THIS TOPIC IS STILL SUBJECT TO RESEARCH
Along with some other records, I received the second 7″ of RISE ABOVE. Very cool to have. The sound has in my opinion quiet evolved compared to the first 7″. Not in a bad way, because it is more daring. But also more conform to the hardcore of that time, I mean more recognizable. I guess because they weren’t so much alone with their morals and believes anymore. They already warmed the fans up and themselves to I guess. But they are still making an uncompromisable message. The band was pretty go-ahead for Europe, with Hazel (the female bassplayer) singing a back off song. You can feel the anger from later H8000 projects already coming in this song. On the back off the insert there is a picture that was used for the limited first sevenich.
This 7″ is actually an official bootleg. It was the ‘B Is For Boston’ that was repressed by a friend of the band and they called it ‘B Is For Bootleg’. The label name they used was Warehouse Records. And the record has catalogue number House #01
My record has a dark orange sleeve, not sure if there are other sleeves in circulation though. Here’s the picture of this release.
