We’re pleased to bring you the four-way split from Bitter Melody Records, featuring Vatican, Funerals, Sanction and Iron Curtain (listen below). Each band has contributed two songs each, which feature heavy 90s influenced hardcore. Pre-orders for the LP have been launched and are available here: bittermelodyrecords.limitedrun.com.
The split is being pressed on 200 oxblood colored LPs and 300 black LPs and cut at 45 RPM. LPs will come with a download code and should be shipping to the label in a few weeks. The test presses have already been approved.
Nolan from Vatican had this to add about the release:
“Vatican (Savannah, GA) has actually become fairly well acquainted with all of the bands involved. We’ve played dates with Sanction (Long Island, NY) and befriended members of Iron Curtain (Inland Empire, CA) and Funerals (Portland, OR) when we toured to the west coast this past Spring. We were looking to release new music as soon as possible last fall and had been asking around to see if any other friends were looking to put something out. Sanction and Iron Curtain had already planned a 4-way split release and had two other bands fall through. We had already asked Funerals to do something with us because we had both been part of Blasphemour Records. Things worked themselves out and we decided to fill the spots on the 4-way split idea. We got in touch with Grant of Bitter Melody Records, who I also had the pleasure of hanging out with in December. We all bounced ideas back and forth and the project came together as smoothly as it possibly could have. It’s been a lot of work, but I think we’re all extremely proud of the outcome, which are 8 ass-beating tracks.”
