IRON LUNG - Life. Iron Lung. Death. [remastered] LP w/download (LUNGS-069)

"I may have a million ways of saying brutal, but "Life. Iron Lung. Death." has left me damn near speechless. Anyone who reads this zine ( with any frequency knows that I live for IRON LUNG. In fact, I have been known to mark time by using IRON LUNG releases as reference points. Some of you may have thought me a bit daft. Some of you may have thought I "overdid" it in my praise of the band. Well, HA HA HA! Once you listen to this album, you'll see that I was RIGHT and you were WRONG! There simply aren't enough words of praise in the English language for me to adequately sing the praises of this album. Jon and Jensen have outdone themselves. Literally. Some of the moments on this are the fastest IRON LUNG have ever tackled and others are the most sludge filled. So many extreme bands seem to reach a cruising speed early in their careers and then just ride it out. IRON LUNG, by contrast, keeps pushing harder and faster each year. The band takes the momentum of the split LP with LANA DAGALES (the band's finest work until now) and cranks everything up one more notch. If you are one of the unlucky ones who have not yet learned to breathe with an IRON LUNG, then this is the perfect album to start with." -Jeb Branin 2004
 Lovingly remastered and recut, housed in a high test tip-on sleeve. A classic finally available again in the proper form. 400 on black, 100 on green.

RAKTA in SP a couple nights ago.

Did you know that we are doing the next RAKTA LP? It's true. We are tightening screws as hard as we can to have it ready for their US/Japan tour in early July.

SCUMRAID California tour.

To say this is truly a West Coast tour would be false. Californians take note and go wild when these noise masters play near you. They will have a new tour tape with them that fucking rips. You should get it if you can. If you can't, we will do our best to get some.  Also the SCUMRAID LP is recorded but they will not have that with them because it isn't even finished being mixed yet. We hope to have that out later this year.
