incl. VAT, plus shipping

GENRE - Hardcore
RECORD LABEL - Quality Control

One sided 12” vinyl with screenprinted b side. Matte card 3mm card sleeve and double sided square insert.

Imagine making a band that’s equal parts Neglect, Mayhem and Flatlinerz made by some Paris skinheads et voila, you get Take it in Blood. Those who love CD-only 90s heavy hardcore will recognise the vibe instantly, carrying that distinctive sound where the drums and bass lead the charge. Every part is a dance part, and the pace is relentless. The lyrics are as dark and painful as any Sheer Terror or Neglect track, and straight to the point without any of that high brow shit. Sung by Tonio, who grew up in the tower blocks around Paris, personal stories are retold in songs such as the EP’s title track or 20 Bars of Love.

Part of the new wave of Paris hardcore, along with bands like Worst Doubt, Heabussa and labelmates Cold Decay, Take it in Blood also recorded at ‘the spot’, aka Chateau Vergogne, known for its vintage sounds run by Maxime from Rixe. The result is a drum sound that feels like it’s beating up your eardrums and gang vocals that sound like they recorded 2000 people in a stadium. What’s not to like?

However, we can not guarantee that no damage on the way occurs. Ordering is at one's own risk. Vinyl might be delivered unsealed as we have to open copies to check vinyl colours, if not sufficiently labeled by the distributor / label.

These mock ups are digital representations of what we expect the final product to look like - however they do not represent the final product.
