LOU KOLLER FROM SICK OF IT ALL’S QUINTESSENTIAL GUIDE TO HARDCORE – DAY SEVEN
To celebrate the release of Sick of it All’s awesome new album, Based on a True Story, we asked SOIA vocalist Lou Koller to compile the definitive list of quintessential hardcore albums. Luckily for us and all of you, he agreed! So we’ll be running one entry a day from Lou’s list of the top-ten (+1) hardcore records of all time for the next couple of weeks. You can catch up on previous installments here; the sixth one is after the jump…
The Misfits, Earth A.D./Wolfs Blood
We all know how classic Walk Among Us is, but a lot of people slept on Earth A.D./Wolfs Blood, especially at the time it came out. But not the hardcore scene. Walk was more on the punk side, but Earth A.D. showed you could write thrashy hardcore that was catchy, too! “Devilock” and “Queen Wasp” get into your head and won’t come out. Noisy and fast and fun. Great stuff. Check it out if you haven’t already.
Based on a True Story is out now on Century Media. Visit Sick of it All on MySpace for tour dates and all the latest news from the band.
