Vinyl Colour: black Release: 2014 Label: Tankcrimes Records
Southern California's Final Conflict was highly influenced by British punk bands like Discharge and were one of the first bands to blend hardcore's simplistic and manic sound and heavy metal's musicianship with any degree of success. These spiky-haired punks created a sound that would go on to be emulated by hundreds of bands that followed. Originally released on Pushead's Pusmort Records in 1987 then later reissued by Relapse Records in 1994, this stellar album now finds a new home at Tankcrime Records and includes a 24-page booklet with old photos, flyers and interviews. Vinyl version includes digital download and fold-out poster.
