DESCRIPTION

In 1986, at the height of the hardcore movement in New York City, the underground scene gave birth to one the most original hybrids of hardcore. Back then lead vocalist Jim Williams had already established himself in the hardcore community as a drummer with such early bands as SARCASM and NAUSEA. Jim was passionate about bringing together an unlikely group of musicians to challenge the existing musical boundaries with something new and very exciting. And the many connections he had developed while working the door at CBGB made him uniquely suited for the challenge of assembling a diverse group, MAXIMUM PENALTY. After over a decade, the band has had seven releases on labels varying from Blackout Records to I Scream/ Roadrunner Records, have toured the US and Europe, taken hiatus and have now returned with a vengeance. In 2008, members of the Reaper Records family heard some of the new demo tracks and were enthusiastic to support a new album. By the end of the year, both parties met while a plan was hammered out to release the 15 track album the following year. Reaper Records was an obvious fit with their feet planted firmly in hardcore roots and a keen eye for its future. Reaper’s well-known commitment to hardcore and its consistent support for its bands made MAXIMUM PENALTY’s decision an easy one. The Reaper roster is rich and diverse with a broad spectrum of bands and Reaper fans are both discerning and open-minded. The first order of business was to complete an east coast tour with long time Reaper allies and friends TERROR. After the tour, the album was ready to be mastered and the album artwork finalized. October 2009 will bring the fruits of a seed first planted in 1986 and since then been cultivated by many different hands. It’s been a long road and the stories of both MAXIMUM PENALTY and this new LP have been fraught with false starts and disappointments. As Reaper Records enters, those pitfalls are at an end and the new era begins!
