REAL ENEMY: Life with the Enemy: LP

Mar 17, 2015

Real Enemy was an early—some say the first—Pittsburgh hardcore band, active 198____. Though they never managed to release any vinyl, they did manage a cassette demo, and this is a vinyl reissue of that demo. The music here is a prime slice of early ‘80s Northeast hardcore that just smokes—tight, taut, zippy, and delivered with purpose and intent. The packaging here is flat-out gorgeous, with a faithful reproduction of the original demo’s cover on the front of the album, inserts, download card, and a fold out with a shit-ton of liner notes.
