Vinyl Colour: blue Release: 2015 Label: REVELATION Records
Beyond, though short lived in the NYHC scene (1988-1989), made an impact with their personal brand of Long Island metal-tinged hardcore with intricate riffage. The "Dew It!" demo was supposed to be recorded for Schism but the label folded before it got off the ground. They sold their demos through Some Records on the Lower East Side until the store closed and the rest were sold through mailorder. Originally recorded on a 1" tape and mixed on cassette, "Dew It!" has been remixed to give it the sound that was previously intended. Backed with the demo is Beyond's live set on WYNU's legendary punk and hardcore radio show, "Crucial Chaos," which was started in the late '80s and still continues to this day, nearly 25 years later. Members of Beyond have gone on to bands like Quicksand, Bold, Inside Out, Burn, Shelter, 108 and more. Revelation Records has combined these two gems on vinyl and paired it with a 20-page, 12" x 12" booklet.
