Victim In Pain
Released: Jan 1984
Label: BRIDGE 9 RECORDS
Released in 1984, this first full-length from the seminal New York hardcore/thrash unit is one of the definitive examples of the genre, with yelled vocals, abrupt songs and almost no changes in tempo -- except to go faster. Lyrically, frontman Roger Miret rails against "the system," calls for unity and makes it clear that he will not tolerate poseurs of any kind. Regardless of any sameness some hardcore suffers from, its effect on isolated, pissed-off teens cannot be overstated. That said, best song "With Time" is anything but "traditional" in hardcore terms.
