The long awaited debut LP from NYC’s FLOWER “Hardly A Dream” is finally set to arrive.
FLOWER’s tedious approach to writing/creating/drawing their debut LP was carefully thought out and the result is a monumental anarcho punk /crust record.
“Hardly A Dream” Takes us on a bleak journey through the dark side of society. As soon as you drop the needle a dark atmosphere is immediately created with a slow intro featuring arpeggio guitar work that builds into pummeling d-beat crust. The albums vocals then leave you with a feeling of being crushed by the ever-present weight of living through our modern world of late stage capitalism that was built on the falsehoods of the so called American dream, religious hypocrisy’s, nationalism, and the greed of humankind.
FLOWER take many cues from predecessors and are most often (and rightfully so) compared to NAUSEA but they also take a heavy influence from ANTISECT, SACRILEGE & other greats. The artwork has a very RUDIMENTARY PENI feel and the record comes with an amazing 24.5 X 34.75 CRASS style poster jacket. All art work was meticulously hand drawn and overseen by the guitarist Willow in true DIY style and spirit. Willow was also cool enough to draw up a special shirt for the record release featuring an alternative PROFANE EXISTENCE backprint!

From the south to the north of Europe,both relatively new bands,but very unicque,deliver the cruelty of todays world,both by their own way.Ofcourse both bands(or some members had previous experience,and have another bands/projects/involement in the Crust/Neo-Crust,Metal scene through Europe and beyond.This is how genres/styles are mixed,this is how Crust mutates through the years,still keeping it’s bleak view to the society,with intensity,double guitars,raw bass lines…d-takt (by Myteri more),while Born For Slaughter,are unicque in their own way of mixing Crust with Metal,from fast driven tempo to slow,and down tuned sound,they send their message in package lyrics and music,both bands.As it’s announced by both of them,we’ll soon get some new materials from both bands.A must have for all who wanna hear todays sounds of this in some ways simmilar,but after you hear it,everyone involved in the Crust/Hardcore/Neo-Crust/Metal can get addicted by both bands,’cus ofcourse it’s a split.
