Universal Order Of Armageddon
The Story

UOA fashioned its music in the image of a juggernaut, always threatening to spiral into wild, flaming chaos-often it did just that. Under the thumb of frontman Tonie Joy, UOA drew from a burgeoning pocket of punk focusing on the intensely personal, imbuing it with a sense of brooding madness brought to a head during live performances where members were known to bellyflop into the drum kit. Dropping from a bomb to a hushed whirl in a heartbeat, UOA made no distinctions when picking from punk's toolbox- equal parts bombast, dynamics, a poisoning ennui and explosive release.
