This is Solid State

Volume One

Solid State

Well, looks like we have here a bunch of pissed-off young men. You know, the kind of guys that like pictures of people with nails in them (i.e. the cover). Some of these guys have long hair and some have short hair (which seems to be the difference between metal and hardcore these days). 16 tracks of the Solid State Records line-up can be found here, featuring chugga E chords and strained vocal chords. Some standouts include Stretch Armstrong (short hair = hardcore), Embodyment (short hair), Extol (long hair = metal), Living Sacrifice (pretty decent, despite the bad name, and they are somewhere between long and short hairs), and Focal Point (short hair).

Solid State Records, P.O. Box 12698, Seattle, WA 98111-4698
