Next up is a 7" that I already had, but not on color. The same seller had this copy of 'Human Hatred' by Vaccine listed for another whopping $3, so I couldn't pass it up. If you don't know them, Vaccine plays straight edge powerviolence influenced hardcore. The songs by this band rarely exceed the 1 minute mark. For example, there are 10 songs on this 7" and the entire thing clocks in at a little over 4 minutes. This style of music done well is unfuckwithable, and this band definitely nails it. The sleeve for this one folds out into a 4 panel X. NICE. This first press color copy will replace my first press on black. Anyone interested in my black copy?

In Need of Painkillers
Here are two 7"s put out on one of my current favorite labels - the mighty Painkiller Records. First up is Dry-Rot's 'Subordinate.' I was able to snag this for a whopping $3 on eBay a few days back, which is a major score in my book. Dry-Rot play(ed)s a weird style of hardcore that is difficult to describe. All I can say is that if you like hardcore that's off the beaten path you will enjoy this band. The packaging for this one is really cool. The sleeve is actually a 20 page booklet with the lyrics, credits, and illustrations within. I really like the art style that's going on in here.
