Proletariat- Soma Holiday LP. In 1983, the release of The Proletariat’s debut album ‘Soma Holiday’ was a shocker to many people. While American Hardcore was becoming more generic, The Proletariat unleashed something strikingly original. The album’s opening track is a call to arms: the primitive, militaristic bass guitar and drums are sliced with razor-sharp guitar dissidence and vocals full of spit and bite. Truly ground breaking while remaining tuneful, their debut is considered one of the most brilliant albums to come out the early 80’s American hardcore scene.This is the first official vinyl reissue of this classic album. Over the years ‘Soma Holiday’ really resonated with people because of The Proletariat's sideway's approach to Hardcore. Rather than relying on speed and power chords, The Proletariat merged fractured guitar riffs with and a post-punk feel all played with the intensity and anger of a Hardcore band. This music sounds as fresh as when it was released in ‘83 and the politics are still relevant today. This is a nice quality reissue with a two sided printed insert lyrics sheet. Recommended.
