One of my favourite hardcore bands out there. Such a crushing record for fans of Aerosols, Raw Nerve or Das Oath.
Failures unveil their magnum opus dissonance with Decline and Fall. It is a work years in the making, of painstaking scrutiny and craftsmanship, delivered in an agonized effort to boil down the very essence of what it means to endure the habitual torments of existence. In just over 14 minutes these 14 songs dissect the intricacies and endless defeats that coincide with our fruitless pursuit of happiness and fulfillment, and illustrate how, by rendering these hopeless, baseless projections of our deepest insecurities, we come to define our demise as the very core of our lives. Humanity’s toil may endure, but whether we drag along for the ride or tumble off into a ditch to rot makes no difference either way.
The records comes w/ two panel fold out cover and insert – art by Mark McCoy – on transparent vinyl
