Rest In Pieces- My Rage LP
Here is the classic Rest In Pieces 'My Rage' LP. This is fantastic NYHC, one of the best hardcore records ever, imo.
It has two guys from Straight Ahead in it, and while it doesn't rip off Straight Ahead, you can definately hear an influence.
There are eleven songs and all of them are 'hits'. The lyrics definately take a 'tongue in cheeck' approach to the lyrics, but they don't really go into the realm of silly at all. They are fun but have meaning behind them.
The music is not completely unlike Straight Ahead, but like I said, it really isn't a rip off. There are some monster mosh parts in here and the final song is all over the map, blazing away, until it ends in a giant clash of instruments, including a non cheesy solo that fits the music perfectly.
Check it out!
Besides this, there is a 7" that is nowhere near as good as this LP. There is a 2nd LP, called Under My Skin, which take a slightly metal turn, and despite a couple good songs, it is a pretty bad record. There are a couple demos as well. One of them is called 'The Nose Demo' and it is mostly songs that are on this LP and it is very good. The sound quality is like the LP but a little more raw. I will post that eventually as well.
