Chain Of Strength

Maybe it's just me, but the Chain Of Strength remix/re-issue fell short in a few regards. It wasn't necessarily the overall sound, but it had more to do with all of the instrument parts that they cut out, or altered. I decided to go ahead and rip my 7"s that I have.

True Till Death
This rip comes from my green vinyl copy from the first press.

What Holds Us Apart
I have two copies of this 7". One is on First Strike Records out of Europe, and one is on Mindpower Records. I ripped the Mindpower Records version, which is technically just the 2nd press of the Foundation Records version.

Most of you probably already have the One Thing That Still Holds True cd that Revelation put out back in like 96 or 97. Listen to these tracks, and then listen to the re-issue cd, and you'll be able to hear plenty of differences.

Man, thanks for posting these! Two of the best 7"s ever released.

If you take requests, I'm dyin' for the Insight & Project X 7"s, as well as "We'll Make the Difference."

You're a prince among men, G.

Thinking about mixing differences in records that are reissued by Rev, I've always been bummed by the remixed version of YoT's "A Time We'll Remember." In the original, there's a string harmonic in a break that I just love. In the reissue, they "fixed" it, and now it bugs me every time I hear it...

Does this make me a HC nerd or a hard-core nerd? You decide. I've a suspicion that the answer is both...

Swwweeeeettttt. The originals are best. I've got an old comp 7" with an early version of Letdown (and a Brotherhood song) which is raw as fuck. Must get that ripped someday.
