Reach the Sky Open Roads and Broken Dreams

The tough-to-find 1998 debut release from one of the leaders of the new school East Coast hardcore movement gets an amazing re-release treatment. The six original Brian McTernan-produced tracks that helped establish the Boston-based thrashers as one of the best on the scene are here, remastered for extra umph!, along with an unreleased track and a blistering cover of the Rites of Spring classic "Spring.” For fans it's a must have, for anyone interested in hearing good East Coast hardcore for a new millennium, it’s a good introduction.
