ASR002 THE DISASTER Black And White And Red All Over LP

Lyrically dark and desperate, The Disaster come out of New York City with a blast of powerful and melodic hardcore with raspy forced singing. The music is classic hardcore with melodic sensibilities. THE DISASTER sound like the most incredible combination of KID DYNAMITE, IN MY EYES and AMERICAN NIGHTMARE. The hoarse vocals are hard and harsh. They fuel the music with angst-ridden lyrics about depression, death and other dismal outcomes. Great lyrics, fast-paced drumming, blazing guitars, and thunping bass propel this into a fireball of fury. Every song is short, unyielding, and lethal. While banging out straight-ahead adrenalized rhythms, The Disaster is capable of sneaking in gusts of catchy melody. Aggressive and vicious, THE DISASTER have delivered one emotional fantastic release that emphasizes all that is right about having passion for hardcore ('color me colonial'), and all that is true about fatalistic thoughts in moments of utter despair ('an ode to a dawn that will never come'). Jaw-dropping artwork and packaging, along with the vibrant production top off a release that will turn some heads.Featuring John Twentyfive of NOT SORRY fame.
