STRIPMINES

crimes of dispassion (2012/SORRY STATE)

HARDCORE. Debut LP from the most rugged and uncompromising band in North Carolina hardcore. Since their earliest days, STRIPMINES has been combining crushing crustpunk 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 hardcore today. Vinyl includes a digital download card.
