Small Axe is the debut studio album from Verbal Terrorists. It features 12 tracks of real Hip Hop inspired by dubstep, grime, electro, folk and above all else the capitalist hegemony we live under! Guests include Hip-Hop enigma Lims and local legends Red Music and the Old Rope String Band. The entire project was self catered and paid for out of the pockets of the group members. It was released on VT’s own community based record label, White Elephant Sounds. Please show your support for independent and revolutionary music by buying it now...
Here’s what some other people had to say about it:
"Verbal Terrorists’ excellent debut Small Axe delivers just what it says on the tin – ‘Governmental advisory: seditious lyrics’ – with passion, panache and intelligence and some banging beats to boot...
...Enunciative skill and dexterity shine throughout, offering political insight without arrogance or contrivance...
...this CD represents a valuable addition to anyone’s library – I’ll certainly be enjoying it on a regular basis"

“The album’s soundscape is as eclectic as you’re likely to hear from any hip-hop album out there... the lyrics are no less captivating than the clever musical elements holding them together.
Needless to say; Small Axe is sure to beat ten shades out of most rap albums released these days.”

"Small Axe is a set of facts, opinions and, it has to be said, choooons... "
"There’s the local, familiar level. The political level. The British society level. The international understanding. And just an all round library of first class, PhD dissertations."

“This blistering release nails their colours (principally red) to many a mast. But their polemic doesn’t get in the way of an inventive sound...Great Stuff”
