  • Limited Edition 7" Lathe Record
    Record/Vinyl + Digital Album

    Hand-cut, double-sided, round clear & black lathe 7" record. Housed in a full-color foldover jacket with lyrics & photos, printed on 120lb smooth, uncoated cover.

    Lathe cut records are cut manually, meaning the drop of the cutting needle is done by hand. This means that auto-players will not always track the beginning grooves. They may have slightly more surface noise (due to static build-up and dust) or an occasional light distortion in some frequencies but are still very listenable. The volume will be a little lower than a modern record, so please increase the volume on your speakers when spinning. The records should track well, even on more standard turntables, but if you have problems, adjust your tonearm weight and your anti-skate settings.

    Includes unlimited streaming of Demo 2020 via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.

Intro 01:01
Broken Vow
2.
Expiation 02:28
The commodification of sentience will not be tolerate The remnants of our past ways must be incinerated The complete and utter rejection of who we were told to be The entire expiation of our unconscious complicity Expiate my greed Expiate my blindness Expiation before expiration If we continue the complacency We will write our own demise The only step left is liberation Liberate Liberation
3.
You wear it like a badge of honor When all it does is make you a target Justice will be swift for your smugness All you are is a coward Who hides behind a red cap You know what it symbolizes And the left will not forgive that No mercy for voluntary ignorance The people will not allow Themselves to become your victim The underestimation of the forces of the masses Is the overestimation of your life span No freedom of speech For a fear monger We will not let the violence continue We are proud to declare ourselves The New Resistance When humanity is compromised Violence is necessitated
4.
Stronger 02:48
I watched it dictate your societal vocabulary And control your association But the entire time It controlled me too And I was judging from the inside Unable to dissent Unable to cease playing your game Break free You brought me to my fucking knees Free from fucking conviction Unable to enjoy Life without distractions Separation from what is holding me down will breed the freedom I have always chased We faced the day together Wasted and obscene Free from our fucking morals And an attitude serpentine Look up into the mirror See my shame staring back at me I must fucking sever with immediacy I am so much stronger

about

The first demo from the youthful, Connecticut hardcore band, Broken Vow introduces the band in a powerful way. Spanning just 4 tracks in 9 minutes, Broken Vow delivers a strong anti-fascist, anti-racist message while calling for liberation against the right. Each song is direct, urgent and full of revelations and hope for a better, equal future. Broken Vow delivers this message with songwriting in the vein of early Earth Crisis, Count Me Out, and Strain—perfectly fitting within the 90’s New Age or Indecision Records roster.
