stick
how can you just show up there the white knight that’s going to save the day the only reason for being there is not to feed them food but the Christian way believe in our white God and you will be fed
but to have your own religion means you'll starve to death religion on a stick you force feed the masses the most weak and willing is where you begin and until there is one world with one religion only then will you end are you a missionary for God or a missionary for money you say you're caring while you televise a guilt trip to make you rich and how many die while your pockets keep getting filled the best damned business move was your story of Christ being killed your God is nothing more than a dollar sign and you don't care how many people die you spend more on commercializing a cause than you do on feeding a nation
Track Name: Regression
why does the law view women as little less than human why are their lives worth less than the property of the state you know your country is sick when you get more for robbery than you do for rape yet it happened before our very eyes we allow these laws to exist there is a greater value put on money than on human life and still we sit passively we let these laws classify us into men women and black and white they discriminate by dropping the label of human and stripping away our rights until we realize everyone is equal nothing is going to change how much longer can we afford these laws to stay the same not a minute longer because our lives are at risk they don't give a fuck about you the system is full of shit how can stealing money even compare to the crime of rape these laws are not for people they only benefit the stat
Track Name: Conditioned
to protect and serve to dictate and abuse you make me hate you you created me with your superior attitude and you expect me to respect you and I wouldn’t care if you died, right before my eyes I feel no sympathy watching your demise and to side with you is like siding with the iron fist and to support you is like supporting a rapist and I wouldn’t do that you made me what I am, you made me hate you that's why it makes me smile when someone kills a pig or two
Track Name: Sidetracked
does any body care or are they to busy watching and unlearning glued to the TV while the rest of the world is burning catching your attention by televising the latest human tragedy focusing your energy on the furthest thing from reality and who knows what goes on while hooked to their lies as long as the public as the public isn’t looking, do they care who dies and they have their ways of keeping you occupied so you can't see what they're trying to hide do you trust your government do you trust a higher power do you think the only world happenings are what you see in the news each hour why do we know everything about the last day and neglect the last 50 years would you even question that things don't go on that no one hears you're sidetracked by a fictional diversion you're fooled into trusting a murderous monster shut it off stop being so numb to the truth
Track Name: You're The Only One
put aside your idiocy it's not going to change the world it's not part of history you're the only one do you think anyone understands what's more important the world's problems or the X on your hand do you want to hide under a rock and pretend no problems exist you might be comfortable but half the world isn’t if you don't take time to question how will you come up with any solution your stagnant numb comfortable go back to sleep doing it for the kids you’re full of shit this could be a piece of the revolution but you're trying to kill it brain numbing unthreatening unquestioning afraid of change too content with keeping everything the sam
Track Name: Tooth And Nail
the mindless trash just seems to grow unquestioning acceptance and it's getting old there's no place here for any religion no place for simple answers and pre-made decisions try to look reality straight in the eye and watch religion become this scenes demise I can't sit back and watch this rise brainwashed sheep in a rebellious disguise no you wont go unchallenged there's no such thing as simple answers and what makes you think you have some kind of goddamn insight this is a war so pick your side no middle ground, no I can't decide no compromise till the plague is dead got to start using that brain in your head this is about questioning living and learning making decisions with your own mind not about preaching an unproven gospel or blindly following and wasting out time cause we're the sinners we're the weak that don't believe more like we're the strong able to think not be deceived by a book of nothing wake up and be saved this is you fucking salvation
Track Name: Sell It For What It's Worth
so what did we learn and what has become of this after all is raped and sold to the highest bidder or the trendiest fucker or whatever it's good for this was ours to live and be part of not impersonal and distant (untouchable) or what you made it scrapped every ounce of sincerity and asked in a bigger crowd with smaller minds that easily consume your lie I'm still here watching our energy and dignity dissolve into your pockets thank you for selling everything I hold and value my youth my world take these words to my grave cause your filth never scratched me never tempted me, never needed it wouldn’t stoop to your level was never about that never will be never sold our dignity never wanted your instant stardom fuck you and everyone who did
Track Name: You'll Despise Yourself
is this something to do between classes your rebellion is expiring fast because in four years you’ll have a career and all this will be a part of your past you're just part of the system another cog in the machine soon to be what you despise and you could never wipe your hands clean so this is a part of your maturity it's a choice you fucking made is this the price of growing older your path has been pre-paved put your hobby to rest because you had your cake and ate it too put away the part time revolutions don't worry well pick up the slack again
Track Name: S.E.W. (Minimum Wage)
sleep eat work die with nothing all security has been diminished overpopulated for more rats in the race less than nothing when it's all finished slit each others throat to get one step ahead that's the way they made this system and if they don't fit the part lower class slaves then they have ways to fucking kill them diminished rights lower wages a million jobs for $4.50 an hour placing addictions on every corner stripping our dignity and self power when will we ever have control have enough to feed be secure rise up and take it back we are not machines not to be shut off not to be used for what you think it's worth we make your economy go around and things better fucking change things better fucking change
