Dem Bones (Reissue)
Released on April 9, 2013
After having left Discharge in 1983, brothers Tezz and Bones Roberts
reunited to form Broken Bones. While Discharge was moving in a poof
metal direction, Broken Bones added a metal influence to their sound
without ever sacrificing any of the power and aggression of hardcore
music. "Dem Bones" was Broken Bones' debut LP, released in 1984, and it
showed the band combining the raw and urgent sound of British hardcore
punk with a subtle metal influence and searing guitar leads. Their style
would pave the way for bands like the English Dogs, Onslaught, and
Sacrilege and influence many prominent thrash metal bands as well. This
LP is an official repress on Fallout Records, the same label as the
original pressing, and in a gatefold sleeve like the original as well.
Efforts were taken to make this as similar to the 1984 version of this
release as possible. Social Napalm Records will be handling the
distribution for this outside of England.
