Venia - Frozen Hands - Blood & Ink Records #034 - 2009
-- Sunday, March 21, 2010
Venia. Christian Hardcore. Yeah.
Let me live my life, and I'll let you live yours.
That about sums it up.
If you are interested, hit up their myspace page for more info. If you are dying for merch, try your luck on Ebay.
That's all I have to say on that one.
No seriously, that's it.
Liferide S/T LP - Take It Back Records #002 - 2010
Every now and then, I get a cool package from Take It Back Records. Christian Unsinn seems like a cool dude, no matter what some anonymous people have to say. This time around, he sent me the Liferide LP. Feeling it.
Liferide has a real throwback vibe. Like I could picture any of these songs leading into Backtrack or Dissed And Dismissed or even Fade To Black. These guys play a strong hardcore very reminiscent of late 80s New York Hardcore. I dig it.
I also dig the limited nature of the vinyl. 300 total slabs. 200 on black, 100 on some color vinyl. This is hardcore vinyl for the real fans. Either you snap it up, or you miss out completely. React Records does something very similar. No need to flood the market. And thanks to torrents and the internet, the music will get around. Courtesy of being great music, these tracks will DEFINITELY be heard by a wide swath of people. Good for them.
So if you missed the vinyl, your best best is Ebay. Who would have guessed? You can probably still snap up some black vinyl here. No promises, but give it a go. You won't regret it.
