This post is to share what records I obtained in the last month and that I haven’t been able to make a post about. So this is another trademark RANDOM RECENT RECORDSCORES post!
The first one is very interesting to hear; you can already feel the metallic sound in hardcore coming on this one. Because this was released in 1989 it is one of the earlier bands that did this. This one is red vinyl out of 1500 and exist also on black out of 3500, which brings us to 5000 in total. So for a hardcore label this was a very ambitious first press.
EDIT: not to be confused with the Nu-metalcore band who wears those masks and plays nowadays. Thanks Jasper!
Another record that was in the process of making a band famous, is this HARD STANCE 7″. As far as I know this was the first record that Zach De La Rocha along with others made, in his way of becoming huge with his later band Rage Against The Machine. It comes on Clear wax but haven’t got a clue about the pressing details although I know it exists on black wax also. I thought this was essential to hear and have so I picked it up along with the Slipknot 7″ on ebay.
This is the most cool record from that auction round of the same American seller; ENCOUNTER “Lost” on purple wax. As to way I bought this; it was a band that did a split with Blindfold, so it wasn’t really new to me. Definitely not sorry, on the contrary, because this is very cool to hear, early 90’s hardcore (1991) that can certainly define the sound of that era.
Another collectible was shipped to me straight out of the land of the rising sun, Japan! The second release of the popular NJ band FURY OF FIVE. This is the Euro pressing on INNER RAGE Records. Not often a French label brings out something cool but this label definitely did with the release of KICKBACK’s “No One Gets Out Alive” 7″ and ONE LAST SIN’s “The Fall Of Darkness” 7″. Very rare ones and hard to find, but already a while in my collection. This one; “Telling It Like It Is” is also very good sounding, not crucial for the sound development of Hardcore but good NYHC music nonetheless.
