Lethal Lethal's Hardcore Hit Parade

7 Inch



‘Working for nothing, and living for less, pointless life, never getting rest, I’m already dead, a pig slowly bled’ (When Will I Sleep?)

This is no frills US hardcore played with fierce precision and relentless aggression.  New York’s Lethal have no time for even a hint of self-indulgence – this is hardcore honed down to its absolute core essentials.  Played with impressive lock-step discipline, surging riffs, and a bludgeoning rhythm section provide the perfect foil to raw vocals dripping with desperate urgency.  Swaggering breakdowns on More & More and How Will I Sleep? provide temporary respite from the rabid, nihilistic onslaught.
