The Freeze – “Land Of The Lost” LP
Long serving Massachusetts punks who first made their mark with their contributions to the legendary compilation This Is Boston, Not L.A. back in 1982. This is the debut album, originally released on Modern Method Records in 1983. Unlike some of their local peers, The Freeze opted for a less muscular approach to hardcore, and concentrated on speed and catchy songwriting instead, (like the Adolescents). Hugely influential, their sound and style could be heard in other 80s bands like Screaching Weasel, SNFU, White Flag, Adrenalin OD and Stupids. This is the Record Store Day (2020) repress on Italian label Radiation, and is limited to 700 hand-numbered copies.
