Vinyl // 12"

Finally back in print one of my personal favorites of the early 80's. Proletariat had a really unique sound that set them apart from the rest of the Boston hardcore bands and their lyrics remain some of my all time favorites. They also had a demo and a second LP, but this one is just a masterpiece. No other hardcore band really sounded/sounds like this, the songs are kind of slow, but have a power and intensity. From what I understand these guys went from 77 punk to hardcore so fast that they pretty much made up their own style of hardcore instead of copying what other bands were doing, the result-a totally intense and unique sound.
