Fucked Up Hidden World on 2LP
2006 Debut Back in Print!
2006's Hidden World, Fucked Up's debut full-length release, was recorded at Signal to Noise Studios with Jon Drew (Brutal Knights, Career Suicide). Cloaked in shades of unconventional aesthetics, symbolic overtones and a self-proclaimed "culture of confusion," the album marked a turning point for the Toronto-based band, transcending the boundaries of traditional hardcore with melody, aggression and expansive songwriting structures. Fucked Up taps into its collective influences, but in a challenging way that's off the beaten path of current hardcore traditions. In a word, Fucked Up and Hidden World are dangerous in a time when hardcore has become predictable, stale and manufactured.
