Info: By Jesus H. Chris - So the minute we got back from Best Friends Day in Richmond, we put our noses to the grindstone and got to work on a recording for our side of a dream-come-true split 7″ with Canadian thrash legends Sacrifice!
Sacrifice recorded a crushing version of Rush‘s “Anthem” and we’re recording a cover of Corrosion of Conformity‘s 1987 opus “Technocracy”, which was one of the greatest and most outrageous entries into a genre that we used to call “crossover” back in the 80′s.
Capturing it’s essence is definitely one of the most challenging things we’ve ever faced as a band. I dare other bands to try it.
Hopefully it will get mastered and be off to the pressing plant this week. I’d love to have some copies to give to Corrosion of Conformity at Riot Fest in Chicago this October. Look for it from Winnipeg’s War On Music record label!
By Greg Pratt - Some more details have surfaced regarding the much-ballyhooed Propagandhi and Sacrifice split seven-inch. As we reported back in August, the record will contain Propagandhi's cover of Corrosion of Conformity's hardcore/metal crossover classic "Technocracy" and Sacrifice's take on "Anthem," Rush's classic piece of Canadian prog rock. Word has dropped that this little slice of punk/metal heaven now has a release date and the suitably awesome cover art has been unveiled.
The record, which is limited to 1,000 copies, is due out December 10 through Winnipeg's War on Music Records. The label will be taking pre-orders on their website in a couple of weeks. For the time being, you can email them directly at firstname.lastname@example.org to place a pre-order.
The cover art, as seen above, pays awesome homage to iconic Rush and Corrosion of Conformity album covers, and was hand-drawn by Propagandhi bassist/vocalist Todd Kowalski.
