DROPDEAD: Arms Race EP: 7” flexi

Sep 16, 2021

Two-song flexi from the long-standing masters of East Coast grinding hardcore. These two songs pay tribute to Balthasar Gerards Kommando (better known as B.G.K. from the Netherlands) and Poison Idea (a band that needs no introduction). Probably not the best material Dropdead has to offer and certainly not my picks for best song from either legendary band; my votes go to “Pray for God, Kill for Christ” and “The Badge.” A fun listen but nearly any other Dropdead record is a better bet if you’re looking to have your head blown clean off your shoulders. –Juan Espinosa (Peterwalkee, peterwalkeerecords.com / Dropdead, dropdeadhc.bandcamp.com)
