Cheerleaders For Imperialism

Here's a record that I've had for a while from one of my favorite fast hardcore bands ever; the mighty Hellnation. I try to pick up all the Hellnation records I can, and out of all the ones I have, this has to be my favorite. OG press on Slap-a-Ham records, black vinyl, 33 RPM.

Whole lotta songs on this bad boy. All of em featuring a dude you might have heard off named Chris Dodge on bass bringing his signature clanky bass tone. Every song on here is a rager, nothing is slow, it never stops. Just a constant barrage of blasting hardcore for 18 minutes.

I don't know if I can call Hellnation fastcore, though that title would certainly fit the music. I'm super bummed these guys broke up. A few members are in Brodys Militia, but so far they haven't clicked with me yet. Sucks.


My Hellnation collection is still only modest at best, but I'm always eager to build it up. I have my eyes on a couple reasonably priced albums on discogs. Definitely more Hellnation posts in the future. GO FAST OR GO HOME!!
