Sometimes you have to leave everything behind and disappear.
Who knows where you might find yourself again?

“FORSAKEN PROFIT$, aggressive and putrid these motherfuckers will destroy everything you love and you'll still beg for more. Political, deep and silly as fuck they'll confuse and enthrall you, while having you mosh until you puke. Out of Atlanta, GA they keep the torch lit for amazing southern punk. Skumfucks for life, punks until they die these cats will fuck you up and keep you moving.” Amber Hicks - Dingo and the Bear
“good heavens! elements of rudimentary peni, aus rotten, anti-flag, filth... i love this” - Chuck Creasy Jr.
"This album starts kicking you in the teeth and does not let up until all 13 tracks are done. The music consists of all the best parts of several genres of music. It's punk. It's rock n roll. It's metal. This is a band for today. From the politically charged lyrics to the genre busting music. It's a vocal onion, as in there are so many layers to it that at times I found myself having to read two lines of text at the same time. 'Never Taken Alive' is more rock'n'roll than Axle Rose's used condom filled with whiskey. This thing will definitely not leave you bored, but instead not minding if replay is on. 4/5 stars."
Chris Lee - GAD
“Blood Money, the latest album by Forsaken Profit$, makes you feel like you just rediscovered your juvenile delinquency. It is as if you want to take down the world while fighting for your dying freedom with every bone in your body. With rage-filled lyrics and fast music, each song on this album grabs your attention and reminds you why you love hardcore punk to begin with. Seeing Forsaken Profit$ live at the Rotten Stitches CD release show was a blast. Atlanta knows how to throw a good show and Forsaken Profit$ knows how to get a crowd going— they’d better come up and bring Hate City to Boston in the near future.” - Nathan Bixby, Rebellion Pitt
“Right at this very moment the apocalypse is in motion . . . with the cataclysm transmogrifying life as you know it all around you, you are trying to save yourself from zombies, religious zealots, sinkholes, and cracks rending the earth’s surface — running with all your force and speed while trying to enjoy the last beer known to man. Trapped on a crossroads between the zealots and the zombies, you know you have to choose the way you want your life to end. Just as you are about to make a choice (thinking the zombies would be a more humane way to go), hell bursts through the cracks with an outburst of satisfyingly angry music. Deciding that hell has better music than either the zealots or zombies, you chug the last beer on earth and leap into the void to enjoy your new life in Hate City” - Nathan Bixby, Rebellion Pitt
“Coming out of Atlanta, GA, Forsaken Profits are ex-members of Heroin Bomb, Last Hope Down,The Loose Skrews,The Unacceptables and Convix of Society. Music that comes from the decaying souls of the ones who are fed up with the mundane and have the will to create a better world out of the ashes Consisting of Tyler Capehart, Clay Lloyd, Brian Emery, Davis Lloyd, Cody Z; Forsaken Profits deliver a nice dirty punk rock sound with their new single Politrix. These kids picked up a few lessons from good old fashioned thrash punk and put them to good use.” - jacks insanity, PoDunk Radio
“These kids are for real and they mean business. A single this solid can only mean that one hell of a full length is around the corner. Keep up the good work guys, and Make Atlanta Proud of ya.” - Jacks Insanity, PoDunk Radio
Robert John Becker proclaims "can’t go wrong with thrash punk. and their name is really cool."”
