ANTI SECT THE RISING OF THE LIGHTS Limited Gatefold 180gram Vinyl LP

True legends never die. One of the most influential of all the bands to emerge from the febrile anarcho-punk scene of the early Ď80s, Antisectís notoriety and extraordinary impact on the sound of fast, furious and heavy music far outweigh their lowly status in the history books. Emerging from the wave of intensely political punk rock bands that grew from the subversive triumphs of Crass in the late Ď70s, anarcho-punk always offered more than mere bug-eyed polemic: instead, via records like Antisectís seminal 1983 debut album In Darkness There Is No Choice, it brought artistic depth and aesthetic focus to a punk scene that was otherwise flailing around in its death throes. A wild and subtly inventive step forward from their first efforts as a more straight ahead hardcore punk band, Antisectís debut is now widely acknowledged as one of the most important punk albums of its time. Meanwhile, the original bandís last official release, the two-track Out From The Void EP in 1985, brought a more metallic edge to their sound and hinted at heavier and darker things to come. By 1987, however, Antisect had disintegrated and silence reigned, the bandís reputation as anarcho-punk legends growing steadily in their absence. Now, the seemingly impossible has become the very real. Antisect return in 2017 with a new album that could hardly be a more righteous soundtrack for humanityís spiralling demise. The spirit of í83 is very much alive and its most potent protagonists are once again kicking doggedly against the pricks.
