Modern classic hardcore revisited: Dead Stop - Done With You

Dead Stop - Done With You
Deranged Records - 2004

Dead Stop was a Belgian hardcore band heavily influenced by early 80's USHC. All tracks on this debut 12" ep has everything I love about hardcore: high energy, straight forward song writing, pissed shouted vocals, and hard breakdowns. The production is dead on for this style as well. Sadly, Dead Stop broke up A year or so later after releasing another 12" as well a s/t 7". I was lucky enough to see these guys in Minneapolis just before they broke up and they sounded just as good live. I will truly miss this band. This record is out of print, but you might be able to find it on small online distros.
