Brotherhood Till Death on LP + 32-Page Book
The definitive album of pissed, cathartic, raging hardcore from Seattles’ own Brotherhood whose members have gone onto to be involved in some of the most important bands of the last 20 years. These raw recordings from 1988 are the catalyst and undeniable roots that started it all! This Southern Lord reissue includes a 32 page 7” x 7” booklet with liner notes and tons of photos from the era. Packaged in a thick Stoughton tip-on single pocket jacket. Faithfully remastered by Brad Boatright.
Having raged the West Coast from their 1987 inception to their disbanding just over two years later, Brotherhood existed alongside Insted, Bl’ast, Chain Of Strength and Uniform Choice. The members of the band were all bred in the Northwest on The Accused, Poison Idea, The Melvins, and with East Coast threads born of SSD, DYS, Corrosion Of Conformity and Straight Ahead woven into their sound they created a powerful strain of straightedge hardcore in which the band conveyed their intolerance for racism, sexism and more through their lyrical basis and on-stage delivery.
Their relatively short-lived run went on to inspire many of the seminal bands that have followed in hardcore and straightedge such as Undertow, Unbroken, Champion, No Tolerance and many more. Members of Brotherhood have posthumously forged numerous other musical endeavors including but not limited to Christ On A Crutch, Sunny Day Real Estate, Foo Fighters, Resolution, Digh Down, Burning Witch, Engine Kid, Sunn O))) and Goatsnake.
