A Look at White Power Music Today

MSR's motto claims the hate rock distributor has been "In Service of the Anglo-Saxon Race since 1988!" Being one of the oldest, however, doesn't necessarily equate to being one of the best. On the Free Your Mind Productions message board, various members have accused MSR of bootlegging, a quite common practice in the semi-underground white-power music industry.
Although MSR is actively recruiting bands to put out hate music in different genres, such as country, bluegrass, folk and electronic, its Web site mostly peddles traditional hate rock bands, both foreign and domestic. It also sells Skrewdriver stickers, Nazi Skinhead videos and the Blood & Honour Field Manual, a guide on "how to be an effective racialist" that instructs its readers that "lone white wolves must be respected and left alone to stalk the worst enemies of our race."
