Liberty N’ Justice are teaming up with Roxx Records for a very special strictly Limited Edition Pressing of their recently released‘Chasing A Cure EP’. Originally this EP was released as a digital only download and made available for a donation of $7.50 or more.
Now and for a limited time you can own a CD copy of the ‘Chasing A Cure EP’ with a portion of the proceeds being donated to The Epilepsy Foundation. This new version of the EP will also be expanded to now become the ‘Chasing A Cure LP’ and will now include both some brand new and previously unreleased tracks!
Liberty n’ Justice are trying to create awareness of epilepsy and raise money for research to find a cure with this special release. This disease hits very close to home for Justin Murr and his family. Justin’s oldest daughter, Trinity Paige Murr, was diagnosed with epilepsy at age 7. For the past five years she has battled through daily medication, hospital stays, cluster seizures, induced comas, three weeks in the ICU – and finally even under going brain surgery.
All of these artists donated their talent and time for this EP while the cover artwork was created and contributed by Rex Zachary and the CD layout and design will be contributed by Scott Waters. The line up on the original EP alone is enough for the hard rock fan to want to purchase this CD! But also check out just some of the tracks being included…

Rev Theory is back with their third effort Justice. After the success of their last album, Light it Up, I expected the band to travel down that same dreaded path that Saving Abel, and Theory of a Deadman moved on to trying to sound like the next Nickelback. With producer Terry Date (who has also produced records for Soundgarden, Pantera, and Metal Church), Rev Theory attempted to get a more live feel with Justice, and to my ears they have succeeded. While Justice lacks the big stadium style anthems of Light it Up, I honestly believe the music is better on Justice.
While Justice does have a couple of Nickelback like moments, there are also some heavy tunes that remind me of Stone Temple Pilots. The music on the opening cut, “Dead In A Grave” is the first song that has that STP grungy sound to it. The song has plenty of attitude, and shows quickly that Rev Theory is here to rock.
I have to be honest. I am not very fond of the title track “Justice” that was released as the first single from the album. I am sure the song has what it takes to get plenty of airplay on the Clear Channel rock stations out there, but this is my least favorite song on Justice.
To my ears, “Hangman” is much catchier than “Justice” and ought to be under consideration for Rev Theory’s next single. This song is MUCH better.
“Fire” and “Say Goodbye” are both slower numbers that could easily be hits for Rev Theory. While both have that Nickelback like vibe, they also pretty good. I have always like Rich Luzzi’s voice, and he is in fine form on both songs.
I prefer the heavier numbers on Justice, and “Loaded Gun”, ‘”Guilty By Design” and “Wicked Wonderland are easily the best ones on the CD.
Overall, I found myself missing the big hits of Light it Up, but I have enjoyed the music on Justice. To my ears Justice is more of a grower type of record. It might not bite you the first time around, but the songs get better with repeated listens. Check it out!
