I really can't remember where I got this from on the internet, but it rules. It's fast hardcore with the loud talking/yelling style of vocals with lots of gang vocals. The music (and singer for that matter) really remind me of Bane a lot which is good for Life's Halt because Bane is one of my favourite bands of all time. There a lots of flashy, crunchy power chords, fast snare rolls and an awesome bass sound that's bouncy and chunky. No chugging open-D chords here bitches. No frilly melodic passages, no singing, no pop-punk horse shit. Just fast, honest hardcore. The way I like it.
I uploaded the whole 9 track CD because I don't want to pick and choose what to upload. I'm in the process of tracking down a copy for myself. This album is entitled "We Sold Our Souls For Hardcore" and I know they have a 7" split with What Happens Next?, as well as some cool footage on Youtube of their 2001 tour.

Make it right, and make it fucking last!

I totally admit being way too into vinyl and I buy stuff whenever I can. For instance Deathwish has been doing auctions every year on eBay and I buy stuff from them. But some people definitely go too far. Here are some examples:
Converge Test Press
Another Converge Test Press
Shipwreck AD Test Press
Pulling Teeth Test Press

I know of those are test presses, but fucking seriously. I also need to point out that Wes Eisold's book sold for 180 dollars. Fuck me.
