RAW POWER: Screams from the Gutter: LP

One of my all time favorite punk records of all time gets the vinyl reissue! This record brought Italian punk rock to the forefront to most Americans and around the world. As good as it sounded back then, it still stands the test of time as a powerful record. When punk and metal were melding together to create crossover, this band played it with originality and energy. I have seen the band live a few times in recent years, and when songs from this LP are played, people react with the most enthusiasm for these classics. It’s good to see that it comes back in its original format to be heard the way it was intended.
