They were signed to Victory Records at that time but got kicked off the label. And the records that Victory Records pressed for this release were all destroyed short after … Continue reading One Life Crew
Systems Overload was the name of the 1995 INTEGRITY album that got me hooked to these guys, 'systems overload' was also the term that might be fitting with the situation the band released this album in the nineties. A engineer named Bill Korecky oversaw the production and apparently the jagged vision of Dwid and Aaron's … Continue reading INTEGRITY – Systems Overload (A2 / Orr mix)

Hours spend behind turntables and computers have left me with an ever growing lump on my back, damaged hearing and virtually no social life anymore.
