7" | INIT-07

Description:
The vinyl version of the 5-song CD-EP released on Converge's Deathwish Inc. label. Five songs, one-part metal, one-part hardcore; ex-members of Floodplain, Caligari, and the singer from Threadbare! This Sioux Falls 5-piece plays incredibly heavy metal-influenced hardcore. Same five songs, vinyl format, much cheaper than the CD version, too. Blue vinyl is sold out, black vinyl still available!

Story:
Terry from the Blinding Light, who was also in Caligari at the time, sent me a demo of The Blinding Light, his new band with a fellow ex-member of Floodplain, another member of Caligari, and the ex-vocalist of Threadbare. He said they were looking for labels to release something. It was good, and I said I would be down, and then he said they were going to be working with Jake from Converge's label, Deathwish Inc. who would be remastering and releasing the demo as a 5-song CD. Somewhere along the way, I offered to do a vinyl version. 10"s were out of my price range, so a 5-song 7" is what was agreed upon and that's what you have. For like half the price of the CD version too, it's the format to go with.

Pressing Info:

Reviews:

Maximum Rock N Roll #239:
"Crunchy distorted guitars, screaming hoarse vocals, double kick drum attack, chugga-chugga lines; all this adds up to some grind-influenced hardcore that really doesn't do too much for me at this moment. It's thick-sounding, it's near-violent, it's got plenty metal-influenced leads, it could be the next thing you get into."- WM
