This is essential hardcore right here. Seriously, one of the best hardcore records I've heard. Everything is excellent; the production, the performances, the songwriting, everything. The songwriting in particular is way more developed and complex than most standard hardcore/powerviolence bands. Constant riff changes, tempo changes, etc. Definitely an inspiration to more modern fastcore bands like Sidetracked. 19 songs in about 14 minutes, perfect length for me. It doesn't waste time and it doesn't leave me wanting more
I love the artwork too. I think it's a definite homage to King Crimson's - "In The Court of The Crimson King", but I'm not sure if that was the intent. If it wasn't, then it's a hell of a coincidence.
One-sided insert with lyrics.
Clean black vinyl. Very nice label too, I love that little face in the center.
This is a fairly easy record to find, and for a decent price too. I know Tankcrimes and Vinyl Junkie have some copies. Do yourself a favor and get it if you haven't already, it's well worth it!
