Sex Prisoner / Harm Done – Split [LP/CD/Tape]


Tucson’s favorite PV band Sex Prisoner teamed up with the frenchies from Harm Done on this record. After both bands worked on a European tour happening in October 2017 they thought “Why not putting out a split record for the occasion?”. Here it is, 8 tracks (4 each) of their own kind of furious Powerviolence / Hardcore filled with Metal influences.  Somewhere between Infest, Crossed Out, Despise You, Nails or Morbid Angel.

This record is a collaboration between 4 labels : STRAIGHT & ALERT records and RSR records for the European pressing. DEEP SIX records and TO LIVE A LIE records for the North American pressing.

Both pressings come on random colors wax with respective labels logos on the back cover. This is the European pressing on S&A / RSR.

Tape and CD version only available from STRAIGHT & ALERT records.
