BYO Split Series, Volume V (2004)

Details Release Date: Apr 20, 2004; Lead Performances: Alkaline Trio and One Man Army

Two veteran punk bands -- Alkaline Trio and One Man Army -- get six songs apiece on this fiery album. Trio's standouts, ''Dead and Broken'' (with guest vocals by Naked Raygun's Jeff Pezzati) and the Manson-family epic ''Sadie,'' showcase their talent for pairing grisly lyrics with infectious harmonies. Army's anthems are more garbled but no less spirited, with a middle finger pointed right at the cultural mainstream.
