GREAT REVERSALS mere mortals LP
After an impressive discography of eps and splits GREAT REVERSALS unleash their debut LP. Spanning 11 songs in total, "Mere Mortals" channels 90's heavyweights like TRIAL, INTEGRITY and HARVEST, while infusing occasional moments of post-rock flair. Lyrically, the record is a reflection on the often desperate and heart-breaking state of the human condition, as seen through the lenses of friends, family, and acquaintances. Recorded and mixed by Andy Nelson, and mastered by Brad Boatright, the weight of the record's subject matter is surpassed only by its crushing production, resulting in a jarring and colossal listen.
Features guest vocals by Greg from TRIAL.
LONGEST WAR / OLD GHOSTS split 7 inch
LONGEST WAR Fronted by Chris Logan of CHOKEHOLD fame and features former members of DESPAIR, SLUGFEST, UNION, and ACHILLES. LONGEST WAR brings a sound one would expect from members of these bands; chunky, heavy hardcore that sounds like it could have been written in 1995 but with modern recording.
OLD GHOSTS Comprised of x member of DEAD HEARTS after a brief hiatus OLD GHOSTS are back at it. Fast hardcore with doomy breakdowns and passionately screamed vocals. This is the follow up release to the "drowning" ep.
4 brand new tracks, 2 from each band. This is some awesome hardcore played by some all star hardcore veterans. This is on rose red colored vinyl and is limited to 120 on this color with this cover. Includes digital download.
SPIRITS / DIE FASTER split 7" / Cassette
Boston straight edge hardcore quintet SPIRITS team up with Virginia Beach home town heros DIE FASTER for a limited split 7 inch. SPIRITS (x Test of Time / Offsides) bust out a few new tracks of powerful melodic hardcore in vein of BATTERY and GO IT ALONE along with a cover song. DIE FASTER (x Ammunition / Endeavor) play thrashy no frills fast hardcore for fans of AMERICAN NIGHTMARE and TEAR IT UP.
This 7 inch is limited to 500 copies and come in very unique origami packaging. This will not be repressed. A heads up to collectors there is several different cover variations.
