Union - Anaesthetized Ep

Up next is a 7" from the short-lived Swedish band Union.  Released in 1992 as a split between Tribal War Recs and Really Fast Records, this Ep was one of only two the band released.  Union played fairly straight-forward, fast HC with a slight crust feel and distinctive vocals.  This band seems to bridge the gap between classic Finnish HC like Terveet Kädet or Riistetyt and late 80s, early 90s U.S. bands that sought that sound, like Resist and Deprived.  This record would have been right at home on Profane Existence, both musically and lyrically.

  1. This was my favorite Tribal War release at the time but I haven't listened to it in 20 years. Thanks for posting! ...I was intrigued this cover had a color other than black & white on it..:)
