    I just listened to you all for the first time ever while out for a run, definitely the most lyrically impressive and relevant album (The Weapon of the Future) I've ever heard - food for thought; for the spirit. I am listening through for a second time already. This is what hip-hop should be about; then again, where would capitalistic, fear-mongering societies be with progressive, unifying and though-provoking music in the media? Thank you so much, Beltaine's Fire, I wish I was exposed to more music like this growing up. Any last.fm users have similar finds? Please share. Namaste all!

    Not bad, though sometimes seems too lazy. Nice anyway, especially 'To condemn the ocean'. Like the idea of mixing celtic folk with rap music. Also, 'anarchist celtic pagan folk rap' would make an awesome tag.

    This group is rockin! Just saw them at the Celtic Festival in Grass Valley over the weekend. Just a freaking awesome sound and message. I really hope they make it down to Sac sometime! My g/f and I really want to see them again, so we might just use it as a good excuse to take a trip down to the Bay Area after the semester is over. I highly recommend them to anyone with an open and free mind....liking celtic music helps too :P
