Stripmines - "Crimes of Dispassion" LP

Debut LP from the most rugged and uncompromising band in North Carolina hardcore. Since their earliest days Stripmines have been combining crushing crust punk rhythms, Skitkids-esque rocked-out riffs and leads, and pit-annihilating breakdowns, but the monstrous production and ambitious, non-intuitive songwriting on Crimes of Dispassion bring their sound to new levels of intensity, while vocalist Matt Lavallee still emits a Brannon-esque bellow that is one of the most intense and identifiable voices in punk today.
