The artwork for the front cover of the Rule Them All 12 inch did absolutely nothing to sell me on the band, but once I dug into the description for the band, and saw that it mentioned they took the sound of Silent Majority and blended it with Revolution Summer emo, I knew that I had to check them out. I fucking love Silent Majority, so a name drop like that certainly gets my attention.
While An Alignment Of Polarity was released back in 2018, I'm still counting this as another win in discovering new hardcore bands. I don't know how accurate the Silent Majority/Revolution Summer description is, but I am loving this record.
300 pressed on black vinyl. Cool zine style booklet is included as an insert with lyrics and writings for each song. Very cool.
As I was digging in and finding out more about Rule Them All, I discovered that preorders were up for the band's new 7 inch on Flatspot Records. Given how much I was digging the 12 inch, I didn't hesitate to get an order in for the new record.
Fuck. This is a great record. After really sitting down with these songs today, it makes me wonder how I can fit the record into my Top 10 for 2019.
Blue and yellow colored vinyl is limited to 100.
