Electric Fetus

New York Hardcore legends CRUMBSUCKERS are at once the most overlooked and the most pivotal of all hardcore metal crossoverists. While not held in the same regard as CBGBs-borne vets like Agnostic Front or Cro-Mags, CRUMBSUCKERS were a force unto themselves. Their 1986 debut, Life of Dreams is a classic of the genre, but it was with Beast on My Back, originally issued by Combat in 1988, that they bridged their trademark aggression with a new sense of technicality and musical fluidity. It may be the crossover's twisted swansong. From the piano-led opening salvo, Charge, its clear that guitarists Chuck Linehan and Robbie Koebler werent merely content to ignite pits at CBs or LaMours but instead to go where few six-stringers, save maybe big-leaguers like Megadeth or Metallica, had gone before. Tied together with the throaty roar of Chris Notaro, B.O.M.B. crosses technicality with aggression in a way that had never been accomplished before and in the process, rewrote the hardcore rulebook for generations to come.

You will be emailed if there is an additional charge before your order is processed. Due to new VAT laws, we are unable to ship to the UK, Norway, Brazil, and the 27 countries in the EU.
