MELODIC-HARDCORE. KID DYNAMITE's eponymous debut wanted to party like it's 1982, when hardcore was a heartfelt reflection of an alienated life and screaming your head off indecipherably was a performing art. At the same time, this wasn't no time warp. Refined for a post-punk generation, these LIFETIME and INK & DAGGER alumni kept it relevant with a perspective of the past 20 some-odd years, the wisdom of maturity, and a progressive lyrical approach that carries as much responsibility as it does rage. Their self-titled debut album, originally released in 1998 on Jade Tree is a lesson in dynamics that combines the rabid energy and wailing pulse of hardcore-punks earliest pioneers while updating its sound for a post-hardcore generation.(Colored) vinyl includes a digital download card.

MELODIC-HARDCORE. KID DYNAMITE's 2nd and final album from 2000 was a lot like their 1st - only "shorter, faster, louder". A gloriously no-frills hardcore album - so straightforward, precise, and skillfully executed, it probably had to be their last. This full-length is rooted in an affinity for early '80s hardcore that's both straightforward and powerful, yet it is one of modern hardcore's most progressively realized works.
