V/A The Philadelphia Sound 10 inch (Paint it Black,Knives Out)


This compilation features some of the best Philly hardcore bands. Their unique sounds pick up where KID DYNAMITE and LIFETIME left off-somewhere between the hardness of New York's SICK OF IT LL and the heartfelt urgency of Richmond's AVAIL. This is the new Philadelphia Sound! THE CURSE is a quartet with a steady hardcore beat, flailing guitars, and honest everyday lyrics. Their stage presence has thrilled audiences up and down the East Coast, supporting the likes of THE BOUNCING SOULS, SICK OF IT ALL, and THE DILLINGER FOUR. PAINT IT BLACK features former and current members of LIFETIME, KID DYNAMITE, and GOOD RIDDANCE. Fast and brutal rhythms, the likes of early 80's BAD BRAINS, et al; a hint of melody in the guitars like 7 SECONDS, and the lyrics are screaming and political. GO FOR THE THROAT has the classic blue-collar hardcore beats and breakdowns that you just can't escape when you're born and bred on the East Coast. They work hard in life, and their art reflects it. KNIVES OUT is the chaotic, heavy, and dark side of the family. A dissonant mix of early BLACK FLAG swirled together with the early 90's San Diego hardcore sound, reminiscent of Ebullition and Gravity Records. Their music may actually be even tougher than their name! Each band carries a unique sound, but their vibe and scene is all about the Philly family. They often play shows together, and share members with each other as well as other Philly acts. They support each other and local venues and artists. Philly truly is the city of brotherly love. _________________________________________________________________
