Graven Image-Kicked Out of the Scene 7"

(((re-post from Dec. 16/09@10:24pm)))
here's a great unknown 7". i bought it a while ago for only $10. there's one on ebay now for $94, wow. i can't find any info on this band but i don't think they did much after this 1983 release. most of this record is just thrashed out, but very tight. the singer's got a pretty high pitched voice, but not even close to being annoying. i love how the instruments sound, the drums sound sick, very tight snare. you can hear some mistakes but it's so tight. just look at the cover, you know it's going to be good. lyrics on the last track can be confusing, saying to punks that you shouldn't talk bad about god because you might need him someday (his words).
1. day after 5/5 (sweet opening, drums then a sick bass riff.)
2. close your eyes 4/5 (fast.)
3. operation shrink 2.5/5 (too slow.)
4. wrong way to utopia 5/5 (great vocals on this track.)
5. double life 5/5 (crazy thrashed out drums.)
6. dear abby 4/5 (i need your help.)
7. nails and thorns 3/5 (hardcore.)
overall: 7/10 strongly recommended (just for the drums.)
this is pretty rare, but keep checking eBay, it will pop up, some time, hopefully, for you, that's it.


  1. Classic, and Double Life is definitely a 5/5.

  2. Cool EP, I saw these guys about five or six times and still own the "Your Skull Is My Bowl" split cassette with Honor Role.

  3. oh that's awesome Epic Warfare. i wish i had that cassette.
