Here’s a little treat for your rage-filled Monday morning commute. Â NOT TODAY, slowÂ guy in the left lane.
Southern Lord Recordings, crafters of the hard rawk, are reissuing a collection of demos and 7”s from the late 80s post-hardcore group Brotherhood. Â At first listen, they sound like a perfect opening band to early 80s Minor Threat, but if you peel the onion back a little, you can see a big influence on the late 80s scene in Brotherhood’s hometown of Seattle. Â Stoney metal sludge with a hardcore ethos. Â Let’s kick a little ass today, eh comrades?
There’s a blood red and a true blue colorway as well for the record, but I’ve been told that the Seahawks variant (silver, blue and green tri-color) is the rarest of the three.
The definitive album of pissed, cathartic, raging HARDCORE from Seattlesâ€™ own: Brotherhood. The members of Brotherhood have gone onto to be involved in some of the most important bands of the last 20 years (Sunn 0))) & Foo Fighters to name just a few). These raw recordings from 1988 are the catalyst and undeniable roots that started it all!
The LP comes with a thirty-two page 7â€³x7â€³ booklet and more, packaged in a thick Stoughton tip-on single pocket jacket. The vinyl is available in both Blood Red, True Blue and Seattle Seahawks colors.
