Clearly just by looking at the album artwork it's obvious that Northern Virginia's Drugs Of Faith isn't very happy with the world's state of affairs and in particular American president George W. Bush. I'm sure a lot of people agree with the band and Drugs Of Faith sure doesn't try to hide their political views.

Musically the trio is kind of hard to put a proper tag on as the band doesn't limit them to just one style. The music is a mix of different genres like punk, grind and hardcore. The trio succeeds in moulding it into a powerful and homogeny mix. The music goes in various directions all the time and this of course adds to the multiplicity of the songs. The only downside [which still is a minor thing] is the vocals. Richard Johnson utilizes a shouting vocal and it gets a bit one-tracked after a while, but that's also the only thing that is same-sounding. The trio has a very fat and full sound and they are good at getting the bass upfront without making it sound forced. Musically their ideas may not be entirely new, but Drugs Of Faith have a sound that they rightfully can call their own. Drugs of Faith is a good EP and it's EP that most definitely makes you want to hear more.
