GFK (band)

GFK (Government Fury Kills) were a Canadian hardcore metal band, formed in Quebec City in 1996. According to their biography, they are "a head-on, relentless blend of hardcore and metal that actually manages to thoughtfully and intelligently address issues of relevance to anyone living under the current downward spiral of neo-liberal capitalist globalization."

In 2000, their first album, The Social Responsibility Theory was released on their own New Horizon Records label, followed quickly by In Defence of Politics, also on New Horizon. Their most recent album, If Liberty Isn't Given, It Should Be Taken, is an extremely heavy and politically-based representation of the band's roots. They released in 2006 a 5-song EP entitled Thanatopolicy and a split with I Hate Sally on Underground Operations in 2007. Since summer 2007 GFK's working on their next album. GFK have broken up in 2009 for different personal reasons.
