Stigmata is a band that rocks hard and is constantly in your face. "Do Unto Others…" proves that.

However, the overall effect of this CD is one of bleak hopelessness with absolutely no escape. If you're going to write and record songs about major drug abuse and begging your mother for drug money, put it in a "Rage Against the Machine" format and make some stinging social commentary. Don't just tell us how awful it is.

Stigmata: the music rocks, but the subject matter sucks.
