TAKE OFFENSE United States Of Mind


A long awaited order came in. All the incoming vinyl was TAKE OFFENSE records. I’m getting used to the Reaper Records standards of quality, but still realize it is again a job very well done. Artwork looks great, with according vinyl colors, silver, opaque green and ultra clear vinyl.

Also a promotional limited flexi was printed on clear green. It’s actually the first time I see Reaper Records choosing for a flexi-disc format, and actually also my first experience with flexis.

A band can’t wish for more I think with such a label. About the band now. They still play that hard hitting hardcore style, but now seem to have evolved to a smoother metal sound. A more Metallica influenced delivery I think.With groove that reminds me of Violation. Not so explicit but still recognizable.. I immediately got hooked when listening to the download.

Along with the other pre-orders came a live-series 7 inch, on color red. With a big hole and an illustrated booklet of photo’s of the band members. Nothing extremely informative but still cool. My copy is numbered 63 out of 500.
