Released: 1998 and 2005
The long deleted debut album finally sees the light of day with this reissue. Originally intended for release in 1998, this album has been completely reworked and remastered for 2005! An aggressive blend of harsh vocals, distorted synths, and powerful breakbeats, ''Product'' draws upon influences such as Numb and Lassigue Bendhaus to deliver a powerhouse album that sounds as relevant today as it did in 1998. Released on Solidgreysky. Limited edition.
Product was our first full-length release, back in 1998. It appeared on SINless Records just before the labels untimely demise. A good document of where we were at the time, with a different lineup and a radically different sound. Below are the credits that appeared in the CD liner notes and some samples of the tracks.
