This is Pg. 99 Document #8. When this album came out I was pretty much over-saturated with screamo/metal/grind type hardcore records but this is one of those few album that has stood the test of time for me. Pg. 99 really made this sound all their own with brilliant transitions but not just the typical tempo stuff. This album has tons of styles and feelings that are the hallmarks of the changes that occur throughout the album. Pg. 99 prove it doesn’t have to be all math rock + grind part + pleading vocals for the win. The songs on this album have soul and when it’s all said and done, this album is a classic.
It would be a terrible disservice to this band for me to try to pigeonhole their sound so I will leave that to you with this LINK. Go listen to the record and and I’m sure you’ll go buy it for sure.
As far as this pressing is concerned….this is what I love to see in a hardcore record. Silk screened – two panel jacket with a thick black and white booklet inside. From what I’ve read this pressing consists of 200 on red, 200 on white and 600 on black vinyl. I love this kind of rawness in packaging, it’s both beautiful and simplistic… everything hardcore is supposed to be. Robotic Empire did a fantastic job with this pressing as they do with everything they do .
Here is an extensive look at the package. Maybe a few too many pics but hey, I did it.
These are all shots of the booklet.
