CORPSE, THE: Fight against the Rules: CD

From what I can tell, this is a CD reissue of a tape-only release by this pissed-off Polish hardcore band that existed from 1985-1989, though a lot of the information in the liner notes is in Polish (the lyrics and an interview conducted in 2007 are thankfully translated into English), so don’t quote me on that. This isn’t normally my thing, but this band is definitely as good as, if not better than, a lot of the western crossover bands that existed at the time. Plus it’s always amazing to me that bands like this existed in the Soviet bloc. A really neat piece of history! –Chris Mason
