Missing 23rd

The Powers That Be

This is a reissue of their very rare debut LP and is something fans of old school hardcore should enjoy. There were only 1,000 copies pressed of the original vinyl LP, which contains 14 tracks that will make you think of Minor Threat, 7 Seconds and Gorilla Biscuits. This California quartet will hold you under their spell for the duration. With thoughtful, personally political lyrics and a powerful and catchy sound this band could make a lasting impression on today's hardcore scene. It's also good to see that straightedge is moving away from the more metal style and back to the roots of the sound.
