A reissue of two later albums by the best Boston hardcore band ever. While most of their contemporaries were slowing down to play bad bar rock complete with hair-shaking guitar solos (SSD, Gang Green, Jerry’s Kids, DYS), the Freeze kept plugging away with albums full of paranoia and frustration. I’m not saying they were devoid of metal; the guitars were always very prevalent, more so than most other bands of that era. By the time they recorded these two albums, the solos had become longer and more technical, but this stuff will never be confused with ass like How We Rock or Older… Bud-Weiser, or even a band like Propagandhi. If you’ve never heard them, imagine a more intense, drug-addled Adolescents.
