Dead Stop is a Belgian Hardcore band that plays another style than what Belgium is mainly known for. They play fast and pissed old school hardcore punk and care about almost nothing. The record was made by Reflex and Wolfpack originally. That label reissued some American Hardcore classics, in the same genre of music. But this is a repress or a USA-press that was made two years later on the American label Six Feet Under Records. If you like Antidote, Negative Approach and The Abused mixed with United Blood era Agnostic Front you should get this.

In earlier times I liked this record more than I now do. It gave me that feeling of mayhem. And reminded me of the early American 80’s but with more hate and less morality. Although that I am lesser into that style nowadays, it didn’t stop me from buying this rarer version of the release.
It’s the acetate cover with a silk screened Belgian flag cover behind it, what gives a great effect. It’s a hard record to photograph, certainly after sunset. Copies were sent out in pre-orders way back in 2004.
