"It's pretty much about how we need to take back our country's soul," says Wild Truth singer/guitarist Sven-Erik Seaholm of the inspiration behind This Golden Era, the group's first CD in ten years. "While we were all 'getting ours' to 'keep America rolling,' a bunch of evil fuckers took over the country, turned it upside down, and shook it until its pockets were empty. So, of course, the next 'right thing to do' was to drag us all into a quagmire of never-ending Middle-Eastern conflict. While we're all saluting the high-flying banner of oil and trying not to feel bad by eating a pill to cure everything imaginable, there are actually guys on the floor of Congress arguing that preserving nature isn't as high a priority, in light of the impending apocalypse."
