about

'Corporate Pollution' is the third studio album to date from Irish based Alternative Rock/Grunge outfit Paradox. From the raw garage grunge sounds of 'Circle of Growth' in 2000 to the more Alternative melodic sounds of 'Sacred' in 2004 'Corporate Pollution' displays the bands most powerful sound to date. 11 songs were recorded and mixed in 9 days @ Data Recording Studios in County Kerry, Ireland, July/August 2010. Just like the previous two Paradox albums brothers Pete and Mike Mac play all instruments. Pete plays all guitars, bass, vocals while Mike plays all drums, piano and vocal harmonies. They also co/produce the album. A few of the songs appeared as acoustic tracks on the Pete Mac solo album 'In Limbo' in 2009 but were re-recorded with drums and a full band sound for this album. On average 6 electric guitars were recorded per track along with triple vocal harmonies, 2 acoustic guitars, lots of bass, piano for certain tracks, a female vocal for one track and two days of drumming. From the opening track 'Corporate Pollution' with it's churning guitar riffs and political sneers to the melodic melancholic melodies of 'Repress Excess' or the distorted confusion that is 'Mind Mud' the albums diverse mix and ever changing pace create an interesting and unique sound.

Track Name: Mr. Bureaucracy
Mr. Bureaucracy can you control the air I breathe
A broken democracy you won't control my sanity
Mr. Bureaucracy can you control my privacy
A state of security you can't control my mind it's free

I'm broken down by what I need freedom of choice not good for me
My stomach hurts your hungry greed can't put me down I'm on my knees

Mr. Bureaucracy can you control my destiny
The clothes I wear the food I eat the lies I'm told my self esteem
Mr. Hypocrisy can you destroy my hopes and dreams
A blindfold monopoly you can't destroy my mind it's free

I'm broken down by what I need freedom of choice not good for me
My stomach hurts your hungry greed can't push me down I'm on my knees

It's better to stay down don't have to think for yourself
It's better to play dumb don't have to prove yourself
There's never a way out you gotta work for your debt
It's better to break out you gotta free yourself

The government won't leave me alone, I'm tired and spent I'm tired and old
The government won't leave me alone, I'm tired and spent just leave me alone
Leave me alone

I'm all jaded intimidated, My colour's faded I'm liberated
Make me sad, make me beg, contents read, weighed and fed, I'm half dead drained and bled
It won't be long..
