Stripmines - Crimes Of Dispassion LP
NEW. SORRY STATE RECORDS. Debut LP from the most rugged and uncompromising band in North Carolina hardcore. Since their earliest days Stripmines have been combining crushing crust punk rhythms, Skitkids-esque rocked-out riffs and leads, and pit-annihilating breakdowns, but the monstrous production and ambitious, non-intuitive songwriting on Crimes of Dispassion bring their sound to new levels of intensity, while vocalist Matt Lavallee still emits a Brannon-esque bellow that is one of the most intense and identifiable voices in punk today. The mailorder version is limited to 100 copies and features smoke-colored vinyl and a hand-screened obi strip with metallic silver ink.
