DROPDEAD - Dropdead 1998 LP
£19.00

Purple vinyl.

Completely remixed by Kurt Ballou and mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege. The second album of sonic-grind, total obliti-core from Rhode Island's deafening devastators. Eighteen angry hardcore/thrash songs. Originally released in 1998, the first 500 came with a black on black screenprinted cover. 18 songs in a decidedly more Swedish HC vein, but with the usual odd breaks and fast parts throughout. More melodic than the first LP in some ways, and noisier in others.

Dropdead formed officially in January of 1991 in Providence RI, but the original 4 person lineup met in December 1989. We played music together for a year before a lineup change saw Bob and Ben switch instruments, a name change, and a great increase in speed and intensity. The idea was to play pissed off, aggressive, no bullshit hardcore punk thrash with personally political lyrics. Musically the influences drew from bands as diverse as Confuse, Siege, Larm, Crass, Swans, Infest, SSD, Pandemonium, Icons of Filth, Gauze, Septic Death, Discharge, Anti-Cimex and a slew of others. The first show was in April of 1991 with Born Against and Rorschach. The band continues to embrace a strong "Do It Yourself" work ethic, booking their own shows and releasing their own records via Armageddon Label. Over the years Dropdead has played hundreds of shows and fests, recorded three albums plus numerous splits and EP's, toured the USA and Europe numerous times, as well as Australia and Japan.
