The Good Life Recordings catalog seems impossible to complete. What many people don’t know is that Good Life is a parental-label who has sister-labels also. FINAL BEATDOWN Recordings is one of them. Another one is GREEN LEAF Recordings.
But let’s start with Final Beatdown Recordings, the sub-label has got some renown bands in her catalog. Bands like BREAKDOWN (NYHC fame), E-TOWN CONCRETE (Ghetto-metal kings from New Jersey) and STIGMATA. But also one Belgian band called CRAWLSPACE. Some releases came on black vinyl and color vinyl.
Here is a collection shot to see them all together in all their glory:
#01 BREAKDOWN “Battle hymns For An Angry Planet”#02 STIGMATA “Do Unto Others”
#03 CRAWLSPACE “Enter The Realm of Chaos”
#04 E-TOWN CONCRETE “The Second Coming”
As far as I know there’s one vinyl release on GREEN LEAF Recordings and that’s the GWYLLIONS LP called “Idiosyncracy”. My copy comes on BROWN vinyl.
There’s also SOULREAPER Records under which the metal releases were housed… But that’s for another post.
The musicians choose in this album for a more Heavy Metal approach. What's unusual for H8000 bands. As most of them play extremer Metal. Though together with the sound of the female vocals, not that unusual. Lyrics are well written and are still relevant. The ethical and moral side are strong.
